I am terrified after being charge for assault - my first ever offense with the law

 

My now ex-boyfriend had a fight and he called the police claiming i assaulted him. I pushed his shoulder after he called me a *f*****g whore. I was taken in custody and released after 4 hours. I had to sign an undertaking stating that i would not contact him and would not go within 250 meters from the apartment where we both live. After cooling off, I started putting together all that happened and he did put his hands on me first. I asked the police if I could add to my statement and they told me no because it was after the facts.

I was not told how long this would have to be for and my first court appearance is 7 weeks away.

I have never, ever been in trouble with the law before. He on the other end was convicted of assault before. He did told me on many occasions how if i was his wife, he would smack me around to show me my place. Foolish me, I never called the police.

I am terrified as to what can happen to me. I am a normal person with a good job and have never been in trouble before.

Both our names are on the lease of the apartment and all I want is to get my furniture and get my name off the lease, move as far away from this place as possible. He has been living with for 9 months.

Help please.
