If you are assaulted and hit back using self defence can you press changes? & the person who was assaulted is pregnant

Yes you can defiantly press charges if the woman is pregnant and is injured it could affect the baby therefore yes you can press charges but they could also press charges against you if you have injured them enough than they could

I was assaulted on Wednesday in a public mall in front of hundreds of people & cameras . I have witnesses that could say I was getting up to walk away & the girl assaulted me & obviously I would've hit back as self defence because of me being 22 weeks pregnant . I told the cops this & they said ' NO YOU CANT PRESS CHARGES BECAUSE YOU HIT BACK ' & when I said it was because of my unborn child I hit her back they said ' WELL YOU & HER BOTH HAVE A WARNING ' pisses me off because my baby could've died or could have defects when he is born .

Well, they can press charges against you also. Cops are not aloud to take sides. Now, if there are people who saw, and back your story...things are a little different.

then press charges. I just have first hand knowledge in CA, they wont take sides. Its your word against theres. I honestly think they just dont want to do paperwork. You have all that, then you can press and when. You can also press charges of child endangerment.
