Not clear what happened here. Did you hire the attorney? What was the reason for the 6 month delay? Did you agree to it. You need to clarify this post.

No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia


You really need to consult with an attorney. You say that you're not guilty, but also admit throwing the glass of water, so it's probably best if you stop posting details online. It sounds like your case will drag on for a long time in its current state. Hire a locally experienced defense attorney and let a professional deal with this for you. Best of luck.

Get an attorney ASAP . Your facts do not jive. Did you go to court with attorney and enter a plea?

You have posted 3-4 questions related to your issue. It is obvious that your situation is gar too complicated to be adequately answered on a public forum like this.

I think it is time to hire (yes, actually pay) a lawyer in your area to help you sort this out.
