After June 18th i might not be able to be around very much, i got some trouble yesterday afternoon for assaulting a man after a fit of road rage. I didn't really do anything that bad, he was getting all rude with me after he hit me and i spit in his face and called him some names. Little stuff i say, but the local yokel police had to make a big deal about it and they sent me to a holding cell in the Beaver County Jail from 5pm until Midnight. Thats why i missed the game tonight :(
The reason i might miss some time however is because my preliminary hearing hearing for these two misdemeanors is on June 18th. My problem is that when i was 18 in Febuary 2006, i was with two of my friends(at the time) and they stopped at the school and robbed it. I sat in the car and didn't do anything. Which the police said i was just as big a part of it as them because i didn't stop them. I got a bunch of charges which i chose ARD to get out of. I was given 5 years probation with no jail time, it also caused me to lose my scholarship to go play baseball, also my last 3 months at school weren't great for me either. My problem now is because i was put on probation in 2006 for 5 years that i might get re-tried for the case and i could be facing some serious jail time.
I will now write the lyrics to a song that keeps running through my mind. Here is the great Bob Dylan

Here comes the story of the Hurricane
The man the authorities came to blame
For something that he never done
Put him in a prison cell but one time he could-a been
The champion of the world.

C'mon Colin! You've gotta relax my friend. I know your young and have all that energy, but you have to keep control. I'm going to miss you on this board. Sounds like you need to more selective of your friends. Look Colin, you sound like a smart young man, I'd hate to see that all go to waste over some punk who might talk trash to you. I remember in the military I received some serious disciplinary actions because of my short temper and attitude that almost canned my military career. I finally figured out that it just wasn't worth it anymore. I am pulling for you Colin, I hope things will work out alright.

Sorry that you're in this mess. I'm sure you have a lesson learned here. If not, you're headed for a long tuff life. Think things through before acting and you'll be better off.

My only advise is make sure you are represented by a competent attorney. It may cost some money, but it would truly be money well spent if he can help you here.

Yeah i'm getting a good lawyer. I'm getting the same guy i got for the case i got ARD on. I would be fine but the police are saying that this guy can't drop the charges. I don't understand why not. I talked to him today and we are on good terms, he said he was sorry for coming after me and i told him i was sorry for spitting and yelling at him. I don't understand why he isn't in control of the charges being pressed. He never pressed charges the police did. I don't understand this, are the police being crooked or are they allowed to make the decisions on assault cases?
The police are saying that it was brought to their attention by the neighbors that saw the wreck and now they are in control of the charges being pressed.
I know alot of you guys out there know alot more about the law than i do.

Yeah that very did make alot of sense. The thing that gets to me is i was never in trouble with the law at all in my life, i never stole a thing, i never did a friend wrong, then that day at the school happened and that seems to be all the police and some of my neighbors remember. I have held a bitterness inside since i lost my scholarship to play at Texas over it. Luckily i still had a 3.7 gpa so i was able to get into Northwestern pretty easily, but i have been an angry person since i lost that because not ever knowing is worse than failing the worst you could fail. I went to the high school i attended to watch some of my younger friends and some of my younger family members graduate, and i saw the 3 banners hanging in the gym for baseball, in a school that they say if you don't play football or basketball you don't mean anything to that school. There wasn't one banner for baseball before me and my grade got there. We won the WPIAL twice and went to the state finals once while i was there. What did i get out of it, how am i remember by the school, they erased me from every record i set in the record books because i watched 2 kids rob the school and didn't stop them. I'm one year away from graduating at Northwestern and i am/was either going to go on for sports medicine or journalism, but now that is up in the air.
Thank you guys for being here for me, it really means alot to me.

What exactly were you charged with?? Get a good attorney, and try to get it plead down to a summary offense. That should not affect your probation.

I got charged with 1 count of assault and 1 count of harrassment. My worry is losing my ARD and being re-tried for that other case. It was pretty severe because i got a nightime breaking and entering on school grounds and there was also stuff taken, they stole all the football equipment. It was valued at 22,000 so it was way over the small claim of 8,000.

You have to make the assault go away. It should not be that difficult. You should be able to plead to the summary, as long as the guy was not seriously injured. If you have to give the guy some money for injuries, do it, if they will agree to the summary. What county is this in?? It should not violate your probation. It is extremely unlikely that they will try you on the first case. They could, but it is unlikely.

And you gotta watch that temper!

I missed part of this. I hope you check this before the hearing today.

That is not true. They cannot press the issue without the victim's approval. Technically, they do not need his testimony if there were other witnesses, but the DA should not persue this with an unwilling victim. The only case they can press without the victim's cooperation is Domestic Violence. So if this guy is not a boyfriend, he can choose not to follow through with the charges...ALL the charges. You would not even necessarily need to plead to the summary. That would be the BEST thing...hopefully this will work out for you.

Keep us posted. Send me a private message if you dont want to put it here.

One more thing...if all you did was spit at him and call him names, it does not even rise to a simple assault. There was no bodily injury. I think the cop was a little overzealous.

My big problem is that i am already on probation, but it is in Beaver County.
Also i know i have to control my temper, especially since i am already on probation, but i am going to send you a PM Animal and it will explain my situation alittle better.

Well i have to complete 12 weeks of anger management, but my probation officer violated my probation for not reporting for a year, even though last June i got Colitis and he told me i didn't need to report until i felt well. Well after that i went off to college in Illinois at Northwestern, so it was pretty hard to check in here in Beaver County. So now i have to go to court for a probation violation hearing, but the date hasn't been set yet for that.
