Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
I certainly understand your situation and concern. The crime of domestic violence is against the State of Colorado. The State has the decision if charges should be filed and if the case should be prosecuted. You, are the victim and the State represents your legal interest. Of course, you can speak with the prosecutor assigned to the case and advise/request that the charges be dropped and they do not proceed against your boyfriend. However, the final decision is up to them. Often times, their office has a "no drop" policy, for cases like this. In addition, their ability to proceed depends entirely on you and your cooperation with them. If you fail to cooperate and/or fail to appear at trial
to testify against him, the State will not be able to proceed. There will be nobody to testify as to what happened and it would only be the word of your boyfriend, who/which the jury has to rely on. As such, the State could not proceed in good faith and fail to meet their burden of proof, which is beyond a reasonable doubt. You can certainly express your concern to them but if they see you have no interest or desire to see him prosecuted, they may not go forward.
