2 Questions Answered

Q. In mn if a man is arrested for dv but the victim doesnt show will charges be dropped
A: It really depends. If the alleged victim was served a subpoena to be at court for the trial, some prosecutors will actually ask for a warrant to be issued for the alleged victim.
Q. My friend lied to the police about a domestic assault and is turning herself in for it. What will happen to her?
A: She will be facing a charge of filing a false police report. That charge is a gross misdemeanor in Minnesota. It is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $3000 fine. However, if this is a first offense for her, it would be highly unlikely she would serve any jail time. Mark Arneson 612-465-8581
