I filed charges against my husband for domestic battery. What I'm wanting to know is if it would be a bad idea to drop the charges IF he agrees to take some type of counseling that my medical insurance would pay for. I don't want the family hurt anymore and even though we're not going to remain married, I want him to get help for his anger.The dv charge my husband is facing is Domestic Battery 3rd (misdemeanor). He's arreignment is Monday. The prosecuting attorney told me that if he plees not guilty, they will schedule a date for trial, but if he pleas guilty; they would schedule a date for sentencing. Would it be a better idea simply to plee my request to the judge on the day of sentencing.
