This is the first time I violated. I was messaged from an account that didn’t identify him as himself. Once I realized it was him we argued and then he called the cops. I have a summons for court on April. Should I expect jail time?

I have no arrest history or traffic violation, nor domestic violence charges. In the midst of all of this chaos, I lost my mom on Nov. 18th of last year right... Read more »
