I went out with a friend's boyfriend behind her back...
I'm a 16 year old girl. Several months ago, I went out with a friend's boyfriend behind her back. I know I shouldn't have. He told me he was planning to break up with her (can't believe I fell for that).
When she found out about it, she and two of her friends cornered me in a bathroom at school and she attacked me. I fought back in self-defense and she got the worst of it. I actually knocked one of her teeth loose, but I swear I didn't mean to. I'd never been in a fight before and was just swinging wildly, not really aiming for anything in particular. The three of them lied to the administration and said I started the fight. The principal called the cops and I was arrested.
In court, I was found guilty because all three of them stuck to their story and said I started everything. I don't have any priors, but the judge sentenced me to spend a month in juvie. Since I have a job, he's given me the weekend to resign and put "my affairs in order." On Monday, I have to turn myself in to the juvenile detention center to begin serving my sentence. So instead of starting the new school year, I'm gonna be sitting in jail.
Look, i own the fact that I wouldn't be in this situation to begin with if I hadn't been such a sh*tty friend. I guess I kinda deserve all this. I've definitely learned a lesson for sure. I'm gonna try and handle my time in juvie as best I can. And I'm definitely gonna be a better person from now on.
