Hello. My brother and I got in a fight at a local bar with each other. I won and was arrested for assault and battery. There were no other charges and I went peacefully. Now my brother doesn't want to press charges but the case still hasn't been dropped. I've been having some trouble getting ahold of my public defender but last time we talked on the phone she said she thought an accord and satisfaction might make this thing go away. Can you tell me what she's talking about? Hopefully I'll talk to her soon but any information is appreciated. Thanks.
