I have been charged with domestic abuse/assault and Child

I have been charged with domestic abuse/assault and Child abuse by injury. It is false. I am obtaining a polygraph within a week. I live in a very small town. I am not from there. My wife's childhood best friend is the assistant DA over domestic issues and they want to throw me under the bus. It is actually my wife who is guilty but she called the police to protect herself and said it was me. My daughter was accidently struck by my wife when she attempted to pull us apart from a struggle over my laptop which she was trying to break out of anger. My wife was also punching me at the same time. I never hit her. I want to get the "true" story out to the public. We have employees who will testify that she has admitted to hitting me in the past and never accusing me of the same. At least one is also going to testify that 2-3 days after the incident she stated she might have been incorrect and may have actually hit me first. I want to get the "truth" out and post all of this info to include the polygraph on commercially sponsored facebook posts. I own a business and am savvy on this type of advertisement. I know I can get this info out to at least 1/4th of the county in a matter of days. I'm hoping public opinion will matter. We own a medical clinic and both of us are Nurse Practitioners. I need help bad. Is there anything illegal in doing this or do you see it as a negative action to take?

Last question, reading today's local newspaper, the Judge

Last question, reading today's local newspaper, the Judge ruled that because the defendant had been provided 5 and had fired 5 Court Appointed Attorneys, and that the last attorney was brought in from another Judicial District, he had no alternative but to allow the defendant to represent himself. He is allowing original Attorney, He was hired by defendant and because the key witness was defendants son, who was 11 at the time and because His Maternal mother could not be located was considered a Child In Need of Care, was not being allowed to testify by the Guardian Ad Litem. The Judge and Attorneys all agreed to allow the 11 year olds attorney to ask the boy if he was called to testify in Court would his testimony help or Hinder the defendants case. The 11 year old testified that it would hinder his dads case at which time original attorney and Defendant agreed to accept the plea deal of 2nd degree Murder and Child abuse. At sentencing the defendant decided to withdraw His plea and after consulting with His Client the attorney said he was withdrawing because the defendant was not thinking in best interest of all involved. Judge would not allow defendant to withdraw Plea and in January the KS Supreme Court issued that the defendant should be allowed Counsel before deciding whether to withdraw or not. Now 5 Court appointed attorneys later the defendant is still asking for legal counsel. Is he entitled another attorney and what will it do if not, will he be able to appeal again

This is an URGENT question criminalistic lawyer in Miami.

This is an URGENT question for a criminalistic lawyer in Miami. Yesterday at about 6 PM I found my wife unconsiuous in the bedroom. I called 911 to get urgent medical support, but who came was the police first. After I said there was no known by me reason for that to happen, they asked what had happened during the whole . I said, everything was normal except a discussion with me and my stepdaughter at around 3:30 PM. They asked for the record of the cameras and found that my wife have discussion with me in which she touched my check. Then, my step daughter came and put herself between us and have a kind of hands minor hits with her mom. I told the police no body was hurt, there was not intended aggression, but they decided, against my will, to take my wife to jail accusing he of "domestic battery" and 'child abuse". Today a judge is going to decide how much bail (bond?) will he impose to let her go before the appealing in court. I wanted to talk to the judge before he reads the blames. What should I do to get his attention to me? if that happen, what should I say to him? My wife has never been involved in any domestic battery of child abuse; she does not have any antecedent, she is not aggressive at all and a calm person instead; I do not want she to get her records damaged for this absurd incident. What can I do?

My son is incarcerated on homicide by child abuse charge.The

My son is incarcerated on homicide by child abuse charge.The child's death was not reported immediately to authorities, so when the body was found it was in a decomposed state. At trial the cause of death was never conclusively proven. The state presented an expert who testified that her opinion on the cause of death is that the child died from repeated head injuries. She testified that she based this opinion off of my son's codefendant statements. (other words she stated that by my son's codefendant implicating him of striking the child, this is how the child died.) But on the autopsy there's no physical evidence of prior abuse. On cross examination the state's expert was forced to admit that if the codefendant's statements were inaccurate what would that do to her opinion. She stated that if the statements were inaccurate then her opinion would be totally wrong!! My question is can a medical expert base their opinion on cause of death based off someone's statement? Is this acceptable in the courts?
