My question involves criminal law for the state of: california
I was arrested for DV recently - I am going to court tomorow. My boyfriend talked to the DA today and they said that they would try to get the DV charge reduced to a simple battery charge. From the looks of it- aren't the same in severity? Are they both 3 years probation? Dont they both look equally bad on your record?
oh- also this is a misdemeanor charge BTW
