Charges Are Not Up To The Alleged Victim
When someone calls the police to a potential domestic violence situation in the Kansas City area, the police generally come with the mindset that they will arrest someone. The decision to bring charges is up to the police, not the alleged victim or another witness.
Additionally, once the police bring criminal charges, the prosecutors generally have a blanket policy not to dismiss these cases, even if witnesses change their stories. It is no longer a “he said-she said” scenario at that point, but rather, a criminal accusation by the government against the alleged perpetrator.
When I am your attorney, I will bring a strong defense to mitigate the damage this sort of charge brings.
