Legal Question

Asked on: 7/24/09, 2:39 pm

Hi. Im being charged with domestic violence and my lawyer suggested a bench trial because if she doesn't show up it will get dismissed due to my right to question my accuser, but their is another witness, my neighbor, who told police she seen me grab her arm but not hit her. I actually was the one to call police and was holding her so she wouldn't keep hitting me- so self defense- I thought. Anyways if the victim doesn't show up but the witness does, can I still file a motion to dismiss because of not questioning my accuser?
