you can go and request that the charges be dropped, as their case will be significantly weakened without your testimony but so you are aware they can press charges wihtout your permission
can I press them hard enough that they will drop them because I feel that they are violating my constitutional rights as an american citizen and that I should have the final say in how the case is to be addressed. Since I'm a tax payer and aren't they supposed to work for the people.
yes you can and you can refuse to testify becuase I am assuming without your testimony they won't have a case right? So if you refuse to testify or if you don't tell the a consistent story or seem to be a credible witness it severely weakens their case and sometimes their won't even prosecute then
