I was getting beat up by my husband for 3 days and had a black eye and had tried to leave with my daughter because he got physical with her. He was throwing me by the neck and slamming me. I grabbed a bread knife with a cover over the blade , he grabbed it and said he would put it in my back. He grabbed it and it broke when he threw me and he got a paper cut type cut on his small finger when it broke. I called the police. He threw me, the phone disconnected 911 called me back and I asked the cops to come, I got arrested because he had a cut on his pinky finger. they said my black eye held no weight because I didn't call when it happened. I am charged with cdv han. will I really get jail time? I have no record what so ever. Lawyers are trying to charge me 10,000, and now I am a single mother. Is it really off to jail?
