My husband was arrested a couple weeks ago of domestic violence against me. This is his second time being charged with this. I do not feel that prision time needs to be his punishment due to the fact that we have a lot of history together and we plus i live with his family and this is becoming a problem. At the time of the incident, i was very upset with him and a lot of things were said which made me not think. learly about the situation after he had hit me so i called the police and his mother and I wrote a statement. Is there any way I can have the charges dropped without having to go through an attorney or will i need one?
