Good afternoon,

Yes, you should consult a local Criminal Defense attorney as the customer does not control whether or not charges will be filed. The crime is considered a crime against the state and the prosecutor has the ability to file the charges despite what the "victim" might ask them to do. I'm sorry.

I hope you found my answer informative, even if the law is not necessarily in your favor. I wish you the best in 2012.
