Hello, The only thing that you can do is to hire an attorney and fight the charges. You're the defendant, and though you may not have done anything wrong, unfortunately, the complainant says otherwise and the state is standing behind him or her. Yes, if this has only just transpired, there isn't anything a lawyer can do either. In a week or two, maybe sooner, your case will be in the system and a prosecutor will be assigned to it. At that point your lawyer can talk to the prosecutor and see if it can be dismissed or, failing that, can negotiate for a disposition that will allow for you to come out of this case without a criminal record. I'm sure you have told your lawyer already that you cannot afford a criminal conviction. If he can not convince the prosecutor to dismiss the case outright, this is just a harassment
charge and there are no injuries, it's very likely your lawyer will be able to get you a diversion or deferral opportunity if you wanted to resolve this case with a plea rather than a trial. These are special non-incarceratory programs where you stay out of trouble with the law, take some anger management classes, pay some fines and at the end, your case will be dismissed. Typically, however, because of the fact that domestic violence
is so much in the public limelight, even if the complainant him or herself wanted to try to drop charges, the state would not do it right now. You're lawyer is right. You're going to have to wait a bit until this case is assigned to a specific prosecutor and judge.
