Her reason for the ungovernable charge was that I am disrespectful and I do what I want when I want. About ten days ago. She slapped me, so hard I couldn’t hear out of my ear. That entire side of my face went numb. Then I yelled at her that I hated her and hit her arm. When she called the police,... Read more »

Depends on the circumstances and facts surrounding the allegations. How bad was the assault? Was it on going? Were there long-lasting injuries? Were the kids present? Was a weapon used? Were alcohol or drugs a factor?
The female slaps me four times and I walk away. Four blocks later she's still following me. I keep walking but yells for her to leave me alone. She grabs my hair from behind as I'm walking and attacks me from behind. I felt threatened for my life as she assaulted me four times already, so I... Read more »

The decisive factor is whether you have committed shoplifting on more than one occasion, and whether you entered...Read more »
My mother changed careers when I was a pre-teen, and she was a fairly inexperienced counselor. I came to her with normal teen problems, i.e. concerns about not fitting in in high school and she offered to do counseling with me in our house. I didn't know better so I accepted. In hindsight, this... Read more »
