I strongly desire this violent aggressive person to get any criminal record. She assaulted me and my child. We have one witness, who saw the incident from the her house window and porch and we requested 911 tape which hopefully caught her threats and profanity addressed to me and my kid. We know she hired an attorney, is there any way the case might get dismissed or she will get "not guilty" though we have a witness and a 911 tape? Can I be a witness for my child that was assaulted?
No one can tell you what will happen in court. If you and the witness appear and the evidence is strong, she may enter into a plea deal or she may be convicted at trial. You can absolutely testify as a witness.

Every case is different and one never knows what will happen in a trial. If you are the victim, the bet person to deal with is the assigned State's Attorney (the prosecutor). The prosecutor has the responsibility to evaluate the evidence, present the evidence and make any plea offers. The prosecutor also makes sentencing recommendations if appropriate. Please understand that every criminal case is brought by the State of Maryland. It is not yor case. As the victim, you certainly have input, but the "party" bringing the case is the State of Maryland,.
Please understand, without forming an attorney/client relationship this office is not providing legal advice. We are simply providing general information which should not be acted upon without careful consideration and the assistance of an experienced attorney.
