Hi! I'm Heather. I've been a practicing attorney for the last 15 years, and I'd be happy to assist you for informational and educational purposes.
You won't be able to speak to the judge at the bail hearing. You should probably figure out who the prosecutor is before the hearing, and see if he will speak to you and state that you are the victim and that you were not assaulted, and ask if he is willing to dismiss the case. If your boyfriend was just acting to protect you from hurting yourself, then that wouldn't be an assault. So find the prosecutor and talk to him.
Does that help?
You can go to court the day of the hearing, and the prosecutor will be the man or woman who is the attorney sitting at the table speaking to the judge about the cases, and he or she will be the attorney who speaks for the state on your boyfriend's case. Watch and see who that is, and try to talk to him or her when court is over.
