My question involves criminal law for the state of: Kentucky
My boyfriend of six months claims that I tried to kill myself by overdose. However, I did not, but was forced by him to go to the ER. A doctor never saw me, the nurse gave me charcoal to drink and I was free to leave in less than an hour. Hours after this, my boyfriend got drunk while I was asleep and woke me up. He flipped out and threw me all over our apartment. Everytime I tried to get out of the apt. to get away, he pulled me back in, or physically picked me up and threw me back in. After an hour of this, I managed to get outside and scream for help. A neighbor came over (who happened to be my boyfriends best friend) and I was able to get away. When I was leaving, my boyfriend jumped in front of my car and jumped on the windshield and now claims that I ran him over. The police looked at the damages to the car and said that this damage couldn't have occured if I hit him unless I was doing about 40 mph. I had just shifted into first gear when he did this. My car wasn't even moving. Also, there is no other damage to the car other than the windshield being shattered. He has been charged with 4th degree assault and I was wondering what type of sentence is usually given for this offense. Note: I also have pictures taken by the police of my injuries the night this happened and was advised to take pictures again after a few days had passed. I have a bruise and a knot on my hip, my upper arm, my chest, and 3 on my legs. I also have a huge scrape on my elbow.
