Not really one to post random things.. but I see people making threads all the time about their lives.. so I figure I'll give it a shot..
so the story: My girlfriend was arrested for assaulting me, during an argument. (she had called the police after) Apparently in Canada, police have to arrest someone in a case of domestic. Whether someone wants them too or not. So anyways.. she was told if she pleads guilty, she would have to go to anger management, but neither of us think that's needed and Duty Counsel told her she should take it to Trial.
I'm assuming, if she takes it to trial, they'll need me to go give my statement and such. (Which I was tricked into by detectives.. I feel pretty stupid about that, as I was informed I had no choice but to give a statement)
I'm just trying to get a basic guide line of what will be the out come, when I don't go to court? if it's needed. I'm in Canada, it'd be my first offense.
I really think jail time would be over re-acting for this. But I'm sure some others may have more experience with the legal system than me.
I read some things on google saying, they'd most likely just toss out the case..
