My bf and I got into an intoxicated fight, he is facing 2 attempted murder charges and my statement does not reflect whole truth
My bf did something to make me upset, we had been drinking and I snapped and was the first aggressor. In restraining me he grabbed my throat, I lost my balance and hit my head knocking me unconscious. I attacked him again and once more he grabbed my throat. In my statement it was not revealed how I attacked him twice, I used the wrong word "choking" which got him attempted murder charges. Also, some things in the report were not true that I do not recall saying at all, incriminating him even more. These charges against him are unfair, we are both at fault and I need to fix this. What is the best route to clear this up. The prosecutor has photos, he has priors, making this a strong case, but I was out of control and am to blame as well
If there were no other witnesses, you can invoke your 5th Amendment right against incriminating yourself. The DA wont...
I was arrested for SUI in Massachusetts .
I was arrested for OW in Massachusetts by a state trooper . I was not driving . I was parked trying to install my FPS . I m 47 years old , 5 feet 11 " and I weight 270 . In my opinion I am overweight by over 50 pounds and the field test should have never been asked . I performed and failed . Actually , if you ask me for it right now I would fail it . During my motion hearing , I feel my attorney failed to insist on the matter that I was over 50 LBS overweight . Should I consider to ask my attorney to request that the judge amend the fact that I was overweight ? It is true that we have not yet received judge's decision . . . but should we act before judge's decision ? Can my attorney request for another motion hearing ? ? ? or amend anything ? Thank
You did not specify what the motion was for, but I am sure your weight was not relevant.
