Yes. I was disappointed in the attorney because I felt that if he had been more aggressive he could have lowered the final sentence even more but he recommended my husband take the following plea bargain and we were desperate to get back together. My husband was also very concerned about money too.
The DA went down from a menacing charge to a disturbing the peace plea with 36 months bench probation, $1133 in fines and fess with $1000 suspended, 40 hours of community service, counseling and taking an medication recommended by the councilor along with the batterers intervention program.
That was probably more than you asked for but I am really tired of dealing with a program that says that men should not be respected and that children should not be made to obey.
My husband did his community service hours in about 3 weeks I think. He takes an anti-anxiety pill because the councilor diagnosed him with an anxiety disorder and we go together for counseling which has been working wonders on both my husband and our marriage.
My husband just let me know that his conviction was actaully disorderly conduct second degree. Does that change the picture any? Or is the gameplay the same?
