Affidavit is in effective? Why?
It's ineffective because a criminal case is State of Ohio v. Defendant--the prosecutor is the one who brings the charges and decides how far to pursue them.
What is a "drop charge affidavit?" Are you saying the victim filed an affidavit asking for the charges to be dropped? That's ineffective for several reasons.
First, the victim doesn't "press charges." This is a common misconception. That's the prosecutor's call.
Second, affidavits are sworn statements of fact. They aren't the way to ask the court to tale an action. That's a motion.
Third, given that it's not a thing, it probably wasn't "filed" properly in the first place.
