The day of trial the case was dropped. The girlfriend never showed up (as we suspected she wouldn’t) so the prosecutors dropped the case.
Rob was afraid that his bond would be revoked, that the prosecutor would have it out for him since he violated the no contact order, and that he would face jail time.
Rob S. was out on bond for a domestic violence battery charge when he was arrested for violating a no contact order the night before the order was supposed to be lifted. Rob had texted his girlfriend (the person whom the no contact order prevented him from contacting) to tell her he wanted to stop by the house to pick up his stuff. She told him it wasn’t a good idea, but Rob went to her house in Cooper City, Florida anyway. After several minutes of talking through the front door, she agreed to let him inside to pick up his stuff, but told him he had to leave immediately afterwards. Once Rob entered the house, he refused to leave. His girlfriend did not want to get into an argument and so she got in her car to leave. Rob jumped on the front hood to prevent her from driving away. She turned the wheel and drove away. Later that night she called the police because Rob returned to her house and stuck his head inside the doggie door in order to talk to her. Police arrived and arrested Rob for violating the no contact order.
We pushed forward to trial. We spoke with the girlfriend and she was already in a new relationship and wanted nothing to do with Rob. She didn’t want to be deposed, nor did she want anything to do with the case.
