i know theres lawyers and shit who browse this forum my friend is having some legal problems and doesnt have any money for a lawyer so i wanna see if i can milk some free advice out of you basically my friend got arrested a while back for driving without a liscence a couple times. when they let him out the made him sign a contract saying that he wont get arrested anymore for however long and all that shit. about 3 days ago he was arrested again but claims it was self defense/racism. he's black.. and lives in a mostly white neighborhood... and he said he was standing ni his yard and this white guy (who he claims was drunk) came up to him and was like do you live here?! my friend responded "im not in the mood get the fuck outta my face." and the white dude kept askin him and shit. so my friend walked away, off his property and into the street, and the dude followed him and walked around him and pushed him. so my friend punched him in the face and then he got arrested. from what he's saying nobody pressed charges but he was taken to jail and kept in a holding cell then released and given a court date for violating his contract. the penalty for violating is 2 years. he wants to plead self defense/racism... anyone have any thoughts/advice on this?
