If I was charged with domestic violence and the victim doesnt show up to court, what happens?
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.
