City of Polo patrolman punched in the eye off duty. I chose not to defend myself, or pursue charges and I'm now suspended with pay. What's my options here.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not with the States Attorney far as I knowJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Only thing is I was caught kissing another man's wife but off duty which is why I was punched. I'm also married having problems at home for about 1 year. There's no conduct policy as far as off duty is concerned. I think its also wrong the Alderman that brought this to the attention of the city board is the best friend of the suspect that punched me. So huge conflict of interest here.
My girlfriend texted her ex-husband prior to entering their
My girlfriend texted her ex-husband prior to entering their co-owned property asking that he have her alimony/child support available to pick up. She never entered their home and stayed outside at all times. I was parked in the driveway waiting for her to come back down the outside staircase. I watched her walk down the stairs go under the house, enter into a small wooden gate, shortly afterwards her ex-husband followed going through the same gate. What happened behind the gate, according to her testimony was, she wanted her wooden mermaid wind chime that she got for her birthday, he grabbed her and in defense she struck him with the mermaid. The only thing I saw was him pushing her into a parked golf cart, her trying to fight him off. I proceeded to get out of the car walked towards him asked him to please leave her alone, saying, "you have to let her go". He took a couple steps towards me and punched me in the face, I then bent over and grabbed my face shouting 'you broke my nose'. When I looked up again he was manhandling her again. I again said, leave her alone, this time he, tackled me to the ground. I was on my back he was on top of me, I proceeded to tell him to leave me alone, at that point my girlfriend jumped on his back to get him off me. Long Story short my girlfriend, after calling 911, was arrested for Aggravated Battery with intent to cause bodily harm. According to his testimony she attached him. She ended up in hospital with a messed up hand and a CAT scan after hitting her head on the pavement after being pushed. He refused medical treatment with minor lacerations to his face, this according to the arrest record by the arresting officer.Question: How do they prove aggravated battery if know one saw the first contact?Was she in her rights as a part owner of the house able to enter the property even after the text messages, they are saying she came with no notice?The arresting officer recorded her statement at the hospital, with out letting her know that she was going to be arrested for Aggravated Battery, is this legal?She has had no priors, is one of the least most violent person I know, how bad is this.Oh, we live in florida.

A person is arrested for aggravated battery but needs psychiatric
A person is arrested for aggravated battery but needs psychiatric help for psychiatric issues. Are the chances for obtaining psychiatric treatment better if the charges stay or are dropped? Is it more likely for the person to receive psychiatric evaluation if the patient has charges imposed on them?

In a criminal case, if a case is set to go to trial in 30days. What would drive the state attorney to drop the plea offer( yrs )down significantly. For ex...the first offer was five months prior at 25 followed by 5. Two wks ago, the offer was 15 followed by 5. One week ago, now it's 10yrs(mandatory)
