My husband was mad, took all $$ from bank and was ready to leave so I hurt my self, my husband has been mentally abusive before this, he never liked my friends, habits, nor had friends, he would cut me and everyone down. He was arrested for domestic violence cutting me with a razor box opener. While he was gone, I had to call the local PD on another situation and (id theft on me) and the one PD comes in, does not write any of my id theft problem down nor seem to care. I then told the PD also that my husband had left a gun in the garage so I gave the PD the gun and ammo as in 'good faith' and the PD called another cop in and he started to search my home finding pills, took my pulse and had me count to 30 seconds as a drug test, he found some plastic bags in my home (remember no warrant) and handcuffed me for gun, ammo, possession and under influence and i go to jail for 72 hrs and see no judge and was told to call once a month to find out if the DA is going to prosecute me is what the inmates told me, yet when released it stated that it was a detainment and not an arrest. And I was released pursuant to Paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Penal Code section 849 OR pARAGRAPH (3) OF SUBDIVISION (B) OR Paragraph (3) of subdivision (b) of PC 849. Charges where listed 29800A, 30305, 11377, 11350, This was the only paperwork given and the paperwork did not say I had to make a call once a month for the next 3 years to see if i had a warrant, so what was this paper they gave me really???? there was again no search warrant, there was no urine or blood test they could use against me and the Gun was turned over to PD because I don't have a good record and b) it stated on the restraining order all guns have to be turned over and i did my civic duty I thought. I told the PD while in my house that I was still sorting my clothes and things from his and after my husband left i was throwing away bags of this drug down the toilet before they got there and i hadn't finished clearing my house, (the house is only under my name). So I get these 4 charges suppossedly, so A) what is "taking into custody ,was a detention only, not an arrest" really mean. I had a prior record and I told the PD to take the gun away and bullets and I get charged for it and everything else. We went to court 7/16 on domestic violence and i was trying to get the charges dropped on my husband but the courts passed the domestic violence charge 3 yrs meaning he can't be with me, (My husband has an perfect record as he has no records) my husband has to face criminal charges on August 18th. How can I make this all go away could you please advise what to do? I was given an FL-300 form what do i really do in this matter it's gotten way too big and I don't want to face lying charges or is there a way i can ask the judge to 'drop the order and that i no longer want to press charges? HELP PLEASE ADVISE ON THIS MESS. WHAT CHARGES WILL MY HUSBAND FACE WHEN HE GOES TO COURT 8/18, DOES HE HAVE TO WAIT 3 YRS TO BE WITH ME AGAIN AND WHAT REMEDIES CAN WE USE TO FIX ANY OF THIS....PLEASE ADVISE.
ALSO PLEASE LET ME KNOW ON THE 4 CHARGES ARE THEY LEGIT, AND WHAT DO I DO???
