A plea is basically a shorter sentence in exchange for pleading guilty. By not accepting it he's going to trial, where they'll either find him not guilty, guilty of some charges, or guilty of the whole thing. His punishment will be tougher, but there's also the chance of being partially convicted or just let off. Personally I think he's getting ready to drag Tayler rightfully through the mud.
If any of Chuckie's family is reading here: he's no saint but the courts need to know about Tayler's lies so they can help the kids. Gather up screenshots, tell his attorney about her constant showing off on social media which is not characteristic of a victim, etc. The truth needs to come out, not just their versions of the truth.
That's exactly what I think. He didn't take the plea because he wants to have his chance to show what _she's_ like. He wants his day in court to sling some mud himself. The DV charge isn't from family court, it's criminal court, right? It's totally separate from any divorce or custody proceedings. If I were her, I'd be nervous.
