My question involves criminal law for the state of: canada
Hi..in may of this year i got into a verbal argument which turned into a fight. She pressed charges against me for aggravated assault causing bodily harm. Im confused because she is the one who punched me first. Im pretty sure that i will be charged with aggravated assault and i can't claim self-defense for the reason that i used excessive force..but can she walk away with nothing if she was the first to attack? because if she wouldn't have touched me none of this would be happening.
