I was visiting my mom at when a man came to the door uninvited. When I asked him to leave he lost his temper and bit my face. The police were called and a report was taken. He continued to bother me while I was speaking with the police but he was not arrested. I had to contact the police investigator to press charges. He has now been charged with simple assault and battery 1. His attorney wants to take this to trial which is now 4/9/2012. I have contacted the victims rights advocate who has told me that a subpoena would be sent to me to be at this trial. It is my understanding from my mom's neighbors that this man has been in trouble for assaulting his girlfriend and others in the building. That the housing commission was asked by his family to not kick him out. Can I sue the housing auth?I have a few more questions: Should I call back the victims rights advocate and make sure they have the names of the witnesses? Should I have anyone write character statements on my behalf? Are there any additional steps I should be taking?
