    You need to speak with a criminal defense attorney immediately. Additionally, I would strongly recommend you stop posting details about your case in public forums, like Avvo.

    First and foremost, it is worth repeating that the accuser or alleged victim does not drop charges, rather the State Attorney's Office makes the decision to bring or drop charges.

Some attorneys factor trial costs into the fee, some factor costs into the fee, so it really depends.
