Turns down misdemeanor charges when facing felony charged if he goes to trial?!?! My ex is facing felony child abuse charges (matter of public record) and a felony assault weapon possession charge (he's a Marine). The DA is going for the whole she-bang, but the judge offered him a misdemeanor and his sentence would be 52 classes of a battery course (basically 1 a week for a year) and 180 days in jail ( of which he would serve maybe half because that's how things seem to roll in LA County). ANd he declined?!?!? Either he is REALLY stupid or just an arrogant ass!! (#2 is my vote!)
If he is convicted of a felony, that can negatively effect every aspect of your life! Certain felonies can prevent you from purchasing a home, lots of possible jobs, definitely continuing his military career... And there is not a doubt in mine, or the DA's mind that he will be convicted.
It's like he is bringing his own rope to his own hanging... And even if for some un-God-known reason, he is not convicted in the civilian court, he still has to face the military courts, and let me tell you, NCIS is not a fan of his right now. He is almost guaranteed to be administratively separated at the very least. Which means other than honorable, which is way worse than just being fired from a job. If you get anything other than an honorable discharge, good luck finding a job! Not to mention that a lot of employers inquire if you have ever been charged (not convicted, but charged) with a felony. He has not done well for himself. Great representation of the few and the proud right there!
