They got into an argument and MIL hit my friend. My friend hit back. She called the cops. They arrested her not MIL.
Now MIL wont let my friend get her kids things from MILs apartment. She wants to toss MILs stuff out. She`s scared. Cops wont escort her to get her stuff, and said "im not a lawyer" when she asked about tossing the MILs stuff.
DH wants to cut mom out of his life for good.
Can she toss it? Why charge the person acting in self defense and not the aggressor?
I want to add about the stuff. My friend was staying with MIL, and got her own apartment. MIL moved her (mils) stuff ino my friends apt and put so much my friend doesnt even have room to put furniture. She cant even use her own apt bc of it so she has still been staying with mil. She told mil repeatedly to get it out.
