My girlfriend and I got in a fight and I hit her. We made up and are back together. Can she just drop the charges?
No, one person cannot alone drop the charges in a criminal case because it’s up to the State of Florida whether they wish to proceed with a case or not. The prosecution can proceed with a case, even against the wishes of an alleged victim in a case.
That said, the alleged victim in a case may wish to contact the prosecution and fill out an affidavit or a form that the State Attorney’s office may have, stating that they don’t wish to prosecute, which will be taken into account by the State Attorney’s office in most cases.
