I am sorry to hear this.

Do the counts of mischief relate to the domestic assault?

I am a senior lawyer in Ontario and am going to give you an accurate and also honest answer. There is not much likelihood that they will agree to drop the charges. You didn't charge your boyfriend. The police did and that is because they had reasonable grounds for believing that these offences occurred and the Crown believes that the court will convict your boyfriend.

You can certainly tell the Crown that you are not afraid of your boyfriend and that you would like the charges dropped and perhaps your boyfriend can say he wants to take an anger management course and/or go for therapy.

But really that is all you can do. It may help your boyfriend letting the Crown know this but you really have no say.

I wish I could have given you a more optimistic answer.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
