Me n my girlfriend got in to an argument that escalated she called the cops stating I twisted her arm n punched her arm she also admits to hitting me in the statement we were both wrong n r trying to move forward she wants to drop the charges but doesn't know how
In general, she does not have the ability to drop the charges. It is not her against you, it is the State against you. If they can prove that you battered her in any way and it was not in self defense, then they will likely prosecute you. Your best bet is to find a local attorney to defend you. He or she can meet with you an your girlfriend and decide how to best help you.
You need to retain the services of an attorney. She cannot drop the charges they are brought by the government and not by her.
She cannot drop the charges. The police will likely make an arrest and then it's up to the DA.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 18 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
When an individual is charged with an assault involving domestic violence, the district attorney's office tends to take it very seriously. With that said, the da's office looks at several factors when deciding whether to go forward with their case: the age of the complainant and defendant, were there any injuries, is there a history of domestic violence, does the defendant have a record, does the complainant want to pursue the case etc. The DA takes all this into consideration in making a decision. If this is a first arrest, and there are no real injuries, and the victim does not wish to pursue the case, very often the case can result in an ACD , sometimes with an Order of Protection. You should consult an attorney who can better assist you in this matter.
Your girlfriend cannot drop the charges. It is up to the District Attorney to drop the charges.
