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?

Video Transcription:

The short answer is no. An alleged victim by herself drop charges. However, having said that, they certainly can assist you in the preparation of your defense. In the event that we have a cooperative victim, certain documents can be prepared and tendered to the state attorney’s office in an effort to either get the charges reduced or dismissed. The answer to the question is no. However, in the event that you have a victim who is no longer seeking to prosecute, that can go a very long way.
