Customer Question
Last week my ex-boyfriend and...
Last week my ex-boyfriend and I had a family argument that lead to assault on me. I called the constable to report the incident and explain the injuries inflicted. Because the injuries were not visible and my ex and his brother gave another story, they did not arrest him nor the DA accepted the case.
I immediately went to the ER to be viewed and have some type of record. The following day, the bruises were appearing and have been on my face and body for a week. I've been taking pictures of these bruises. I would like to know what course of action do I have when the initial complaint was not taken by the DA's office?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
