Assault 2 dv. If the "victim" does not want to cooperate after making an statement against me and is subpoenaed to court and does not show. And the prosecuting attorney is still taking on the case. Do I have the right to face the"victim" at my trial? Is this ground for dismissal or will they go looking for the victim and typically for how long until they drop it? The case has already been going on for 5 months and no speedy trial waiver was ever signed.
You always have your right of confrontation against those who testify against you. If your "victim" does not testify there is nothing to confront. The DA must have independent evidence of your behavior. How long does it take? You're just getting started dude!
Both sides have the right and power to subpoena witnesses. If you want to confront the accuser, you can talk with your attorney about how to subpoena the accuser. You should also talk with your attorney whether you want the accuser to be testifying.
You need to stop asking questions to strangers on the Internet, in this forum because we can't help you? You have an attorney correct? He/she is the one that you need to talk to and ask such questions. Of course you have the right to confront your accuser. Speedy trial rules are complicated. Use your attorney, if you don't like your attorney hire a new one
