My partner has pleaded not guilty to assault by beating. I had made statement to the police but retracted it. However the CPS have gone ahead with the case and I have been required to attend a magistrates court. I really don't want to do this but do not understand the consequences for me if I fail to attend.
I have not called the police out before.
I have since - but no statement was made.
Can you tell me the possible consequences of my not attending court as per the original question.
I am sorry but I don't understand why - apologies
However, I advised that my partner took hold of my arms had pushed me against a wall.
Nothing really just a bruised arm
No - there was no allegation the second time - it was verbal abuse.
