Thank you for your answer & your help. So the guy who did this was my ex boyfriend who was charged with second degree sexual assault,,,it sounds like they want a plea agreement but i am kind of worried this will make it so he gets away with it. At the same time I don't want it to go to trial either because I don't think I could handle it. Would you be able to tell me what a usual plea agreement would be like in a case like this? I am still afraid of him & just want to be able to feel safe for a long time as this involved injuries
10 yrs would still be a long time, i am hoping the fact he was my boyfriend doesn't effect it..Thank you for your help
