  1. Your girlfirend cannot drop the charges. Only the DA can drop the charges. Sounds like the State will have witness problems. If your case gets indicted, you need to get an attorney. Your first Court date will be approx2 or 3 weeks after the grand jury.


  2. What you have been told is correct. However, in practical terms if she is gone and not coming back their ability to successfully prosecute is not very good.
