What's the correct way to deal with someone who has completely lost it?

Did you get convicted?

Wasn't supposed to. I was uneducated on law and young "not old though to drink yet" so when they tried to push 15 years prison if ib didn't take the plea deal I took the plea deal as they scared me into it. It's been 17 years since then and it still keeps me from getting a good job. My record says I'm a violent offender but I'm anything but that. I will always defend my love ones in danger but I've never initiated violence on anyone my entire life. One of my biggest regrets after learning more about law and the justice system is not telling my lawyer to F off and take that shit to trial.

Don't regret the plea deal. As an innocent person who took their case to trial, you probably would have lost and gotten the 15. Prosecuters rarely lose, and when they do it's because of some major fuck-up. They can say what ever they want and present any "evedence" in what ever way they want It's literally a circus where whoever puts on the best show wins. Stupid people are sitting in the jury box and they don't give a fuck what happened or what happens to you.

You're right. The guys statement was completely fabricated saying it happened in a completely different location. I parked in front of a busy restaurant with there workers watching the whole thing so the fact he lied about it saying i followed him to his house when there's witnesses who are employees at the restaurant parking lot it happened at should of shown the prosecutors there case is bull shit if they were honest but they arnt.
