I didn't go and speak with the DA about my husband that was charged with child abuse recklessly cause great harm because I have been not my self for a long time... My husband has lied to me and I have been believing him for so long. I have been on medication and my head is starting to be less foggy and clear but now that this case has been dismissed I was told nothing can be done and it is all my fault for not going to speak with him... I have a lot I would like to tell him what should I do?
It was dismissed and it was closed 04-29-2013
No I will do that tomorrow I did call yesterday but I just talked to the clerk and I didn't think to ask if it could be reopened ...
Is that something they can do? Can it be reopened?
Are you still there?
