His father sued me with child abuse... am I going to jail or not.. what would I do?
First, you are going to contact Avvo and have them remove this confession. Then you are going to hire an attorney to represent you.
This answer is for general information purposes only. This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship. Since this is a public forum, the information provided is not protected by the attorney-client privilege.
If "His father sued me with child abuse", then the lawsuit has to be in civil court. Usually, there is no jail in civil court.
Perhaps what you mean to write is that the father reported you to the police. If that is what happened, you will be charged with assault and other crimes.
That you were drunk would not be a defense. That "they hit me back with his companions" likely is self-defense for the group after you "punch him in the face".
You should start reviewing the specific facts with your attorney to find out your legal options.
