If police responded to the incident, they submitted a report to the prosecutor who decides whether or not to bring forth charges based on the evidence presented to him or her. There doesn’t have to be injuries for someone to be charged with assault or domestic violence.

Q: Can i use first offenders on a burgarly charge

David S West's answer
If you have never used First Offender in any other case or any other state then you are eligible to use first offender. And burglary charges do not prevent you from getting first offender treatment. However, First Offender is discretionary, meaning that the judge gets to decide if you actually get First Offender. And having a good lawyer to argue for you getting first offender can make a huge difference. The more serious the charges, the more difficult it can be to get a judge to agree to it....

Stephen Grooms' answer
Tell your friend that talking about selling drugs isn't a crime. You have to take some step towards selling in order to charge conspiracy. And while there is no statute of limitations in South Carolina for past felony acts, the likelihood that a person is charged years later for selling drugs, unless he was selling to a CI are highly unlikely. You can always call local law enforcement and ask them to check your name for warrants. I mean your friends name.

P. Justin Thrailkill's answer
Sorry to hear about all of your troubles. You are still going to owe the arrearage. It's not going to go away. It can't. Talk to the local child support office about your employment. Make sure you send something every month towards the arrearage, even if you cannot pay the full amount. So long as you send something, that should keep you out of jail until you're able to get another job and start paying at the level you were before.

It is possible the police will go with her story and come after you. My recommendation is to retain a lawyer and get ahead of this before you leave the state. Many will bury their heads in the sand and make th assumption it will all just go away. But her report that you took her are without permission is enough to file charges.
