Cotati, California. My name is Jonathan Arnold, age 23, and i have a 19 year old, female ex tenant that is pressing charges against me. i came home one day and she was drunk, after 45 minutes of verbal assault, in the witness of three others, she physically assaulted me, in the presence of one other roommate. we were not romantically involved. i called the cops on her immediately after my roommate detained her and after being pulled into the car by the cops she told them i bought her the alcohol and i now have a citation for this. as this has gone on i have been told she has now decided to press charges further against me saying i assaulted her. i did not and have not ever boughten her alcohol or hit her. i need legal advice! along with the charges she is pressing against me she still owes me two months rent as well. i need help please...but cannot afford the full value of a laywer to ensure i do not get charged and penalized and get my owed rent. i have a court date on march 3 for the alcohol charge.
