I was hit and filed assault and battery, I was not able to drop charges afterwards. If I don't go to court will I get in trouble?
I was in an argument with my boyfriend's mom. She swung at me. I blocked her but she still hit my arm, I filed charges. I'm leaving state and haven't even been served yet but I 'want to go to court.
What people do not understand is that once they invite the law into their lives, they cannot say "never mind" when it no longer interests them to proceed. The bottom line is that you should not invite the law in unless you plan to follow through with what you began.
