This won't cost Links anything - with criminal cases it's the crown (God bless the Queen!) that prosecutes and the arresting officer will probably testify as well. Links does not need a lawyer and is more than capable of self-representing.

I don't know what kind of punch it was, but if he has bruises in a few days, he should go see a doctor and have photos taken

Unlike family court, in a criminal setting the burden of proof must be within a reasonable doubt. Links has witness' - this should be simple to prove. If the ex is found guilty, she will have mandatory anger management therapy and pay a small fine.

What's important is that it's documented ... that's an investment for the future. The judge will probably grant Links a restraining order as well.

Sure it's more aggravation to have to go to court over this, but it's the right thing to do especially with certain (crazeee) people - this is all they understand.
