    Default Defenses to Disorderly Conduct, Domestic

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: WI

    My husband and I were having an argument. He held me back, attempted to stop me from leaving a room, let me go, then later ended up punching a door. He knocked over a painting and then I left the house. A neighbor overheard, saw me in the car around the corner just cooling off, came over, and called the police. I was on my way to work when the police came, asked me to come back to verify that I was all right. I thought I had to come back to clear him so they knew I was fine. When I came back I explained what happened. They THEN informed me that I was giving a statement and that he was being arrested because I had corroborated what he had just said.

    Now he is being charged with disorderly conduct. This is a first offense. Any ideas for how we can get this to not show up on his record?

    Should we get an attorney? This was an isolated incident and I am sorry I ever let anyone else get involved.

    Of course you should get an attorney. Representing yourself in court is rarely a good idea.

    Your attorney will be able to sort out your husband's options.
