I have been charged with Assault 266 and Utter Threat first

Customer Question

Hello I have been charged with Assault 266 and Utter Threat for the first time but my intentions were merely reflex
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I went to my ex-fiancé's house yesterday and my intention was to pick up the rest of my things from his house. My anger got the best of me and instead of saying I need my stuff back I attempted to slap his face. He stopped me however and I was shaking and I could not let go of his arm. We had a few exchange of words and he agitated me and I punched his stomach but not enough to make him gasp of heave. We had more exchange of words (non-threatening on my part). That evening a police officer came to my house and served me with papers and a court date.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $39 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello, thank you for the question.

Were there any witnesses to this event?

When is your court date?

Do you have a criminal record?

I'm still here if you want to discuss your criminal law matter. Or perhaps you've got a lawyer of your own by now?
