Can I drop charges in a case for which I was the victim?
The prosecutor needs to know about the request, but whether or not the charges will be dropped is within the prosecutor's discretion. As already noted on this website, the City Attorney's Office has a no-drop policy on domestic abuse cases, but we always want to know the wishes and needs of the victim.
