My boyfriend is in jail because I wrote statements on him. ( I know , I know ) I was also arrested and was let out bc I did the statements and bc I am pregnant. Well long story short, they let me out and he's still there ( 6 ms. now) They want me to testify against him, If I don't testify or show up for court will they have a case against him ? Or will they have to do a mis trial and let him go ? I know a warrant will be put out for me but it would be ALOT easier to be my case then his ( he has 13 charges I have 3) I know yall aren't lawyers or what , But I really can't talk to anybody about this. Just opinions
and nice ones please. I know this is a stupid situation.

"with no witness no case"
Nope! My dad was a lawyer for 30 years. He successfully prosecuted many, many criminals without a witness there to testify. Your statement you gave to the cops is all they need. It is extremely common for a witness to not show up. It happens all the timein situations like yours, where the witness is a friend or family member of the defendant. It happens alot too in violent crimes where the witness is scared to testify. I agree you really need to take a second look at who you picked to father your child. Is that who you want your child to turn out like? Your child is the most important person now. Also you need to understand that your boyfriend is NOT in jail because of you! He is in jail for the stupid things he did. You need to seek help from a counselor if you really believe it is your fault. Has your bf been telling you it is your fault?
