Accused of sexual abuse
Ask a Lawyer
QuestionCountry: United States of America
My girlfriends daughter has accused me of sexually abusing her. I was charged and put in prison. My trial is coming up next week. This girl has since changed her story and said nothing happened. I was told that it will do no good for her to get on the stand and say nothing happened because her testimony can be impeached and her original statement can be used. My public defender wants her to not show up for the trial. She is willing to do this. My question is will the charges be dropped? Can the trial be continued and if so for how long?
