I was pulled in by a police officer after getting in an arguement with my girlfriend. She told them I put my hands on her neck and threatened her. I thought that sounded somewhat what happened and they arrested me on the spot. I spent 3 days in jail and now i have pretrial hearing in feb, I want to know what i plan on facing. We have a child together and this is my first offense and she will be there bc she was not in fear of me and i am not this kind of person and this is a first offense. I want to know what i am facing, more jail time? a fine? she and i are doing counseling and everything. we dont have much money so i dont know if i should have attorney that costs 2500 dollars.
