Its been 8 months, I was never arrested but the aps case has been "substantiated". The victim did not want to press any charges and has since passed away. Is it likely the DA will press charges?? I'm pregnant now and living a completely sober life. I'm just terrified something is going to happen.
From my experience, DA's do not typically pursue cases when their key witness passes away. I hope this helps.
