To coin an old phrase: "Oh, what a tangled web we weave. When first we practice to deceive". Both you and your boyfriend are in need of separate attorneys to represent you. Your boyfriend is looking at minimum of 16 months to 3 years in state prison based on those charges and most likely a lot more. You could receive a county jail sentence of up to 1 year for filing a false police report which is a misdemeanor. Good luck.

Nothing you can do. It's out of your hands. Prosecutors will never drop charges just because the victim has had a change of heart/story. The fact is, in 95% of all DV cases the parties reconcile, and prosecutors are well aware of this. He needs a good lawyer.
