Hi there, I was involved in a domestic violence incident on November 24th 2018. My ex-boyfriend was arrested and taken to jail for the weekend. Following the events I was expecting a phone call to appear in court, and never received any. Recently I found out via public record that the charges were dropped because of no witness present. I had taken pictures of my injuries following the event to prepare to press charges but was never contacted by the court to appear. Is there any legal action I can take? Thank you.
