My son's baby mother told the police that he threaten her with violence . She also told the police that he tried to hit her but she jumped across the bed to get away from him and sustained a bruise to her arm. I have reasons to believe that this young woman accusations are false . She has discussed the incident with several people and each time the story changes .. I believe it is her revenge because he told her that he cheated with another woman And because he had her arrested because she hit with a broom and busted his car window . this young woman also posted on social media the day before the incident that she was going to meet his PO the next morning and have him put in jail . She's also been harassing the other woman. My son is charged with terroristic threat and simple assault -FV. He was also on probation and is now being held at the county jail .
Your son needs an attorney who specializes in domestic/family violence crimes as soon as possible. It looks like he has some great issues for trial. However, you need to be memorializing as much of this evidence as possible, because alot of it can disappear with time. As far as the probation matter, I don't have great news. Probation violations are held at a much lower standard than reasonable doubt. Being charged with a new crime while on probation, will almost always lead to your probation being revoked. I'm not sure if he is on felony or misdemeanor probation, but you need to hire him an attorney for his probation matter as soon as possible. It is possible that the attorney could convince the probation officer not to go forward on the probation revocation if the evidence is flimsy. Good luck.
I agree with my colleague. Based on the information you provided your son is facing some serious charges. He needs an attorney.
