Can you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have been thru Police interview and it didnt go very well. My wife has filed 3 charges on me.
1. I grabbed her by the neck and threw her on the ground.
2. I punched her several times in the back.
3. I slapped her in front of our daughter.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Will she give evidence?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
All of them are inaccurate
1. I only pushed her
2. I did not punch her
3. I only tapped on her chinSo what I would like to know , how the trial is going to be. Unfortunately I spoke with her friend and she said , you hit her and I said yes. But I didnt know at the time she is giving this allegation
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can not talk, as I am at my aunt place and they know nothing and everyone is sleeping. It is the same girl who used to stalk me and I ended up marrying her eventually and now I am on the deep end of it. She submitted a picture of punch at the back as well which is dated 3 days later of the incident
