Hello, My girlfriend was recently arrested for fighting with her pregnant sister. The criminal charge is aggravated assault and battery on a pregnant woman. This is her first ever offense, the state is Massachusetts, and her sister is not pressing charges. She has been given a state appointed attorney. What is the most likely outcome of this case for her? Is it accurate to believe that she will not serve jail time? Thank you.
