Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Were you arrested or cited by the sheriff?
If so, what were you cited for?
Were you out in the county or were you in city limits?
Ok, then this is purely a subjective call as to whether you were reckless or not, especially if there were no witnesses other than the neighbor, if he even saw you discharge the gun.
With that said, it never hurts to plead not guilty to a charge and then talk to an attorney about it. It doesn't mean that you couldn't later change your plea if you didn't think you could beat the charge after you talked to an attorney about it.
Ok, then it sounds like you would have grounds to challenge to charge and fight it. So if you wanted to do so, you can plead not guilty at your first appearance and then talk to a local criminal defense attorney about how to go about defending against the charge.
I am sorry, but I can’t engage in a private one on one phone call as that could imply an attorney-client relationship which I am prohibited from entering into under my independent contractor agreement with JustAnswer.
If you prefer, I can opt out of the question and open it up to other experts who might be able to assist..
