I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of criminal law experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today.

In this situation, the prosecutor has the discretion to proceed forward with charges, based on the nature of the complaint, even if you request the charges be dropped. That said, it is hard to prosecute when you don't have a witness for which the charge emanates.

You need to set up a meeting with the prosecutor to which the case is assigned. An in person meeting normally does the trick. You need to give him or her a written request that is signed by you in which you formally request that the charges be dropped and in which you state that you will not be a witness in any prosecution. Respectfully ***** ***** they observe your request for privacy as you work out this very personal matter.

That is about all you can do, but that should be enough.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Please also rate my answer positively.

Best wishes going forward!

If I do meet with the prosecutor, etc does he need to turn himself in and get booked, etc? There's the possibility of losing his medical license
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He's wanting to avoid that whole process due to questions asked to renew medical license and active warrant.
Expert:  Delta-Lawyer replied 1 year ago.

No, you should go in by yourself. If he goes in, there is a good chance he gets detained, booked, etc. If that were to happen, even if the charges are dismissed later, it can affect his record and thus his license. You need to do this by yourself, without him being present.

I am sorry it took me a while to respond. I was away from my desk.
