You need to call a lawyer and we will know how to advise you and your husband. There are steps that can be taken, but the hiring of an attorney is the first step. If you would like to come into my office or talk on the phone you may call for a free consultation at 407-246-0066 and we can get into the details of your case and all possible defenses.
The State Attorney certainly will take into consideration whether the victim is looking to press charges or decline to cooperate. However, its the State Attorneys office who decides whether to prosecute a case. You should contact an experienced criminal defense firm with experience handling domestic violent cases to provide you with specific advice. Our firm offers free consulations to review the police reports and discuss how to proceed.
The victim does not decide whether charges are filed or not. That decision rests solely with the state attorney. However, the state attorney will take the victim's wishes into consideration.
