My girlfriend and I got in a fight and I hit her. We made up and are back together. Can she just drop the charges?
It is not up to your girlfriend whether the charges are dropped or not. It is up to the state. It is best to have an experienced attorney who can communicate directly with the prosecutor and facilitate your girlfriend speaking with the prosecutor. However, it’s still up to the state as to whether to pursue the charges against you. And that may come down to whether or not this has ever happened before, or whether or not you have a prior criminal history. All those things have to be considered in determining whether the charges will be dropped.
