What to do if I was charged with disorderly conduct following an exchange with my husband who was also charged?

After our court hearing with the DA, our county decided to drop the charges. Problem is, the city in which we were arrested is upholding the charge in municipal court. A hearing is scheduled in 2 months, although we aren’t required to attend (just pay the fine). However, the charges will show on our records from now on. If I gave a false statement regarding my partner (in the interview) and confess this when we stand before the judge, can I at very least have this charge wiped from his record?

Given the serious nature of the altercation that you and your spouse were involved in and as a form of future damage control so as to prevent a conviction you both really need to consult with a criminal defense attorney to see what can be done to get the matter dismissed. You do not want to be representing yourself in the matter.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
