    Default Domestic Violence

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Mississippi

    I have a clean record and am going to court in a month for domestic violence charges from the state.

    What happened: I pushed my mother down instinctively on accident, she called the cops to have a cop escort me out (I was intoxicated) but was unaware that as soon as she mentioned I pushed her down they had to arrest me by law, even though she begged the officer not to arrest me and stated several times "I just want him to leave safely thats all"

    Information:

    - Nothing like this has ever happened before.

    - My mother will be confirming to the judge that any form of violence, screaming, hostility, name calling, or even raising my voice to another person is way out of my character.

    - I own two .com businesses (Employment information)

    - I've taken responsibility for my actions, learned from it, and corrected myself mentally to make sure nothing like this happens again.

    - I'm pleading no contest.

    I've also researched some documented cases in the state of mississippi where men have beat their wives, stole their money, and walked out of the house and had the charges dropped because their wife requested it or because the judge found that both him and her were being violent to each other. Other cases where actual hitting and screaming and violent behavior too with people who have a past criminal record - and they got the charges dropped.

    My questions are these:

    1) How do I request the charges be dropped? Do I simply state "Yes sir I would like these charges dropped" or do I fill out a request form or what? I read online about requesting charges be dropped from a lawyer or wife. I'm not going to have a lawyer or jury, just a judge.

    2) Any advice?

    Let's start with your statement above.

    What does that mean?

    It means I made the mistake of drinking more than I can handle and failed to think before I acted after I was smacked in the face and pushed her instinctively. It's my fault, and I'll be telling that to the judge and also noting that I've used several self-training techniques to mentally correct myself.

    I've also already purchased a book on managing anger and assertiveness plus started to participate in an anger management group discussion on the internet and research everything I can find on anger, managing it, how it works, ect.
