I had told my boyfriend to leave my mom's property over 20

I had told my boyfriend to leave my mom's property over 20 times, he shoved me into our daughter when I was 15 weeks pregnant and I defended my daughter, myself and our unborn child. I hit him but was told by the officer that because I told him to leave so many times that I wasn't going to be arrested but to call next time he refuses to leave. Then the same officer turned around and said "change of plans, we are arresting you" even though just 30 seconds before he told me I wasn't getting arrested. He didn't read me my rights at all, not when he patted me down or when I was in the vehicle. About 2 and a half weeks later we got back together and he went to drop the charges. He was told he had to speak to the prosecuting attorney and he sat there waiting for over an hour and a half and then told he didn't have to and just needed to sign a paper. I have the copy but after looking it up the prosecuting attorney has to be talked to and convinced as to why the charges should be dropped. I am now 21 weeks pregnant and we were both given two different dates for court. First I was told the 7/05/17 but the ticket says 7/17/17. The arresting officer called me 2 hours later and said he wrote the wrong date and to write over it as the 5th. His copy says the 17th and writing that neither of us can read. Assuming it says "7/17/17 none charges" I have no prior record, never even been pulled over. But we have 2 kids and a 3rd on the way and I suffer from extreme anxiety and depression. For the last 2 weeks I have been having melt downs because I am scared of being thrown in jail for self Defense and not seeing my kids from 1-4 years and having to deliver this child in jail and not have access to the help I need.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: It's not traffic law. It's domestic assault... missouriJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Get an actual person to respond, I typed out the entire story.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I need to know if I am going to go to jail or if I'm going to get lucky with a slap on the wrist and get probation for a first offense.

In a civil case isn't the written evidence documentation

In a civil case isn't the written evidence documentation supposed to back up the testimonies?JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: Pa Patient was left unattended with no CPR/AED for more than 7 minutes according to AUTOMATED written computer documentation. There were 2 code blue calls made during this time. The testimony ONLY backed up the second code call as if that was the 1st code call appearing that the patient was left unattended for only 3 minutes. The written documentation (the facility's own police department and the ONLY employee present) states that it was more than 7 minutes that the patient was left unattended. Other submitted facility CPR/AED policieS state that it was the employee's job to give CPR until MERT teams arrival. Other facility policieS state that for every minute without CPR the patient's chance of survival decreases 7-10%. This patient also had a 3rd code blue called for him 12 hours previous to these last two code. Patient was left with only the brain stem and died 6 months later after 33 days in hospice with no food, no water.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yes. I believe there was fraud on the court. There was a federal trial with a federal judge overseeing a federal agency. There was no cover up as the court was given all documentation. I do believe their was a conspiracy at trial because the evidence was presented differently than the written documentation. All that testified were included in the suit. I believe there was a conspiracy to manipulate the truth at trialJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: If you looked at ALL of the info I have I believe anyone would come to the same conclusion. I know for a fact that a prominent employee was threatened with his job if he did not testify for the agency. The last witness came to me at court and was crying. He asked my forgiveness. I did not understand why until I had a chance to read all the trial transcripts. I believe he was called in to tidy up the time because with other peoples testimonies you can tell that something was wrong. He made it appear that they responded in sufficient time when in reality they didn't. I believe that my attorney was threatened or bribed, I believe the employees were threatened because it was a systematic problem, and I was told by a prominent attorney that there was MORE than enough evidence for the judge (bench case) to rule in our favor. I asked what his thoughts were why the judge didn't do that and he responded, "Well after all the federal government is his employer" and it was that bad

Maybe - I just learned of this a few days ago. on Missouri's

maybe - I just learned of this a few days ago. on Missouri's Case-Net. It never happened. What did happen is that, after the trial, the attorney and I went to a nearby restaurant, at his suggestion. There were 8 jurors sitting near the door we entered. I smiled at them, gave a slight wave, and took a table on the far side. We had our coffee and departed by another door. That was it.10/05/2007 Docket Entry: Motion FiledText:DEFTS MOTION TO INFORM THE COURT THAT PLTF GUS STURMFELS, JR. IS HARASSING THE JURY ABOUT THEIR VERDICT THIS NEVER HAPPENED. This has to be behind much of what has happened. I just discovered this. NEVER.. Impossible, I would never do this. NEVER. Reasons? Medical. Stupid anyway. BTW- I had many deaths before the trail and after, including my daughter, after six months of treating for leukemia, one of two “rescue” dogs 6 months later. I am now on anti-depression medication. I was robotic, and in some ways, still so.What happened: The next day, after the trial, I got phone call from my attorney to meet him in Division 11. I have no idea where that is, so I went to the courtroom of the previous day.The courtroom was empty except for one person, unknown, sitting near the front. I took a seat near the back.After some time, the defense attorney came into the courtroom via the door, in front, that the judge uses. When he spotted me, he spoke to that person and said “watch out for him,” pointing to me, “he will attempt to look at your papers.” And proceeded out the door in back.A few minutes later he reappeared, with my attorney. Shortly then the judge appeared, and was furious. He accused me of threatening the jury in the above situation. My attorney remained silent. The judge even threatened to jail me, and, according to my senses, if I said anything he would. I remained silent. The judge departed, using the door that the lawyer had used.As we departed, I asked my lawyer about what happened. He mumbled “don't worry about it.” So I did not. But I happened to find this when just looking through the records concerning my recently deceased sister.Maybe I should have gotten jailed, and then gotten a fair hearing.Can anything be done to clear this unfounded verbal assault claim?There were many important factors leading to the jury's verdict. Unbelievable. I made a list, but what to do with it?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Just postedJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not regarding this issue. I just learned of it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The defendant lawyer is known for his tenacity; quote - "...till you bleed to death."
