Can someone press charges for felony forgery and later decide, after indictment, before arraignment, to withdraw charges?

Denton, TX |

Person charged has no record of any kind and a very good mother to three young children. Since this charge has now had to turn herself in and find a lawyer that will work for free. Is it possible the charges can be dropped since they aren't founded anyway.

  1. The prosecuting Attorney has the sole discretion whether to dismiss a case and yes it is possible. Whether its likely or not can not be answered on this forum, her Criminal Defense Attorney will better be able to answer that after she/he investigates and receives discovery from the Prosecution.
