So here I sit faceing a domestic violence and the DA won’t budge on removing it. Looks like we are going to trial. But my lawyer had an idea. My wife and son already made statements that they would have to back track on. He says they are gonna ask are you lying now or were you then. It would be hard to get the jury to believe them back tracking.
He said we could offer a plea deal where I would admit to being loud and boisterous but not to being abusive or violent. And still have the domestic charges against me but not to abuse or violence.
He said then I would possibly be able to still own and buy guns because there would be no admission to violence or abuse on the charge even though the domestic violence charge was still on record.
Your thoughts @herrubermensch or anyone else knowledgeable in this.
