Daphne, AL asked in Criminal Law and Domestic Violence for Alabama

Q: Was assaulted by my 25 yo daughter in my home

I was taken to jail and charged with Domestic Violence 3rd degree, I have bruises from my wrist to shoulders both arms, she had nothing. Her boyfriend called from another county 911 and reported it, he wasn’t even here? How did I get arrested? Never been to jail or arrested I’m 46 years old and a nurse! I was never read rights nor did the police even take pictures? Do I need to get lawyer? Or just show up for the court date? And hope for the best ?
