My question involves juvenile law in the State of: South Carolina
I'm 16 and I was charged with Assault and Battery, Disorderly Conduct, and Disturbing the Peace.
What Happened: I was being threatened over the phone by another 16 year old that has about 100lbs and a foot on me, and I just couldn't take it, and snapped. I walked out of the class I was in, went to his class, and hit him a good number of times, then we traded a few punches, then I retreated into the hallway, and the fight continued there for a bit, we wrestled, then after we were tired we both kind of separated. I got some water, then started walking back to where the administrators were. As I was doing this, I see him in a full sprint coming towards me again, so being exhausted, I ran past some janitors and they were able to grab him, but not before he clocks me one good time on the temple. He called me that night and we both apologized and made amends since we used to be friends and the whole situation was pretty stupid. No one got really injured. He hurt his hand a little bit by hitting me, got a nice knot on his head, as did I. The school resource officer told me since it was my first offence and I have never even been suspended that i'd probably not even have to go in front of a judge, but I'm still kind of nervous. What do you think the punishment will be?
