My husband was arrested for domestic and 5th degree assault against me . The per - trail is next week . The prosecutor is offering 12 weeks of anger management for him and 18 months of circle sentencing for the two of us to complete together . He would like to apply for citizenship but we don't know how he should plea so he doesn't have too many complications in gaining his citizenship . They were also talking about dismissing the charges once he completes the classes and circle sentencing . How does that effect gaining citizenship ? Last option was also to have the charges dropped down to a misconduct vs . the assault . Which would be better ? - - He is a good man deep down and I feel these programs will help him to get rid of his anger tenancies . Thank you for any help you can provide ! !
