For my story a cop is on patrol, and while on doing so, he comes across what looks like to be a kidnapping in progress. He stops the kidnapping from happening. He rescues the victim and arrests one of them, but the rest get away. The victim does not want to testify though and wishes to not press charges. Because of this, the prosecutor feels that without her testimony, he can either subpoena her although she is very uncooperative, or he can drop the case. I wanted to write it so that he doesn't have enough of a case, but I was told by a reader so far that it's a plot hole. He says that the prosecutor does not need the victim's testimony, and they would go ahead with a case, using the cop's testimony only. But is one cop's testimony enough, to convict someone for attempted kidnapping, even though the victim is willing to come forth? Wouldn't the court, or a jury, want to hear from the victim, rather than just saying she was, without any claims from her to support it? Is it really a plot hole, and there still is enough of a case from the cop's testimony alone?
