Legal Question

Asked on: 10/09/13, 5:32 am

A year ago my female best friend got assaulted by a man. A week ago she committed suicide and our two day trial started this week. The county attorney dismissed the case due to her being deceased. Is there anything we can do to reverse this decision and if so what?

Unfortunately, a case would be very difficult to win if there were no independent witnesses. Prosecutors have the final word on whether a case proceeds to trial.

I am sorry to hear of your troubles.

Hello. So sorry to learn of this. More facts would need to be known, of course. You may confer privately with an attorney who may interface for you. There may be other options for the heirs of the friend.
