If you called the police in connection with an argument with your spouse, you may be experiencing very real difficult stopping the prosecution against your spouse or loved one. It can be extremely frustrating when you – as the alleged victim in the domestic violence case – cannot stop the prosecution. However, there are things that you can do.
In this video, criminal defense lawyer Ben Sessions discusses some of the steps that you, as the spouse in a domestic violence case, can take to attempt to stop the prosecution of a domestic violence case.
If you intend to stop the prosecution of your spouse in a family violence case prior to a trial, you will need to be proactive and engage in the process with the prosecutor. If you do not speak with the prosecutor and express why you do not wish for the case to be prosecuted, you need to know that the case will very likely proceed to a trial and that may cause a lot of stress for you and/or your spouse.
