No, because you just gave details that support that probable cause has been met. However, you may have a solid defense to the charges based upon your comments. Speak to your attorney about obtaining the security footage from the courthouse.

It could be all of the above or none of the above. The answer comes down to the specific details of the case. You need to sit down with your attorney to discuss your past cases and well as your newest case. Maybe there is something that happened in the past that can help you now.

Q: Good or bad idea to meet with ada to prevent charges in dv case?

ADA wants to meet with me, the "victim" of domestic violence to prevent charges before court. Will this help or hinder? Can't I just fax a statement on my boyfriend's behalf? They said no, but I don't see why not. Also, if I don't show up for court, can they file charges anyway?

Keegan Kelley Harroz answered on Apr 12, 2018

A District Attorney is law enforcement. You should never speak to a prosecutor without an attorney present. Do you really want to risk admitting to a crime yourself and being charged as a result?

Q: I called police on my bf. He was arrested for dv ab. Can I drop charges?

He and I fought after drinking too much. I called the police. He was arrested. He has not been to see a judge yet. How do I get charges dropped?

Keegan Kelley Harroz answered on Apr 10, 2018

You will have to hire an attorney to represent your boyfriend. Once the police have been called it is out of your hands. The prosecutor will pursue the charges even if you want to drop them. It will take you cooperating with your boyfriends attorney to obtain a dismissal of the charges.

It is not, however you should contact the other party to advise they have no consent to access your private accounts. You should also seek to protect those accounts. Should those accounts be accessed, it can constitute an illegal “hacking,” and you should file a police report immediately.
