3 months ago my ex partner was charged with 4 cases of section 39 assault. at the time, i did not want to press charges but i was talked into it and ended up going through with it. i was told that they will deal with it and let me know the outcomes. for 3 months I did not hear anything so i assumed the case was dropped and that was it. which i was happy about as I realised it was not something i initially wanted to be involved with. however, just to be sure 2 weeks ago - i called the domestic violence unit and they told me that i had a court hearing. I was not informed of this and only found out when i called in myself. This is something I do not want tobe a part of. I made it clear that i do not want to attend court and stand there and go through all of it again. I want the charges to be dropped as I had not seen my partner since it happened and i was happy with how things were going in my life. However, I was told that despite me writing a retracting statement, I might be summoned to court and if i don't attend i can be arrested. I want to know what I can do about this, and I do not want to go to court at all and I'm not sure what the legal system is. Please advise.
Thank you for your response. I have a couple of questions regarding writing a letter to the court. How do I go about directly writing to the court, can i ask the PC who is dealing with me for the details of court or could this not work in my favour. and I do not have his solicitors details either, and once again how do I find this out too?
