Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
Sorry to hear about your problem.
Firstly can I just say that even if you write this letter there is little likelihood that charges will be dropped. There is a recent crown office directive that charges such as this should not be dropped at the behest of the complainer and it is in the public interest that they are prosecuted.
That being said you might get a sympathetic fiscal who is prepared to ignore this.
You should simply write to your local PF including as many details as possible about the incident, include the PF reference, it will by on your boyfriend's bail papers and will start with two letters then 8 numbers, 08 for 2008, 09 for 2009, if you can. Exercise care with this though as he may have bail conditions not to contact you. Include as much information as you can and explain why you want the charges dropped.
As I said at the start this is unlikely to work but if you don't ask you don't get.

Hi again Peaches
You can write whatever you want. I can't tell you what to include because I don't know the circumstances, but what you suggest sounds acceptable to me.
