Can I drop charges?

Charges are brought on by Law Enforcement and the prosecuting attorney working together. Crimes are committed against the victim, but also the community. Thus, the State of Michigan presses chares, leaving that burden on the prosecutors. The victim's opinions are important but ultimately it is the prosecutor's decision.
