What may I do to prevent him facing jail time? His past offenses are not good he recently got busted for assault & battery on a police officer with a deadly weapon ,PC 245(a)1) he is being charged for 9 counts in total. His court date for PC 245(a)(1) is a day before the DV case, He already went to his arraignment,preliminary hearing& recently had another court date,I'm guessing that his trial?anyways, it's all very complicated& stressing I would really appreciate the advice on what I may do to help my boyfriend that I love very much !Thank you !
Between his record and his current charges he has serious problems.What you can do to help him is make sure he has a good attorney. There is a list of attorneys, including those of us who answer these questions under the Find a Lawyer tab he on AVVO. If he doesn't have an attorney I would suggest that he interview several of the lawyer and choose the one he likes best. If he has an attorney his attorney can answer your question better than we can. I wish him luck and I hope this is helpful.
