My ex-husband has a SEVERE drug issue. He kicked in my door & choked me several times. He was charged with strangulation but I've agreed to let them offer a plea agreement that will reduce his charges to a misdemeanor if he gets help. He's been in jail since middle of July. Is there a chance he will be released
It depends what the terms of the plea agreement are. If the agreed upon sentence involves alternative placement or probation, then yes, there is a chance he will be released.
