I assume you are asking if he can get rehab instead of probation, suspended time, or jail time. It will all depend on your husbands criminal history and negotiations with the prosecuting attorney's office. But, it can be a part of an offer that the prosecution makes in your husbands case.

A domestic battery 3rd degree charge is a Misdameanor meaning there is a possibility of up to 1 year in jail and a fine of up $2,500. That does not mean that he will go to jail for a year, but it is a possiblity.

If your spouse is a felon then he/she cannot have a weapon in the home. He/she could easily be charged with a PFBCP if the parole officer comes to do a check/search at the home. If your spouse has any questions then he/she should direct them to the parole officer.
My son is in jail because they issued three warrants for criminal trespassing against him. He was never told or anything was never posted telling him this. The police said they don't have to inform you of it. Then how is it fair, if you didn't know?
They do not have to inform you that there are arrest warrants out for an individual. Typically, most people find out about warrants when they get pulled over for a traffic violation. It is unfortunate.
Someone threatened me and then I slapped them and then someone pushed me into a room not letting me out so I hit them and got another charge for that. And then was attacked after the fact by another party. Can I get out of this charge and what am I facing?
The facts are Interesting but you are looking at possible serious prison time with a second degree battery charge and should contact an attorney. Tote criminal history and previous arrests will be considered by the prosecution.

Yes, you need to petition to seal the record and allow the prosecutor to look over it to see if they have any objections.

I have a suspended license, so i got a 24 volt electric scooter. I got stopped and got a driving on suspended license ticket. I dont think im required to have a license to ride it but the cop said, if my license is suspended, i cant ride it.
There are certain laws and regs that I would need to look at in order to determine whether your electric Scooter would require a license, my gut says yes. But, I think your best opportunity to get rid of this ticket or to try to downgrade it to some other small non-moving violation would be...Read more »
I'm don't understand what you mean by does your driving record show there are no citations. But driver control should be able to answer your questions about your record being released or getting your license back.

Reckless driving carries a mandatory 5 day jail sentence. Without knowing specifics of your fiances case I cannot give you more answers as to why he was charged with reckless driving. Typically that charge can be negotiated down.
If you were stopped and searched by law enforcement and had the baton on you they would likely charge you with violation of Arkansas Code 5-73-120 carrying a weapon, class A Misdemeanor.
