Customer Question
my husband's son was incarcerated...
my husband's son was incarcerated over this past weekend on domestic violent charges. He was released on his own recognizant. He had a court appearance yesterday where he plead not guilty and his next court appearance is February 16th. He doesn't have any priors and nothing on his record. is it possible that the charges can be dropped? We plan on getting an attorney but what can we do to plan for this next court appearance? What are we potentially faced with?

his age is 28, the alleged victim is his wife. they had been drinking and ended up at a friends house. They were playing around and she didn't like it. She bit him and then he pushed her, she slugged him in the head which left a gash/blood and then he shoved her. He left and walked to their home( two doors down). she came a few minutes later and they started arguiing, she said that she wanted a divorce and was going to take their little girl and go. he said no, it's raining out and you are not taking our daughter anywhere.
