There is no guarantee that the case will be dropped. Not for domestic violence charges...my experience is that domestic violence charges are some of the only charges that the state will purse even if the victim does not desire prosecution. So if the victim refuses to honor the subpoena...I would expect the prosecutor to request the court order the sheriff collect (arrest) them and bring them to court to force them to testify. I have seen this happen more than once
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
It is up to the prosector...and, frankly, his defense counsel has a better sense of this than anyone you will ask online. So if the defense lawyer believes that the prosecutor will drop charges if you do not show up...I suspect that may well happen.Just understand that it i up to the prosecutor...they are the only one who can drop this.Can they use your pre trial testimony? Possible...but my experience is that if they want to proceed, they will have the sheriff collect you and bring you to the hearing.
