Customer Question
My husband was on...

My husband was on the wrong bipolar medication and has charges on him now for flipping out but we just want to get him the right medical help he needs and not be in jail, I never requested a protection order as this is the first incident that has happened, I am waiting on the prosecution office to re write his release paper stating we cant have contact but I am curious if they are just lying and saying they will do that and I am worried he could go to jail for this situation and not be on his medication that is helping him so much now any advice on this situation?

Lawyer's Assistant: What was he charged with exactly? Are there any upcoming court dates?

I think it's called domestic battery ×2

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did the battery occur?

Havent hears of any court date yet

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

If your husband is suffering from bi-polar, then the prosecutor should have his cased transferred to the mental health court division.

This is a particular division in the court that specifically handles criminal cases that may have arose as a result of someone's mental health condition. The judges in this division are specially trained and steps are usually taken to help treat the individual.

For example, a mental health counselor may be provided, depending on the severity of the situation residential programs may be an option, etc.

You can also let the prosecutor know that you are not willing to testify in the case against him, and that you would like to see the charges dismissed.

The prosecutor will then have to evaluate whether or not they can prove the case without you, and if not, the charges will have to be dismissed.

Yes, the prosecutor does also have the discretion to remove the protective order or modify it.

You can also make that request to the judge yourself at the next court date.

I hope that helps!

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.
