He pled it down to breach of peace without fighting. The deal was 8months and he was to have no arrests, go to anger therapy. He never went to therapy and before the time was up he was arrested in another state and charged with kidnapping, strangulation and assault with a deadly weapon. They held him on high bond and he never made his way back to court for the final hearing on the first arrest. After a year they dismissed the 2nd case without prejudice (a witness issue I think) and so it sits now. He has a warrant out for his arrest in teh first state for not showing and that state prosectuor knows about the other arrest. I know he needs a lawyer, I urged him to go take care of it but he says as long as he does not show up in that state it won't be a problem. I don't agree.on the first charge in the other state it says DOMESTIC BATTERY - 1ST OFFENSE ADJUDICATION STAYED - He hurt his preggo girl and her 18 yr old son- but they dropped the charge against him for the girl because she didn't show for court. My bro has a problem. My wife says upcoming custody case in a 2weeks with a warrant on the first charge and history of violence he will be lucky to get supervised visits. He CANNOT AFFORD a lawyer, he keeps telling the courts he never hurt nobodynot true tho. i want him to come clean, he did it to his first girl, she got 3 prot. orders he broke, he has broken the 2 year this girl has includes their kids, stalking her and I am afraid he is gonna be back in jail. I love my bro and want him to see his kids and I want to see my neices too, but the girl won't talk to any family. What should he do? Will he get custody in 2 weeks?? If he is lying to the judges about never being arrested or hurting anyone and she has the photos/records what will happen?
