On a Friday night I got a call from Friends of my ex boyfriends we were together at the time he was so intoxicated he couldn't tell them how to get home I met them I picked him up I brought him home. within about 30 minutes he worked himself up and he started swearing , hitting,choking me .Verbally abusing, he went to jail they were going to try to charge him with a felony now they're dropping it to 4th degree assault domestic violence however he has a record and he might still be on probation and he has a breathalyzer on his car so what are his possible charges in Washington State? Now I am with two kids and homeless because of this I just moved in there 6 months ago had my own home before that never had a problem with meant we were just given a notice to have her power shut off this last Tuesday he keeps drinking and won't stop what will they do to him?
If convicted he could face jail time. Best course of action for your ex would be to retain competent legal counsel to assist in presenting a defense to the charges.
He needs an attorney. Does he have a criminal defense attorney? He can be appointed one by the court if he can't afford a private attorney. The court will have him fill out a questionaire to see if he is eligible for the appointment of any attorney. If not, he will have to hire one. Please, he needs an attorney that is the best advise I can give right now.
