My question involves criminal law for the state of: North Carolina
Hi, I'm not sure how anyone could help me get a better view of my situation before i go get a lawyer and take out an assault charge.
First of all im 16 weeks pregnant and walked into a local Christian program this morning to help get food assistance (since i cannot get food stamps until after the baby is born for some odd reason) I really had to use the restroom and walked into the door saying "ladies" when i walked out the owner of the place said very rudely that this was an "employees only bathroom" and asked if i was a client. The only thing I said was "I just walked in here to see if i can qualify for assistance here, im pregnant and really needed to use the bathroom im sorry-" she cut me off and said " We are not accepting any more clients this morning, you need to leave" and as she said that, she put her hand on my shoulder and pushed me out of the hallway leading to the restrooms. It was only 9:30am and they were open until 3pm. I didnt even get a chance to sit down and see if i was eligiable to receive food from this so-called Christian progam. She gave me an attitude because i used the restroom (even though it IS illegal to deny a pregnant women the right to use a restroom anywhere) and pushed me. I called the PD and had them file a police report. The woman of the Christian program put trespassing against me after the cops arrived and talked with her. I cannot take out a charge until the police report comes back and i get the womans name. I'm very upset that all of this happened because i simply needed to pee! Am i wrong for wanting to press charges against her?
