If my boyfriend was arrested for DV but it was my fault so filed an affidavit of non-prosecution with the state's attorney, is there anything else that I can do?
Question Details: My boyfriend was arrested but it was actually my drunken rampage that caused it.
Whether or not to drop charges is a decision that is made by the prosecutor, not the (alleged) victim. Accordingly, a DV case may go forward and be prosecuted over the victim's objection. That is true, so long as there is other evidence to support the charge. As a general rule, prosecutors are not willing to drop such cases since they do not want offenders to beleive that they can intimidate their victims into not cooperating with the authorities.
