If a Conviction, no. You should have known this prior to pleading to a crime worse than many Felonies. But check your final disposition on the Warrant/Judgment. Consult with a competent attorney, not like the one you had, and find out about legal weapons.
If no Arrest Warrant nor Indictment is issued, then no criminal charge is ever made. Incident Reports for the various LEO agencies may stay on file at the department forever. The Report is not a criminal charge itself. The alleged offender is never charged with an offense.
I called the police to supervise while I got my stuff and left after a fight with my boyfriend. I failed to mention the part where I attacked him verbally and threw something at him. He choked me for a few seconds and there were scratch marks. I also had a black eye from his elbow. I said it had... Read more »

It should be charged as Assault or Aggravated Assault. But very often LEO's want to charge for the most serious misdemeanor there is, Domestic Assault. Anyone charged with that should demand a Preliminary Hearing, and if bound over, start looking for Diversion.
The daughter later decides to not prosecute the defendant (her mother), but once she gets to the court to waive prosecution she is informed that the State has picked up the charge for no other reason but cruel and unusual punishment.
If this legal in general sessions court of Tennessee?
It is always the State's Case, not the victim's. The Mother may get indicted, unless she has already plead guilty. The victim will be subpoenaed to the Grand Jury. If her allegations were false, she should hire an attorney for advice.

Hire a competent attorney. You will need to work out some type of Diversion, Dismissal and Expungement. Domestic Assault is worse than some Felonies. Do not get in any more trouble. Prepare for your Preliminary Hearing now.

Hire a competent attorney to represent you. That charge is worse than many Felonies. Do not make any more statements on a public forum or to LEOs. Do not contact the alleged Victim in any manner. Hopefully it will be Dismissed or Diverted, then
That is not a per se ethical conflict. But if he has provided legal advice to you, then you want to ask him to recuse himself (and all information about you). I would be most worried about him using information he knows about you to collect a Judgment. The lawyer is treading on dangerous...Read more »
