A) Depends on that states laws. B) Why in the world would a victim lie and say they were not touched? Victim implies they were hurt. So, I am guessing the person taking abuse is willing to allow themselves to be beaten again. Problem is, unless the victim lets the bad person stay in jail...they will hurt the victim again and then on to the next person they can beat up. What many abused people forget is...these bad people WILL do it to another person. Someone has to stop them and if this victim want's to bail the jerk out now...anything this douche does after this is on the victims head. Tell this victim to leave the douche in jail.
If you get arrested for domestic violence and you are on probation and the victims that it is possible to be released. This is because there would be no case since the victim has said that meaning there will be no evidence even when you appear in court.
First of all sunshine Shelly does not know what she's talking about...if the person is on probation already and picks up a domestic violence most likely he's not gonna get out of jail because he violated his probation...now, the D.A. No longer needs the victim to pursue charges...they can go off the police reports and pictures...the best thing to do, if the victim wishes...is to not show up at court PERIOD...also sometimes people make mistakes and should not be judged so quickly...and there is nothing wrong with the victim forgiving the suspect...nobody knows all the circumstances to begin with!!!! The only douche bags are the ones that are quick to judge!!! To end this if the victim "doesn't" show up then there's "NO" case...and if there is no case then there is NO violation!!!!
