    order of counseling

    I do not know where to turn....I live in Illinois. My daughter lives in Arizona. In Sept of 2011 she had a altercation with her boyfriend of 2 years. He drinks excessively and although he is not violent to her physically....he is beligerent and taunting to her, to the point my daughter is stressed to the limit. But my daughter is a very tolerent kind, accepting soul, who is a 4.0average student in Pima college, she has made the presidents list at school, she has her own business and teaches children violin, voice and piano...she performs with her students monthly and has her own teaching studio...My daughter has done this all on her own. Everyone who meets her has only wonderful things to say about her professionlism and her ability to motivate and delight her students.

    Her boyfriend, although he supports all she does, does not provide any emotional support since he is constantly more concerned with going to work, and coming home to drink.
    An altercation resulted from his habit, and My daughter had a weak moment and slapped him after he taunted her to do, while very drunk, so drunk he could not drive them home from a concert, so My daughter left on her own, and this happened when he came home later.

    My daughter was arrested, spent a night in jail, and had to appear multiple times in court. She finally entered a plea to appeal and the judge ordered she go to counseling for 1 year and attend group sessions once a month, along with monthy drug testing, and 20 hours of community service.
    Her boyfriend has to do NOTHING, but smugly watch her suffer these consequences of his beligerent display to her!
    MY DAUGHTER is devested...she is not a violent person, she has NEVER done drugs, and to be exposed to counseling for character she does not have, is bringing her down.

    MY question is this: is there anyway to appeal to the court to lesson this order removing the monthly and weekly counseling sessions and maybe just do the commuity service.
    I have never seen her so hopeless...I cried all night for a way to lessen this for her..I hope there is an alternative.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME

    You cannot help her, if she will not help her herself, by dumping the guy.

    Thank you - that is so true, she has actually broken up with him more than 4 times..He surely knows how to get back into her life.

    You needs to consult with a criminal law attorney who may be able to help her with some of this. But as far as her situation goes, if she stays with this person, only more bad things will happen.
