Hello and thank you in advance. A few months ago, I was arrested on a dwi. I was at a party where the home owner gave me a few drinks. The home owner, a friend, who was very intoxicated became angry and assaulted me as well as my car (kicking it, and choking me) and telling ME to leave and NOT letting me out of the car. Someone in the house called the police and told them that I WAS the person who was causing the trouble (which I WAS NOT). The police arrived withing minutes of me leaving the driveway, and pulled me over and arrested ME! I told them I had just been assaulted, and they told me they would "get to that", but they never did. I am a 42 yr old woman (no prior arrests of any kind) and my attacker is a man who was out of control. I don't want to plead guilty. Any thoughts? In Ma.

I met with attorney and signed contract. I agreed to pay one thousand before next court date 8/28/13. I do not have it because I had to move so I could keep job. I could afford weekly payments. The problem is I can't afford to lose and pay. I am moving out of state in January. I don't want to go to jail and I don't want, need or can afford rehab. I can live without license. I am wondering am I allowed to talk to Prosecutor? I do feel I have a chance to win but not confident with attorney, who has not even returned phone calls and petrified to lose and still owe fees. I understand I did this to myself but is there any chance I can just lose license, get fines but not have to go to jail or rehab? I am so scared and don't know who to talk too?
You should try to hire another lawyer with whom you can make better payment arrangements and whom you trust.
