Individual citizens of Hubbard County are not clients of the Hubbard County Attorney’s Office and must obtain other counsel/attorneys to receive legal advice.

I am a victim of a crime. Can I drop criminal charges against my aggressor?
The decision to charge or drop charges in a criminal case is made by the prosecutor. The victim has a right to let the prosecutor know their feelings and position regarding the charge(s). However, the victim’s wishes alone do not decide if a case will be filed or dismissed.
