Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I'm happy to try and help. In most domestic violence cases, (based on my experience), jail is not common unless there are serious bodily injuries involved or multiple occurrences. The logic is that couples will argue and the state should not intervene, however, there is a public safely concern that arguments do not escalate to major fights. I'd consult an attorney just to be on the safe side, but I'm pretty comfortable in telling you that you PROBABLY won't have any jail time and that the charges may be dropped in total when all is said and done. Again, this is speculation on my part and the control lies in the prosecutor's hands, but I'd be pretty surprised if jail was an issue here for you.
best of luck!
