This is an extremely serious charge. As a second degree felony, there is a much higher likelihood of prison as a reasonable sentence. It is a defense if an action was unintentional but that will likely depend on the very specific facts of your case. I’m concerned about what your cooperation with the police entailed. Often times the things a defendant says get twisted by the police to prove guilt. Even if your ex decides she doesn’t want you prosecuted, the decision rests with the prosecutor who may try and force her cooperation. Do yourself a favor and hire a defense attorney.
