Again, I want to thank everyone for being so supportive. I spoke to the lawyer today. I’m allowed to leave CA, but I’ll probably have to return in a few months for the final court hearing, but they’ll take care of all the hearings up until then. They want $6,000. I think it’s one of the more expensive law firms in LA, but I hear you get what you pay for, and I don’t think right now is a time to skimp out. They should be able to get the charges down from domestic violence to battery or disturbing the peace. Either of those much better and can be expunged in the future once the case is closed. If they get the charges down, I’ll get my gun rights back and my guns, and I won’t have a record for the rest of my life.
I think my dad is going to help me out by flying out Thursday and helping me load up some of my things and drive back to Nashville so I can be with my family and have some support financially and emotionally while all this is going on.
