Legal Question

Asked on: 4/02/11, 11:09 am

Okay, Me my and my children's father got into a very heated argument and some things were said so we began fighting well, he began fighting me. He left and packed his things, because I had called the cops. He took my phone and hung up, but i still about 5 hours later my friend came over and let me use her phone to call them. My intentions were just to document what he had did, so my friend said just file a report. So i called 911 and ask could i just file a report, she said yes and sent some police to my house. I talked to both the officers and told them a that we got to arguing and he hit me a couple times and that hit me wit his fist and they saw my lip was bleeding. I also said he had threatend me with a gun, which was really more so not in a serious way (had no bullets, or a clip, just tried to scare me). I gave them my information and told them i didnt want to press charges because this was the first time this happened and that he was drunk and we just got very emotional with each other and that I didnt want to press charges. I even begged with the officer not to press charges but they did anyway, and sent a warrant out for his arrest. The officer said I could drop the charges, but as I began to read online its not that simple. How would I go about dropping the charges and talking to the prosecutors. Basically give me some ways I could get his charges drop or at least talk to the prosecuors about getting them dropped? I mean we both were arguing and this never happened in the past and I didnt tell the cops that i got the bloody lip from when i was trying to push him back, but instead tripped on some clothes in the floor and fell on the floor (my teeth had cut my lip) I think the police just wrote it down ass if he just up and beat me, because my lip was bleeding. Another thing the officers didnt even take pictures, they just wrote down what they saw. Oh yea, I live in georgia
