Q: What is the outcome if the defendant pleads guilty,or not guilty to three counts of terroristic threats and acts
And one count of family violence??
A: You should always plead not guilty until you have an opportunity to discuss your case with an attorney.
Well, there is a huge range. Lots of factors involved including prior issues, mental health, substance, the relationship, ability to commit a violent act, etc etc.
Judges take their time with these cases as issues like these lead to headlines in the newspaper. I have seen everything from straight probation to years and years in prison. You need answers from the Attorney's involved. The defense and prosecutors should have a good idea of whats up.
Good luck and get a LOCAL lawyer, thats the kind you need.
