Did your daughter consult and hired a local criminal defense attorney in AK?
No, she left for NM as soon as released from Jail for one night.
Well, your daughter is facing serious charges and if convicted she can be sentenced to up to 1 year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000
So your daughter will have to appear in court on the court hearing dates and it would be a good idea for your daughter to consult and hire criminal defense attorney in AK.
Does this make sense?
Can she still get a court appointed attouney, or would it be advisable to get one personally?
It would be a good idea for your daughter to hire an experienced private criminal defense attorney, since conviction of domestic violence can also cause your daughter to loss some civil rights.
Since both individuals have left Arkansas, is it possible the judge will be liniant?
It is possible, but will not necessarily true, as crimes of domestic violence are prosecuted very aggressively as a matter of public policy and also most prosecutors are eager to prosecute such crimes.
Do you have any related follow up questions?
Is there any way to get police evidence photos that were taken of my daughter's injuries, none on the other woman>
Your daughter's local attorney will be able to request any evidence during the discovery stage of the criminal case.
