Once the state gets involved in a domestic incident, the case no longer belongs to the victim. It belongs to the prosecutor who can go forward with the case, even over the wishes of the complainant. So, in order to get the charges dropped, you need to talk to the prosecutor who is handling the case and try to convince him or her to drop the charges.

How do you do that? It's not easy, because prosecutors take domestic violence matters very seriously. It all comes down to trying to get the prosecutor to see that he never hurt you, never even touched you, and that you are not fearful for your safety and that there would be no risk to you if the state dropped the case.

If the prosecutor is unconvinced, you need to talk to your boyfriend's lawyer and let him know you want this matter dropped but that the prosecutor won't do it. Ask him what you can do to help him get these charges dropped.

In my experience, once the victim and the defense lawyer start double-teaming the prosecutor to drop charges, some kind of favorable resolution to the case will be worked out.
