i have told you about this situation before over the drugs find that was not mine which i am pleading not guilty to.
the worry i have is the 2 police officers have assault chrges against me also but i did not assault them.
in their statements the 1st officer says he takes me by the arm. yes he did take me by the arm and twisted it up my back and i just wanted him off from the pain i received in my wrist so i pulled and swung my body around to get him off and he grabbed me and pulled me to the ground.
i got up and screamed what the f**k are you doing and thats when the other officer took me from behind my arms and through me face down to the ground.
my problem is i admitted to assaulting them under interview by my first solicitor which they gave me he said you would be cautioned. as we where more worried about the drugs posession that was never mine.
my girlfriend witnessed all this at the time and has informed me truthfully that these officers where very heavy handed with me first.
problem is i admitted to what i done under interview and admitted assault as my soilicitor says touching somebody is an assault can i explain this in court before pleading guilty.
ps: i admitted i was drunk and very irate as to the officers handling of me at first.
i have hospital records of suspected broken wrist i had to wait 10 days for swellig to go down before xrayed again. i had severe nerve damage done to my wrist where i could not feel hand for 4 months.
just where i stand if i plead not guilty to the assault charges does what i say in interview stand more against me in court ? as i admitted to asault but when it really is self defence. no punches where thrown.
sorry just really worried about losing my job in this i have a mortgage and kids and this 1 mistake is going to cost me.
does it look bad for me if i say that it was in self defence ?
hi are you able to answer ?
