>>You're from PA also? Well, hi there. We Pennsy folks seem to be taking
Northeast part of the state near Wilkes Barre.
>>Anyway. I thought there was a law on the books that forced the cops to
charge the perp if they abused their spouse, whether or not the spouse
I think that is correct. The abuser is still in legal hot water, but the
fact that she had not pressed charges or filed for a PFA seems to be a
factor for some resaon that I'm sure makes sense to a lawyer. Garden
variety beatings (almost a murder) that don't violate "special" laws seem
to be less serious.
