My boyfriend and I filed an incident report about my ex boyfriend chasing and hitting us with his car and I don’t wish to further the proceedings how do I go about it?
answered on Apr 24, 2021
Best to inform the detective that you do not wish to proceed any further with the case. If your ex has been arrested, it gets a little more complicated as resources have been expended. If you gave a sworn verbal or written statement, law enforcement or the prosecutor may pressure you, especially... Read more »

That is up to Pennsylvania. I suggest you contact a criminal defense attorney in the county in Pennsylvania where the warrant was issued. You may be able to resolve this remotely. Good luck!

It would not be the job of the lawyer who represented the Defendant to do anything. It would be up to the recipient of the restitution to file a claim for the unpaid amount against the Defendant's estate.
My wife gave my dog to someone to care for it while I was sick and now he wont give it back - I have ownership papers so can I file a police report as I feel he has stolen my dog?
