Domestic violence cases cannot be dropped once the charges are filed. Many people do not know that it is up to the prosecutor to drop charges - the alleged victim cannot do it. Often, prosecutors do not drop charges unless the case falls apart. You and your attorney should be very careful when speaking with a prosecutor about the facts of a case.
