What is the name of your state? CA
I just want to know if I can drop criminal charges for grand theft. I was the victim of my computer stolen. I got it back though, by the person who is now in jail. He called me to tell me he knew who had the computer and assisted in getting my computer back to me. He did this is good faith, but unfortanetly was the prime suspect and is now being charged with grand theft. I have no relations to him and would like to drop the charges of grand theft. I spoke with the DA and she says that once charges are put down they cannot be dropped. However, I dont feel this is right cause my name appears as the person bringing forth these charges. My question is: In a felony, criminal case, can the victim drop the charges if requested?
