I was involved in a scuffle at a club in a casino between me and one other guy. it started verbally much earlier in the night in the casino but in the club I was very drunk and it seemed like I was the aggressor and sucker punched him in the video. Casino security detained me, he pressed charges and I was taken to jail for misdemeanor battery. I have a dui 3 years ago, I have a good job and I'm 25. I could afford a reasonable attorney if I had to but don't want to if there would be no way to get the battery off myrecord
You need an attorney.
As mentioned above, it is possible that the case doesn't get past the screening level at the DA. When my partner does these, this is his first attempt--and when it works, not only does it cost you significantly less, but there is no court case.
He has free consultations on these, and can often get you in the same afternoon.
