What is Misdemeanor Assault?
Misdemeanor assault, also referred to as a simple assault, generally means an act of violence against another person but can actually include any physical contact made without consent. Even a threat of bodily harm made with an apparent ability to cause the harm is considered assault. The threat must cause a reasonable fear of injury, otherwise there is no assault. The victim of the assault is also considered.
In court, Bolton pleaded guilty to the misdemeanour assault of HS. He received two years of probation, community service, a fine and was required to take anger-management classes. The charge of rape was dropped, leaving him free to return to school and take up his place on the basketball team.

He pled quilty of misdemeanor assault which means he admits to grabbing her without her consent which is sexual assault.
He didn't just get community service and anger management lessons he also got two years probation and a fine. So you see, the charges did exist I don't know where you got the idea from that they didn't.
Are you reading the same article as me? Because it seems that all the information you say isn't there is cleary presented. There is no evidence that I can see that says there was a fight at the party so I don't know where you got that from either.
there was no rape.

Unity_99 i enjoyed your thread on this topic. i posted there and repeat the essence here:
if you had a daughter that said she was raped, would you leave her in the same school with the alleged rapist? no way in hell would i want that girl to run into this fellow in the hallways. and there is the whispers or some idiot yelling a hurtful slur at the girl. it makes no sense to me why this girls parents did not remove her from that school asap.
now her family has a tremendous debt to repay and that poor girl is still stuck in that school. this incident is going to haunt her for a long time. and there she is, stuck in a stupid little town that is bound to have some people talking trash and pointing fingers. very sad.
