Can I Be Prosecuted for Domestic Violence or Spousal Abuse if the Victim Does Not Press Charges?
Yes, you absolutely can. If your significant other does not want to press charges, people have the impression that the case will be dismissed. Well that's not the case. Prosecutors take the alleged victim out of the case and go forward on what they think they can prove, so if they feel they can prove the case without the spouse or significant other pressing charges, then the prosecution absolutely will go forward.
