Should I plead guilty for battery if the victim was threatening me? 1 Answers as of October 29, 2010
I had a fight with someone in a bar who was drunk and making verbal threats and insulting me. I ended up breaking his nose. If I plead guilty will this reduce the charges or should I hire an attorney and fight the case?

I have seen a bar room fight that resulted in a broken nose charged as an aggravated assault instead of a misdemeanor assault or disorderly conduct. An attorney would be very helpful in navigating those waters.
