As the victim of an alleged aggravated battery can I discuss with the state attorney to not go through with the charges against my fiancé?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes you can. As the alleged victim, Florida law provides you with the right to provide input and to be heard. You are absolutely allowed to tell the state that you do. It want to go through with prosecution against your fiancé. However, the right to provide input does not guarantee that the State will do exactly what you want. When a person asks the State to drop charges, the prosecutor often considers the reasons why before making a decision to proceed or dismiss the case. So even though you can certainly discuss the charges with the State and whether you want them to prosecute your fiancé, the prosecutor has the final decision.
