My husband and I have had mutual physical altercations in the past where we fought equally as hard. He admits to being sadistic. Has been rough with the baby etc.
We recently had a fight where his computer took damage and we both took physical damage. Even though we were both had marks on us I was arrested for being the main aggressor because he had more scratches and his property was damaged.. This is my first offense. The charges are misdemeanors. Husband doesn't want charges pressed. He wants everything dropped. I am in a position where I need to take our baby to Iowa (there are no custody issues with this). What is likely going to happen in court? What do I need to do? I cannot afford any form of an attorney. I've never been arrested before. I don't want to do something wrong etc..
