I was recently a victim of a vehicle assault. To shorten the story I was assaulted first by 3 individuals..i did bring a gun with me and when they assaulted me the gun fell out and they got in their truck and ran me over and are now claiming self defense...the county attorney is in a hard place to press charges because of the gun but if I was assaulted first why would it make a difference and most importantly how is running someone over when I didn't have the gun in my hand ok..also have proof on texts messages they were going to harm me..if the county attorney doesn't follow through with charges what can I do next..this has caused many issues and hospital bills and needs to be addressed appropriately. I feel because drugs were involved I'm not being treated fairly..i feel that shouldn't matter that drugs were involved.. a crimes a crime..am I wrong?
If charges are brought against you, you need to get an attorney. Sounds like you and the other guys planned to meet up to fight or something. I suggest getting off the internet and into a lawyer's office where you have confidentiality.
If you have a criminal case, you need a criminal defense attorney. If the prosecutor will not prosecute them, perhaps you should get a civil litigation attorney and sue them civilly.
