My son was just picked up on a battery charge for fighting…

Customer Question
My son was just...

My son was just picked up on a battery charge for fighting and goes before the Judge in 6-7 hours. What can I expect at that hearing, and at what point should I get a lawyer? Also, what type of bond is posted for such cases in Missouri?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

St Louis, MO

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

All I know at this point is he had an argument with his girlfriend that turned physical and he's in jail waiting to go before a judge.

I withdraw my question, and since no representation was given, you may keep the $5 "good faith" deposit, and refund the rest. Thanks

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
