There are many arguments that can be made here to the da. Your bf will not need to appear as long as you retain a Nevada attorney to handle the case.
This is a common scenario in this type of case. The DA's office will screen the police report and other reports (your statement given to the police) prior to your boyfriend actually facing actual criminal charges. There are still many ways to ensure that your boyfriend does not end up with a battery domestic violence conviction on his record. Your best option is to consult a Nevada criminal defense lawyer who has handled these types of cases.
You need a Nevada attorney, and quickly.
Sometimes prompt attorney action can result in a DV charge not even being filed by the court (at the screening level with the DA).
My partner handles these on a regular basis.
There are strategies to win cases like this or get the charges dismissed. But there are a number of questions I would have for you. Did the security personnel witness contact between you and your boyfriend? Were there any other witnesses? I have gotten charges involving out of state victims dismssed time and time again. Once the case is dismissed, your boyfriend can seal his record and wipe away all evidence that the arrest occurred. It is possible he may not have to travel back here, although hemay need to be here to getthe case dismissed. And no, the court date cannot be moved up. Please feel free to call on me for a free consultation. (702) 471-0321
