dismissal of charges

Recommended Posts

My daughter was fighting with her boyfriend and while leaving his home, his brother and she exchanged words. When she pulled out of his driveway in a reckless manner she scraped the side of the brother's pickup truck with her side view mirror. She returned shortly after to speak with her boyfriend to find his brother had called the police. They towed her car and charged her with leaving the scene of an accident and criminal mischief. the brother has no intentions of showing up in court and proceeding with the complaint> will the charges against my daughter be dismissed if he does not appear?

It's not up to him. The prosecutor decides whether or not charges are filed and pursued. He will be subpoenaed and subject to arrest and prosecution for contempt of court if he fails to appear pursuant to that subpoena. Also, apparently the boyfriend was also present and he can be subpoenaed to testify and then there's your daughter's probable statement to the police admitting she left which will be enough to convict her....
