My 5'8" college aged son was bullied in a fast food joint by a 6'4" guy who asked him to meet him outside (to fight). When my son got his order, the guy left at the same time and continued name-calling and bullying him, telling him to "come on" (implying to fight). My son asked him why was he doing this, then the big guy hiked up his pants, getting into a fight stance. As a knee-jerk reaction, my son swung and grazed his coat sleeve. My husband broke it up, but the big guy 6 weeks later pressed 1st degree assault charges. What can my son expect at the preliminary hearing? The big guy lied & said he was hit in the head but on his Instagram he's showing pictures of him and he's fine and my husband was a witness as he was there. Will the difference in the boys' size influence the judge?Will the fact it took him 6 weeks to file charges make a difference?
