My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
My fiance and I got into an altercation last weekend, and I was arrested for
domestic battery with a no contact order for 30 days. I was guilty and spent 2 days is jail. It is a misdemeanor and I am on SOR until Oct. 24th when I go for an arraignment.
I lost my job over this ordeal but would really like to go home for the holidays.
Do I need an attorney?? What is the maximum penalty I face?
I had a felony and misdemeanor back in 1989 due to drugs but have been clean and sober since. This was totally unlike me and think I acted out under stress, etc. No excuse!!
