I took my husband phone , to get the phone he push me on the bed and I had the baby in my hand and the baby underneath me when I was on too. When the cops came first they took a report.The police called me today trying to get me to say things for me to arrest my husband I told them I do not want him arrested they told me they should of when they was at my house first time. They told me they're going to call ACS and the police was so Nasty to me just because I won't press charges. What are my right?Can they make it to something else and try to arrest him. I was told they will come back to my house. My husband never been arrested and won't and did not abuse the child. Please help me
The statute of limitations is 2 years so the police can still arrest hin assuming what you already told them gives them probable cause to believe that a crime was committed. If you called 911 the police may be able to rely on your statements during the call.
