Good question. Whether or not the victim of the crime that you have been accused of shows up in court will have some bearing for trial with the district attorney's office in actually trying the case. However, just because the alleged victim fails to appear in court does not necessarily mean that the case against you will be dismissed.
There could be medical evidence and or admissions made by you that could warrant the prosecution in taking the case to trial even if the victim fails to appear. If you do not have a criminal defnse attorney representing you in the matter you are writing about, I suggest that you retain one.
The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you go to AttorneyPages.com
and retain an attorney to represent you.
