I found out my soon to be ex was cheating on me. He showed me messages to other girls and laughed about it. He then told me I was pathetic and I should kill myself. I slapped him, then he punched me in the face with a closed fist. This resulted in...
Whether an action is self-defense is for a jury to decide. The force used must be "reasonable." Mutual combat is also another common defense in situations like this. You should also have been arrested for assault as well.See question

Hello , My license was suspended for 90 days(Jan - Apr 2016) last year due to my first DUI. I was eligible to reinstate my license after that but have to install IID for one year (until Apr - 2017). Since I chose not to drive and didn't own a ...
I agree with Mr. McWethy. Both statements are true. Your requirement is up after a year AND you have to have 4 months compliance before removing the device. I believe the 4 month requirement will trump the reinstatement date.See question
I am contesting a traffic citation relating to a minor accident that I was involved in. Not only did I not do what the responding officer claimed I did and I have some evidence that points to that, but various factors left virtually no physical or...
Cases are not dismissed at prehearing conference for "lack of evidence." The prosecutor will not be present and has a right to be present and respond to any argument you make regarding the case. In my opinion, the prehearing conference should be waived unless you are asking for a deferred finding or mitigation.See question
Do I need an attorney? What are the statistics they grant something like this? Is it easy to do without an attorney? Thanks!
You probably do need an attorney to apply for "rehabilitation." I've changed the practice area to immigration so that you can get responses from attorneys that actually do immigration law.See question

I think your question is "Is it a crime to refuse to talk to the police?" No, you don't have to participate in an investigation of someone else and you cannot be forced to give evidence against yourself. That doesn't mean the police won't try to scare you into cooperating. It is your Constitutional Right to remain silent. You also have the right to an attorney. If you are contacted tell the police you are demanding an attorney and say nothing else.See question
On a freeway on ramp I had a slow speed, ( near 15-20 MPH ) forced accident intentionally caused by a angry driver in revenge for me tailgating him. He slowed down, turned side to side to try to block me from passing, then suddenly he hit his brak...
(1) There is a witness. The other guy. I understand it is your word against his, but that is often the case.
(2) A witness statement is usually enough for probable cause to arrest. Is it enough for a conviction? Maybe.
(3) You hired an attorney? Do you not trust that person? If not, you should consider hiring someone you trust. If you do trust him or her then this is a conversation you should be having with your attorney.
(4) You just posted facts that could be used against you in court to get a conviction. You have attorney-client privilege with the attorney you hired. You don't have that same protection on a public forum on the internet.See question

If you have a court appointed attorney you can ask the court for different counsel. In some cases the court will assign you different counsel. If not you are free to hire anyone you want. You can also represent yourself. However you will be held to the same standards as an attorney. Unless you have a firm grasp on the court rules and the rules of evidence it is not a good idea.See question
Assault and domestic violence dismissed with prejustice does that mean but I still can't buy a pistol
Dismissed with prejudice means there is no conviction and the case cannot be filed again. If you have no convictions or dismissals due to insanity plea then there should be nothing impeding any of you civil rights.See question
