Legal Question

Asked on: 8/31/13, 5:58 pm

Me and my boyfriend got into a fight. He hit me first and so I hit him back and we started a physical altercation. After about a 1 minuet I threatened to call the police and press charges and he stopped. He then called the police and they came and talked to both of us. He lied to the police and said I had hit him first. After the incident I was so nervous and shaken up that my words coming out when I was trying to explain what happened to the officer were broken and so the cop took that as being untruthful. We were both arrested and locked up for 24hrs with no phone call and our rights were not read to me. Its says in the police report that the arresting officer gave us a pamphlet on our rights but neither of us received this pamphlet. What should I do? Whats the possible outcome of going to trial?
