All criminal complaints are prosecuted on behalf of the People of the State of California. Only the prosecutor can issue or dismiss charges. However, the District Attorney's Office will always take the wishes of the victim into account. Please contact the District Attorney's Office if as a victim you have an opinion on the prosecution of your case that the District Attorney's Office does not already know about.
Please contact the law enforcement agency where the crime occurred. That agency is responsible for investigating domestic violence cases.
