Domestic Violence (DV) victims often want to drop the charges later. In Boulder, Longmont, Broomfield, Weld, Greeley, Larimer, Fort Collins, Loveland, Adams, Brighton, Jefferson, Golden, and other Colorado counties, the prosecution will not dismiss the charges upon request. The prosecution will try to talk the victim out of dismissing the Domestic Violence (DV) charge. The prosecutor will then look at the Domestic Violence (DV) victim as a recanting victim that told the truth to the police, but now is suffering from victim guilt due to the cycle of violence.
