What is the name of your state? NJ
My girlfriend was assaulted by a group of people. She has cuts and bruises all over her face and body. One of the assailants gave the police a knife and accused my girl of attacking them, thus claiming self defense. The police arrested my girl with assault with a deadly weapon because they claim there is an independent witness.
However, she believes this witness isn't independent at all and knows the assailants and possibly herself. Can she find out who the witness is so she can prove they aren't independent at all? Also, can she receive a copy of the police report somehow...she called the police station and they said she can't have a copy.
