Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.

.

If she got in a physical fight with sister, then daughter will likely be charged with a Class C misdemeanor assault if there were no injuries.. This can result in fines up to $500.

.

Class C Misdemeanor Assault: If someone physically touches someone in an offensive or provocative manner or threatens harm or injury but no physical injury occurs, an assault may be a Class C misdemeanor.

Is she going to stay in jail? Can they order her to go to rehab because of her drinking?
Criminal Lawyer: Barrister, Criminal Defense Law replied 7 months ago

There is no way for me to know if she will stay in jail.. If she posts bond, then she gets out.. If not, she may remain there until her court date and the charge is disposed of..

.

As part of any plea deal they have the ability to require her to go to alcohol classes, but they can't force someone to go to rehab as that is their own personal decision.

.

thanks
