Isn't it true that if you have ever been charged with similar charges ( assault), which all of mine are, They can bring them back up and use them against you and up your charge to a felony? I pled guilty to all of the previous charges and did a plea of abeyance. That is how they got dismissed. Isn't that different? Im terrified of going to jail.
so many things are wrong with this case. I wanted this kid out of MY house for breaking my stuff. He didn't even live here. I screamed and cursed him out to leave my house and I get the cops called on me. This kid is a year older than me has two kids and was homeless and unemployed. one of my roommates lovers. He got kicked out of his mom's house. A winner, I know. I, on the other hand, work 45 hours a week. Im in the insurance industry. I am about to begin classes to become a broker and this kid is a recovering junkie. It doesn't seem right. Can anyone fabricate a story of assault, claim they were hurt and get their friends to vouch for them- then get away with it? I had to find out there was a warrant through random lawyer letters to my mailbox. Then go and turn myself in and post bail.
