If someone (an estranged spouse) finds their husband

If someone (an estranged spouse) finds their husband unconscious/unresponsive from obvious known diabetic complications and instead of attempting to render aid (calling an ambulance, police, etc) leaves the person knowing that in so doing, the person will die, and does indeed pass away, what charges does that person face if proven she did not provide any aid at the time of discovery?

I later found out that she was pregnant, very upset that we were not dating, and trying to hurt me.Am I allowed to have a gun in Oregon with one felony conviction and a dropped restraining order?

My son is incarcerated on homicide by child abuse charge.The

My son is incarcerated on homicide by child abuse charge.The child's death was not reported immediately to authorities, so when the body was found it was in a decomposed state. At trial the cause of death was never conclusively proven. The state presented an expert who testified that her opinion on the cause of death is that the child died from repeated head injuries. She testified that she based this opinion off of my son's codefendant statements. (other words she stated that by my son's codefendant implicating him of striking the child, this is how the child died.) But on the autopsy there's no physical evidence of prior abuse. On cross examination the state's expert was forced to admit that if the codefendant's statements were inaccurate what would that do to her opinion. She stated that if the statements were inaccurate then her opinion would be totally wrong!! My question is can a medical expert base their opinion on cause of death based off someone's statement? Is this acceptable in the courts?

About 3 years ago my son was intentionally ran over by his ex-girlfriend. She is also the birth mother of his baby girl. He suffered partial disability to his right hand and her insurance company settled for $20,000.Because she intentionally ran him over with an auto vehicle, isn't that considered to be assault using a deadly weapon? Not sure if that's categorized assault 1 or the legal ramifications. Non the less to this day she has not learned her lesson and she is still threatening violence. We would like to start criminal charges for the assault. Is it too late and where do we begin? Finally, is this called assault 1, assault using a deadly weapon? Please explain
