The prosecutor may proceed. The police may testify as to anything observed personally and admit photographs based upon knowledge. It's another story if the prosecutor tries to admit testimonial statements by a victim that is not available to cross examine. Your attorney will object and the judge should exclude any such statements unless the prosecutor can establish that the statements are reliable and admissible pursuant to a hearsay exception. Some jurisdictions will hold the witness in contempt for failure to obey a lawfully served notice-subpoena to appear as well. Judges are also careful not to dismiss unless notice is well established and the court is satisfied that the witness was not threatened or intimidated.See question

Ronald A. Cabanayan has given you an excellent answer. All criminal cases are pursued by the government on behalf of the people for the enforcement and upholding criminal laws. Therefore, the case is titled: People of California vs. John Doe when someone violates a law in California. When someone is charged with a federal crime, the case is entitled United States vs. John Doe.See question

Get an attorney licensed in Florida. Talk to a local attorney, in S Carolina, to see if there any way to get jurisdiction there. I always recommend being proactive by getting notarized character letters supporting your custody/parenting time claim. The letters should be specific on your relationship with the children and any specifics regarding your good character or any aspects of your husband's negative character that they know first hand. The letters should be from persons that are willing to be a witness for you and should provide a name, address and phone number. Your attorney may be able to attach them to a motion or purpose of getting an ex parte order. Good Luck.See question

I assume you already have a lawyer that you retained or has been appointed. So it is always best to confer with your attorney regarding your options. I can say that the prosecutor can take a deal off the table if it is not accepted. You might wind up with a better deal, worse deal or no deal. Again, your attorney can advise you regarding the prosecutor's policy for these matters.See question

We always recommend to our clients to contact the court about 10 days after probation ends. There is usually A document that is provided from the court to the client which will indicate that the client successfully completed probation. If you were given a deal whereby the case received special consideration at the end of probation, such as a dismissal under 7411, then the document would so indicate that the dismissal was granted or otherwise. Regardless, you should want to obtain this document and keep it with your important records for future reference in case you need to produce this information for a job application or other purpose.See question
