3 Questions Answered

Q. Me and my fiance had an argument that turned phyiscal. and i was charged with agg assult, she is not going to press
A: The short answer to your question is "I don't know." Criminal charges are brought by the State of Tennessee and not by the victim. Accordingly, charges will say "State of Tennessee v. John Doe." If the victim decides that he/she doesn't want to pursue charges, the State can still move forward with criminal action. In reality though, the assistance and cooperation of the alleged victim can often be essential to the State's case, and prosecutors may be reluctant to move forward without the victim's willing cooperation. Ultimately, the decision to pursue the case against a defendant will be up to the local District Attorney's office.
Q. What is the SOL for repayment of back taxes to the IRS?
A: Generally speaking, the IRS has 10 years from the date of assessment to collect taxes owed [See IRC Sec. 6502(a)]. However, this 10-year period can be suspended for a variety of reasons, including bankruptcy, collection due process hearings, litigation, and offers in compromise, among others. You can obtain a transcript from the IRS to more accurately determine the date that your tax was assessed, which will be the date the 10-year clock begins to run.
Q. If I the victim drop the criminal charges what will happen charges are aggravated assault and resisting arrest the
A: Criminal charges are brought by the State of Tennessee and not by the victim. Accordingly, charges will say "State of Tennessee v. John Doe." If the victim decides that he/she doesn't want to pursue charges, the State can still move forward with criminal action. In reality though, the assistance and cooperation of the alleged victim can often be essential to the State's case, and prosecutors may be reluctant to move forward without the victim's willing cooperation.
