This sounds like a repeat post from last night.  Please, if you are seriously suicidal, get yourself committed and stay safe, this must be your first priority.  The criminal charges won't go anywhere, they will be put on hold until your release;  wherever you are committed, they will probably have social workers on staff who can talk to the police and the court for you, I can all but guarantee you won't be their first patient with a problem like this.
