I was hit in the head with a bottle on NYE. What can I do to see the perpetrator fully prosecuted?
Also, the morning after the attack I sent a regrettable text message to the perpetrator (who was a friend until he hit me with a bottle for no reason). He is still in jail I assume. I did not threaten him. But did insult him in some regrettable terms. And invited him to "square off" if he has a problem with me. I will not contact him again, and blocked his number. Could my text influence how he is charged? Thank you.

I do not do this kind of work but now that I changed the type of case you have you will get a lot of attention. If the facts are as you say then your former bf is not only in trouble with the police but you can bring a personal injury action against him. This is an intentional "tort" and he well could end up paying your for your injury all the medical expenses and perhaps punitive damages as well. You need a personal injury lawyer in the Eugene area.
This not meant to be legal advise. It is not possible to know everything about your issue in this forum. You should consult an attorney if you want a full answer to your question. I will not be taking any other action on your issue. I only work with clients when they have signed a client agreement with me and provided me with a retainer.
