We are in criminal court with this . He continues to plead not guilty he knows if he takes plea he gets no jail time , counseling and I continue to have my order of protection . But he refuses to say he is guilty despite the witnesses , his past DV case with another woman and his other criminal violations . What is he up to or what does he know will happen if he goes to trial by jury . MY ADA has no answers for me . I am afraid for my family . Can the jury find him not guilty or drop the case or what will happen if he doesn't show up will they call a mistrial and I loose my order . He didn't bloody me up just some bruising and I couldn't move my arm for a while . He attacked me twice . I just want to be prepared because obviously he knows something I don't but we need to be protected from him .
