A: Although not automatic, in most situations in which there is a minor accident, if the party who witnessed the accident and whose property was damaged does not appear, the prosecutor will dismiss the charges.

A: They only way the case could be dismissed is if the matter is set for trial on this next court date and the complaining witness does not appear in court. If the matter is not set for trial, the complaining witness does not have to appear in court in Will County.
