Sticky situation, acused party is (well was) employer & stepmother, (obviously no longer employer). One day at the office she lost her temper and after yelling & screaming at me punched me in the face when I failed to cower at her screamings. I left & several minutes later returned to the office w/ my father (also at the time employer) per request. After several minutes of yelling & screaming at me even more she attacked me again, only that time I fought back until was broken up by my father. A black eye and several hours later I called the police department for advice and was advised to file a report on assault. So I did just that & am currently awaiting a court date.
I hear she has a lawyer to defend her side of this situation, I however do not. Any advice or information on what could happen or to expect, or what I can do to ready myself for in the courtroom?
*also I am not a minor & upon filing the report I requested she not be arrested as to not upset her children who were due to be home from school soon.
