I was assaulted outside a bar in November 2007. Call police and arrest him. The DA did not do anything. No arraignment. No drop charge nothing heard from them. When check with the court there were court date for this case but they never press charge on him. Then a year later I called the DA office they told me to wait. Then the end of that month finally they charge him with felony of assault and battery. But offer him a deal of illegal confinement - which I was never confined at any point in the case. But here is the more disgusting part up until now there is no sentencing and no restitution. Then again there is court date for the case they keep continue. What do I do now? Can sue them or complain?
