Where can i get legal help . I have not much money and need advice from a lawyer---this is a serious problem .
I am having lies told about an incident where I was attacked and beaten. The man and woman involved has threatened me if I press charges against the woman. The man involved is a Deputy Sheriff and he said he would lie and say that I instigated the attack. This is not true---But, I have no money to hire a lawyer. What can I do to defend myself---I am female and 49 years old---should I proceed with the charges or drop it for fear of retaliation---anyone have a suggestion--it is not uncommon for law enforcement officers to be the most violent people (men)---he said no one would believe my story over his---are there any lawyers out there that can give me some advice as to what I might be able to do?--If their story is believed then I will likely lose my job--
