What is the best course and consequences of a domestic violence and harassment charge?

Longmont, CO |

My husband tried to throw me out of the house when we were fighting. He did life me up. I struggled against him and he stopped. I know, in fact, he just wanted me to go out and calm down. The police charges him domestic violence and harassment. He already had two records at the police from his previous marriage, but no records at the court. In that case, what is the best course for him? Should him plead guilty or not? What will be the possible consequences of the charge?
