Q: My son was arrested for class a misdemeanor, what will happen to him? We reside in suffolk county, ny.
My son is 32 he was arrested yesterday because his ex filed a report and pressed charges due to him touching her twice And kissing her once without consent at a play center for kids during his visitation time with their son. She is 26. I believe there is surveillance at the play center they were at. He might have also violated a refrain from order that was in place on her behalf in family court. This is his first arrest. Will he face jail time?
A: It depends on his history and what he is charged with. I have represented several clients on first offense forceable touching cases and got probation, no jail time. He needs to get an experienced attorney.
A: Is the matter pending at the courthouse in Central Islip? Is he charged with forcible touching? If he has not already hired an attorney, he needs to consult with and retain an experienced criminal defense lawyer immediately. Call my office at (516) 766-1878 to discuss further. -Mike
