I was assaulted in school and I want to know who's decision it is to press charges.
So I was assaulted in school and the kid hit me with a gym locker lock. I had to get 2 staples in my head. my mom doesn't really want to press charges but my wants justice besides school punishment but he isn't doing anything. The kid who hit me with the lock got 30 days at an alternative school but when he came back to school he was still in my gym class and his locker is right next to mine. Btw he just randomly started to hit me in the head for no reason. I don't think 30 days is enough and I would like to press charges. can I do that on my own?
