What if I do not want to press charges?

You do not press charges.  The charges are filed by law enforcement and prosecuted by our office.  If you are reluctant to testify, it is very important to speak with the prosecuting attorney and victim witness staff who can advocate on your behalf.  Tell them about your concerns, so that they can be addressed early on.  We may be able to clarify misconceptions and offer choices.
