There are (literally) a dozen of witnesses who all have seen (and some even testified at the police station, incl. the referee) what happened. The hospital has given an official statement of Elise being injured. Even Karen has confessed to the press that her father hit Elise.
If I was such a low life as he is, things would have gotten out of hand right now. But he's lucky that we want to solve this in a decent way: in court if it's necessary. No need to get all physical like he did.
Just can't express how I feel right now...
This must be one of the strangest weeks in my life, let alone Elise's... It's an upside down world...
What are the charges? And where is he pressing charges?
That could be move suggested by his lawyer so that he does not appear "too" guilty, claiming some sort self-defense
Best defense is to go on offense
