@maxdancona,
Let me say this as clearly as possible.

The defendant should get the best lawyer he or she can pay for. I was accused of a crime once... having a competent lawyer made all the difference. A good lawyer knows what facts are important and how to get them considered. I found a good lawyer, gave over all of my information, answered any questions the lawyer had, and then sat back and let the lawyer do the work.

All I had to do is show up in court in my best suit, I didn't even have to speak. In my case the judge ruled from the bench, dismissing all charges. I was shocked that it was so easy... I had to turn to the lawyer and ask "did we just win?". He smiled and nodded and told me not to celebrate until we got out of the courtroom.

A criminal court is not a place for amateurs. The stakes are too high.

@maxdancona,
I agree completely. It isn't worth risking. Best bet is to get a good lawyer and allow them to handle it.

As far as to why someone wouldn't get medical help - I don't know. Most reasonable people would. I'd venture to guess this person is an idiot or hiding something.

@Linkat,
I agree, this victim is hiding the truth that the suspect never did this.

@jmr1972,
The alleged victim has her own version of the story. Her story probably has some fairly plausible reason she didn't seek medical help. If she didn't have some reason, the prosecutor would never take up the case. There are always two sides to any story.

I was able to read the story that the alleged victim in my case was telling. It was part of the paperwork that was exchanged by the lawyers before the trial. I assume the defendant can get a copy of the prosecution narrative in this case.

Again... the defendant really should leave this to the lawyer.

@maxdancona,
Not true, the charges can be filed directly which means that the state attorney picks up where the police ended the investigation. If the alleged victim lied to the police on knowing where the suspect lives, then the police have to file direct charges and that's what happened. Also, the suspect was released on bond and put on an ankle monitor. Plus, the victim stated that the suspect kidnapped the victim, hog tied the victim and left the victim in an abandoned building while on the ankle monitor. The judge on the case ordered the ankle monitor off because of the data being inconsistence with what the victim stated to the state attorney. Plus, the victim also called up the jail system and stated that the suspect was calling up the victim and making threats when they looked into it, the lieutenant believed the suspect over the victim when the suspect stated that the victim is lying. The call records proved the suspect did not call the victim.

There is also another question; if you were afraid of this person, would you send your contact information to him/her asking the suspect to call you because the two of you need to talk?

It looks like this victim wants revenge on the suspect and the victim is getting his/her way so far.

@jmr1972,
Again, I suggest that the suspect get a good lawyer and listen to what that lawyer says.

I have never been an alleged victim, I can't very well put myself in an alleged victims state of mind.

It seems to me that it will be up to the suspect's lawyer to poke holes in the alleged victims story. That is the lawyer's job and it is why they make the big bucks. If this goes to court, the suspect's lawyer gets to cross-examine the alleged victim. The alleged victim will have to explain all of the inconsistencies in his or her story.

It sounds to me like you are trying to play lawyer here. We keep advising you against that.

If you are wanting someone to agree with you that sometimes alleged victims are vengeful jerks... yes we agree with you. If you are looking for legal strategy in what sounds like a pretty heavy criminal case, you should really consult a lawyer.

Well, there is now a forensic specialist getting involved because of what happened. I am praying that the things will get solved in a timely manner.
