Was recently mailed a letter stating that I am due in court for arrainment on January 11th for a DV case filed against me. Although she wishes to drop the case and state that it was a misunderstanding, and I am no threat and was not arrested nor were charges filed against me, is it still possible to get a year in jail or pay a fine? When I have no previous convictions of anything? Or is a fine to be paid to end all of it. Can the judge still hand down a sentence even when there is no peril between the two people involved? And if she speaks to the District Attorney directly to stop the process? Can the district attorney have power to drop the case as well? What is in store for the situation?
