Getting Charges Dropped in Pennsylvania

Can your accuser get the charges against you dismissed?


In domestic violence cases, it is common for an accuser to later recant testimony in an attempt to “make the charges go away.” If your accuser no longer wants you to be prosecuted, he or she can make this known to the district attorney’s office. But the prosecutor has sole discretion to decide whether to pursue criminal charges against you.
