Fran, you stated the following:
If your husband wants the charges dropped he ought to find the prosecutor assigned to his case and talk to him or her before the court date and tell him what really happened. He should let the state know that he does not feel he is at risk, needs no protective order against you and does not with to go forward with a prosecution.
He did all this from rehab he was there 30days for drug use. He faxed the domestic prosecutor notarized, witness with his license telling him, he is in rehab and made the story up. He also spoke to him directly from rehab.
So since he did this I am wondering what are they odds if they will dismiss the charges. Also, if they dismiss the charges for aggravated assault/with a deadly weapon can they get me on something else that would indict me or give me more probation time?
