Kiele Linroth Pace's answer No. Only the prosecutor can dismiss a criminal case. The alleged victim can let the prosecutor know that they HOPE the case will be dismissed and/or that they don't want to testify in court.... but the decision about whether or not to dismiss belongs to the prosecutor, not the alleged victim.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Yes, provided you comply with all other laws. The State AG has the opinion that Felons cannot own Muzzleloaders, but this is contrary to all Statutes and Caselaw. If someone was prosecuted for Possession of a Muzzleloader only (which is doubtful), The Courts would dismiss it if the defendant challenged it with a decent attorney. Contact the NRA to refer a competent attorney to you for a consultation on what you can and cannot have as a Felon.

And between 16-18 he would still be at some risk of being charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, though that risk is not nearly as serious as being labeled a sex offender as he could be before you turn 16. Ultimately, it’s up to you two decide if you’re going to be together.

Kristen Epifania's answer A sentencing hearing can be moved for many reasons - for example, the Judge's calendar has a conflict or an attorney involved in the case needs to reschedule for their own reasons.
