Maddam, Yesterday I was charged with simple battery. We were

Dear sir/maddam,Yesterday I was charged with simple battery. We were ending a family event in my wife and my home. When my wife's niece came back in to state she had just run over our dog who was laying in our yard. It ended up getting a little heated.I ended up ordering my wife's niece to leave our home. She became argumentative and said it wasn't my house, that it was her aunts. At that point I became angry, grabbed the niece by the shirt, took three steps to the door and put her out of the house.She continued to act like a fool in our front yard and called the police. My wife at no point said the niece could remain in my home. We live in Florida. Do I not have a right to remove someone from my home who doesn't live here, after ordering them to vacate?What are the chances of my being able to beat this charge. I have no record of any violence. My only arrest was several years ago for a DUI. There were no alcohol or drugs involved, and no assault occurred.

I am facing a 3rd degree misdemeanor battery for unwanted

I am facing a 3rd degree misdemeanor sexual battery for unwanted touching of a mentally challenged person in north carolina. She is 24. I have a dance studio she came in with her mother. She diagnosed with social anxiety diorder. I was told later she was also mentally slow although she didnt show this. Everytime I touched her she would pull away or hit my hand. She was my student for 5 months and now claims i touched her breasts. I am from florida and if i am convicted here might move back I cant see any simular laws in florida. It is only assault with no sexual inference. If I am convicted would i have to register in florida?JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: north carolina. about 6 weeks ago police came to my studioand questioned me about unwanted touching of this student. They did not bring charges. However, they filed a no contact order. I got a lawyer and while I was waiting for my case to be heard I was served with a summons in criminal court because their lawyer went to the majestate and he ordered me to criminal court on nov 21. As I said I hope to beat this but if i dont I understand that if you move to a state with different laws you may not have to register. Just wondering about floridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no i think thats it
