i was looking for advice regarding assault charges and came across your site.fascinating.
please could you give me some help.
i was on a ferry last night when a scholl boy aged 13 started swearing in front of my young children and me.
so i confronted this lad,and asked him to find his teacher with me to sort out this problem.
i was very firm asssertive verbally but touched his shoulder to 'grab:' his attention.
there was no malicious intent ,just touched him.
his teachers now say i assaulted him and have been told to appear in a police station in 30 days time to answer this
crime,when he was the one swearing in a public place.
please tellme what is going on!!!.
