    Default dropped charges

    Once the state of Wi. has the charge it cannot be dropped, felony or misd. Unless of course your on the packers football team. They seem to get a lot of stuff dropped these days. Not fare.

    A prosecutor can ordinarily proceed with a felony charge regardless of the victim's desire to drop the charge.

    Ok, then in your best estimate what am I looking at ? They said something about charges being lowered to a misdemeaner. I pled not guilty and they appointed a lawyer to me. I dont see him untill April 15. I am a 38 yr old mother of 5. Never ever done anything against the law. I fell on desperate times and couldnt pay my bills. Since then I have paid all that I took back. Except they believe I took more than I did. My home went into forecloser trying to pay back what I owed. Also the detective on my case was nice enough to let me know that a warrant was out for my arrest and I turned myself in, will that help any? Do you think they might offer a plea bargain? not sleeping and worried myself sick. I have 2 young girls at home and hate the thought of being seperated from them for any length of time. My pre trial isnt untill June 5th and I really dont think I can make it untill then.
