In any domestic violence case, don’t be fooled into thinking that the District Attorney will “drop the charges” if the victim doesn’t support prosecution. Most often, the victim’s desire to support prosecution will have little bearing on whether or not a case gets filed and prosecuted. Once the police have been called it is out of your hands. The police will file a police report and forward it to the prosecution.
Once the prosecutor looks at the police report they will then decide whether or not to file a case Expecting the charges to be dismissed solely on the basis that the ‘victim’ doesn’t want to prosecute is misguided thinking. Also, not understanding domestic violence laws or being the sole provider does not cause domestic violence charges to be dropped. The prosecutor will likely proceed with the case regardless of the victim’s southerncaliforniacriminalattorney.composition.
