short story is this..
Were just starting a mild "drinking session" w/ 4 of my friends on my place when 1 of our friend(already drunked) came. And as we know drunked person is very annoying compared to us w/c is just starting. And that person started to annoy me when he keeps insisting to forget the hate that i have on his friend w/c is also my friend before. I told him that I don't want to forget that unless that person pays the money that he owe to me.
He just keeps repeating it all over and over until we finally pissed off. At the time he is leaving(remember he is on my place) he throws a chair to me and as I got that chair, I see him heading for a case of empty bottles of softdrinks which then I decided to throw back the chair and I go to him and we both slam on the bottles. We made a fight for 5 minutes.
His brother w/c is also w/ us drinking tried to stop us. I stopped because I'm not that drunk compared to him. We've
noticed that he has a blood flowing from his head and for me blood on my arms maybe because of the broken bottles.
Then that guy decided to go outside and threw stones on our house he didn't stop even if his brother already told him
to stop. Until the guard on our subdivision were merely shooting him but our friends just stop the guard and said "Wag nyo pong barilan kaibigan po namin yan".That guy stopped go home and after a minute the baranggay along with him and his father came. Infront of the baranggay tanod that guy's father punch me at my stomach of course that hurts.
We goto Hospital for his medical and for me, one of the tanod insists that I dont need a medical because its only
on the arm compared to that guy w/c is in the head.The guy had a 4 stiches cut on the head.They file case on the baranggay and goes to lupon.In baranggay proceddings they want me to pay 1600 but I insist to pay only half because
He started the fight and not me and we both have wounds because of that fight.
He filed a case to the court and my PAO Atty. suggest me not to attend on the first hearing(although we are there on the vicinity of the court) maybe because
I told her I have a plan on going out of country by the next month for a job.
Then here's the BIG surprise the next month, the day I was leaving couple of man showed on our house saying that I
have an arrest warrant. What the hell!! All I know is that it will took 3 absences on trial proceddings before someone will have an arrest warrant( for Contempt of court). We talked to those police w/c is not in uniform and give them some bucks to allow me to go w/ my flight.
Now the problem is this I'm planning to have a vacation because it happened a year ago. I know that when i don't go
to my address stated on the warrant, the warrant cannot be served. My vacation is only for 1 month.But all I want to is to end this non-sense case. How can I end this?
And if its possible I don't want to go to that guy just to finished the case because the principle is already at stake here.
How much is the penalty for Slight Physical Injury? and if I pay that will the case be ended?
If I hire a private attorney what is the percentage of winning this case?
and by the way the incident happens inside my house/shop w/c I think(if im not mistaken) is one of the great defense
that I have.
last thing(I dont know if it make a sense) the name they filed on the case was not my real name its only my nickname.
Thank you and hoping for reply from the great attorneys out there...
