Importantly, yours is the wrong question.  How can you be charged is simple, the items were found in a vehicle which you were operating.  This is probable cause to believe they were yours.  The things you state as defenses are exactly that, defenses.  They do not preclude you from being charged.  A better question is can you be convicted based on those facts.  Without a full consultation it would be impossible to answer that.   The fact that they had a search warrant on your house is troubling to say the least.  You certainly have defenses as they are no doubt using a constructive possession theory for items in the car as no one physically possessed them.  Take the time to sit down with an attorney if you haven't already and properly prepare your defense so that it can be asserted at the right time.  ...

The sexual assault laws relating to this area of law are farily complex and incest may not apply, as also sexual assault on a child. However, any unwanted 'sexual contact' (touching of breasts, buttocks, genitle area, eetc. - over or under the clothes) can be a crime and if reported to the police may lead to charges against the cousin. Charges would also carry a 'protection order' excluding him from being in contact with you and also not being in the same home as you. ... Read More

If the amount you seek from the other person is less than $7500 (in Colorado) you can pursue the case in small claims court, which is a simplified process and pretty straight forward (actually much like the TV shows - Judge Judy, People's Court, etc.). Go to your local court clerk's ofice for the forms or go to the State Court website and pull down the forms off of the "self - help" menu.  It is too bad you dropped the charges - it is always ordered that a defendant pay restitution as a part of any resolution of the case. ...

You can try but don’t be surprised if it does not work, since the charges were dismissed once. While I do not know the facts of the case your boyfriend is pursuing, you may be able to defend it claiming to be a self-defending victim, rather than an offender of DV.  You need a lawyer familiar with this option....
