  • Do I Need To Attend My Courtdate? Virginia

    I have a court date that I'm supposed to attend on Monday January 22, 2007. The case is the state of VA vs. My husband. Im supposed to be a witness and testify against him in a domestic violence case. Im not the one who is pressing charges, however. I would like him to be punished, but not that harshly (ie, jail time) because he is the sole provider of our family. My question is if I dont show up what reprocussions will happen to me? Will it just be posponed? Will he get a lesser sentence if Im not there to testify? Thanks in advance.
