I was in a very violent relationship in which I got pregnant. The night I told him he punched my in my stomach and said he hopes that kills the baby?

He suffocated me and told me he wants to kill me. I went to the police and he has two pending charges for assault and battery on him. I lost the baby 2 weeks ago not too long after I moved from DC to Florida to be with my family. The court date is July 1st. This has taken a huge emotional toll on me. I have very little money and no job as I just moved here. i have about $800 and I have to pay my car insurance in a week so that will leave me with $600. I am going job hunting today and every day until I find a job to make money. The attorney told me that if I am not present in court on July 1st the charges most likely will be dropped. Should i use that last of the little money I have to buy a ticket and ensure he gets convicted of what he did? Or take my money I have to live on.

  • Go to DC and make sure he gets convicted and have no money left

  • Let it be and keep the money I have to start my life over again

    • That's actually a good idea. Maybe crowdfund it through Facebook.

    • Aye, just make sure you never use his name, or you might get the favour returned (slander).

Have an opinion?

  • I personally had - though on a different basis - already a lawcase.

    Law is slow. Additionally in my native language there is a saying "Being right and getting right are two different things."

    Expecting to get money is pretty much a suicidal mission. You can still have a lawsuit filled to get a restrain order later on when you are back to having a job, etc. - for now though your income and stable life is more important than the hope of something coming out of it.

  • Well if he gets convicted that's murder. That would put him away for a very long time protecting women besides yourself from him.

  • I think it would be a good idea to go. Take a car if you can though. It will be much less expensive.

  • I think you should just let it go, it's not that serious.

    • Its not serious to punch a pregnant woman in the stomach and say I hope that kills the baby and then suffocate me and tell me he wants to kill me? Seriously?

    • It's not serious if you're asking about it on this website. If this really happened you would be asking a lawyer or the police. I call troll.

    • I have asked the police, and a lawyer and a counselor and they said it was up to me. That if I wanted him convicted I should be there but I dont have much money since I had to leave him and start my life over because he hit me!

  • Listen, you have to take blame for putting yourself in this situation. A lot of women go for the abusive types and keep crawling back to them after habitual abuse.

  • You need to call the attorney and see how much time he would get, to see if it's even worth the trip.

  • I think seeing this through will provide you with some closure on the situation, some justice and it will protect others, if only for a short time. Do you not have a victim of crime compensation type thing in the states?
