My question involves criminal law for the state of: NY
Me and my wife got in to a heated arguement. I pushed her and she pushed me. we ripped each other clothes and i left. Out of anger she called the cops. Didnt think they would lock me up. She gave a biased statement and signed it. Weeks later i get a call that i was going to have to get charged. She couldnt beleive it and begged the detective to let it go. He told us becuase it was already innitated there was nothing that could be done. I went in to get arrested and got charged. They sent my wife a letter basically supporting the case. She didnt sign it and called requesting they drop the charges. My questions is if all they have is a statement and no supporting depposition will the da bluf trial and let the clock run out. They know my wife doesnt want to persue charges. Or will they try to move forward anyway.
the charges are attempted assault, harassing with physical conduct and menacing. They told my wife they do not want to persue the menacing anymore.
one lawyer told me if i go with him he will contact the da and tell them we want this dismissed and will let the clock run. They will not get the supporting deppo.
