hello I had a fight with my súper of my apartment that I was living in with my husband and my daughter. I took the owner and the súper to civil court for lack of repairmen-ts. I decided not to wait any longer and moved out of the apartment due to the bad conditions. On the day off they came and attacked me, and my husband came in my defense, I run out looking for help to the closet grocery store, when I saw one of the lady who hit me , my immediate reaction was to hit her because of what she did to my face. However i didn't touch her. But my husband who has mental disorder, looking for me went inside the store thinking that she was still attacking me and he hit the women with a brick. Finally, thats the video the prosecutor have against us. On my behalf we have Pict's of my face and evidence that we took them to housing court and as well evidence of the place in precarious condition. Where it says they were renting the place illegally. Thanks for responds.
I would be recommending seeking a plea deal based upon your description of the events at grocery store. But, your lawyers are in the best position to advise you.

Only an attorney fully familiar with all the facts in your case should be giving you advice on what do to. No one on this site has seen the video or knows why your husband thought she was still attacking you if she wasn’t. If there was no current attack, it doesn’t sound like a valid justification defense despite the past incidents.
