On April 21, my girlfriend and I where arguing and I slapped her twice. She called the police and they arrested me... I was bailed out and am now waiting for the court date.
The victim is not interested in pressing charges for assault and we both hope that we could somehow reduce the assault charge into some sort of ""slap on the wrist"" instead of prison time since this is my 1st ""crime"" ever in the US., if dropping the charge is no option. I would also like to have an idea of how the process would usually work and what would be the cost. If possible I would also like to discuss whether the ""crime"" can be erased from my record since I am a Certified Pharmacy Technician and having such a stain as an assault charge on my record means the death of my career.
