This in essence means once charged with domestic violence, it is no longer in the hands of the alleged victim to pursue the charges, but rather a unilateral decision by a prosecutor. Many times, the accuser makes an allegation out of anger, jealousy or ill will and later wishes to withdraw the allegation, but by then it is simply too late.
