When the police was called they came and wrote and I wrote a statement but I also told them I did not want to press charges...no he was not taking to jail...as I stated he was arrested yesterday bc they took a warrant out for his arrest but we did not know he had a warrant bc he was reporting to his probation officer and going to class like he pose to have been for his previous incident.
They are holding him with no bond because of violation of probation because he was already on probation for similar charges....when I go to court and tell them I didn't want to press charges and things in that nature will they let him go or make him serve time
What do you mean if I am not going to cooperate with the state. And requesting an earlier hearing then next friday will do what???
So when I go to court and I don't testify against they have to drop the charges being that I never wanted to press charges to begin with???
I'm going to court but when I tell the judge what happened and that I don't want him being sentenced to jail...will they release him on that day after we are done with court
Some of the things that was wrote on the report didn't happen...I was mad and exaggerated somethings at the time because I never wanted to press charges. ....when I tell the judge that will that cause me to get in trouble? ??
