I have a boyfriend in minnesota that had gotten in a bar fight, he first had grabbed my arm to leave and then received a punch in the face by a patron at the bar. However, by boyfriend who was intoxicated was charged with 5th degree assualt as well as 5th degree domestic assault. He can't afford a lawyer but makes too much money for a public defender. The prosecuting attorney wants him to plead to disorderly conduct, stating that "he has to be charged with something." He has already had to spend the week-end in Jail. Is there a different charge that he can take? Since he already served time? The other individual in this case wasn't charged with anything. He thinks he can represent himself. I just think if he can come up with a lessor charge the prosecuting attorney will accept that and move on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
