Frequently Asked Criminal Charges Questions in Middlesex County

FAQ: What happens if the person who accused me of a crime no longer wants to testify or pursue charges?

If the accuser decides he or she no longer wants to cooperate with police or prosecutors, in many cases, the prosecutor decides to drop the charges, especially if the accuser is the primary source of evidence or if the accuser retracts or changes the details of his or her accusation. However, the prosecutor may decide to continue pursuing the charges if the state has other independent evidence of your guilt. The prosecutor may also decide to continue certain kinds of cases, including those involving sexual assault or domestic violence, even when the complaining witness no longer wishes to participate.

FAQ: Should I take the plea bargain I was offered?

You should never accept a plea bargain you are offered by the prosecution without first speaking with an experienced criminal defense attorney. An attorney can evaluate your case to determine the strength of the state’s evidence — the attorney may determine that you stand a fair chance of dismissal of your charges after a motion or of an acquittal at trial. Or an attorney may determine that there is room to negotiate an even more favorable plea bargain with the state.
