Assault: An acquaintance dropped me off at home after drinking. I was drunk and hit him once in the jaw.
GBI: He was knocked out and hit his head on the cement. He was admitted to hospital for 3 days. fractured jaw and ear bone. Observation for concussion. Medical bill $60000
Post: Victim is fine now..but I am facing criminal charges. DA is asking for 5 years in penitentiary.
Isnt that a bit excessive?..Even with a plea goes down to 2 years maybe..I know assault cases where someone beat someone with a metal pipe and got 6 months. A close friend killed passenger while DUI served 5 years. I hit someone once and DA seems to be hunting for 1 year minimum?
Is this a ploy? How serious are they? What do i need to mitigate the DA's seemingly hardline stance?
