Ask your criminal defense attorney what evidence she has received in discovery and if she has everything she requested. She should be able to show it to you (except other witnesses' private information) and...Read more »

You can be arrested and charged with a felony if a law enforcement officer believes that you physically hurt an elderly person, or that you neglected a duty to prevent them being hurt. The safest thing is to remove yourself from the situation.
