My name is ***** *****. I would like some advice on a situation I am involved in...I was the victim/complainant in a domestic battery/terroristic threatening case that is going to a bench trial
this week. I have been subpoenaed, but Prosecuting Attorney has not responded to my calls. I regret the way things happened, and want to know how I can proceed to request charges being dropped or plead the court
for leniency? Can I submit a letter to the judge and submit with the court clerk to be considered during the trial? Or do I have to do that verbally? I am just not sure of the process. The only contact I have had during this whole process are letters of court dates, no contact order, etc. I need some insight please. Thanks for anything you can provide.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Yes. My then live-in boyfriend and I were having problems. I went into police station to ask him to be removed from my home to avoid more problems. They said he had to be evicted. About a month later, things escalated and I went in again to beg them to remove him. The officer asked what happened to my arm and I said my bf had shaken me. He then said I should file report. I did not want to. He said he was obligated by law to file even if I didn't. I was scared. And, filed a report that included details about the incident and times were he had threatened me. He was then arrested and charges filed. I feel very strongly that he has mental issues that caused him to react in the ways he did and do not believe he meant to harm me in anyway. I have not reconciled with him, but feel responsible....
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Criminal
