My question involves criminal law for the state of: PA
I had an small scuffle with a girl after an argument and the inside the girl's house. We had been drinking It was basically wrestling and hair pulling not good but know one got beat up. My husband, her husband and her husband's best friend witnessed it and pulled us apart. It was a small scuffle and I take responsibility for my actions in this scuffle. After it ended my husband and I left the house and had a verbal argument in their driveway about the incident. I told him I would not leave with him and I would call someone else to get me. He tried to get me to leave with him but I wouldn't and he left. Somewhere in the scuffle or on the way out I lost my cell phone and I was trying to find it in their drive way. Her husband came out and told me to leave the property or he would he call the cops. I said please let me find my phone and I will leave. He said again to leave. I said please again I just need my phone and I will leave. This was in their driveway. I had never been to their house before and was not familiar with the area so I needed help by calling someone so I could leave. I then heard his wife screaming and raging from inside the house. She then came out the front door towards me. I said I dont want to fight anymore, please lets just make peace. She then knocked me to the ground and began punching and kicking me in the head and all over my body. I covered my head with my hands and did not fight back. I kept saying please stop, please stop. I thought if I did not fight she would just stop but she just kept going. Her husband and his best friend attempted to get her to stop while at the same time telling me repeatedly I deserved it for not leaving. I had not screamed or said anything towards her prior to her coming out the house and attacking me. I do not remember how it stopped I was kind of disoriented. I do remember telling her husband I was going to have her arrested and he said what are you going to do 3 witnesses against you, this did not happen.
The cops came apparently a neighbor called for the noise. I was pretty beaten up and had bleeding knees from being on the ground.
The cops did not want to charge her they wanted to charge us both with harassment. I told them what happen to me and they said witnesses said otherwise. My husband then later testified to them that I had no visible marks when he left from the initial scuffle. The cops then took me to my parents home. I woke up a few hours later. I was badly bruised had multiple contusions on my scalp and chin, forehead, jaw and cheeks and large bruises on my head and huge bruises on my legs. My body felt as though I was an a car accident. I went to the ER and found out I had a concussion and rib injuries. I went to the doctor several more times in the days that followed for pain.
The cops do not seem to want to help me even with the way I looked and my medical reports. I have had to push them to charge her with something. Then they keep adding more charges to me and I was beaten pretty badly. I am ok with paying a fine for the initial scuffle but they keep adding more charges to me as I have tried to pursue justice for her attacking me. They told me they cant charge who won the fight and it looks like I just got my ass kicked and I did but while I was laying on the ground covering myself.I got a lawyer to help me but I feel like they are punishing me for wanting justice it is insane and I am a victim. I have been unable to return to work due to the trauma of the situation and my doctor has pulled me out of work do to post traumatic stress.
What can I do? I have hired a lawyer he went with me to the police station but they would not really listen. I fear they will not give the DA my medical reports and pictures as the officer said he makes a report but keeps all the evidence. What can I do?
