Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, Dez Bryant, will still face criminal charges for domestic violence after allegedly slapping his mom. In mid July of this year, Bryant was arrested for Class A misdemeanor assault on a family member.  His mom later wanted to drop the charges, but it turns out, it isn't up to her.

According to ESPN, Dallas County district attorney Craig Watkins has accepted the Class A misdemeanor family violence charges from the DeSoto Police Department and the case is under review.

Bryant could receive a suspension and/or a fine if the league finds that he violated the NFL's discipline policy. The Dallas Cowboys have had no comment on the case.

Bryant is not only having a bad year outside of football, but he is not doing to well on the field either.  Through 7 games, he has 41 catches for 488 yards, with 4 touchdowns.  He has fumbled the ball 4 times (1 lost) and has had several drops in crucial situations.

The year could be getting much worse for the former Oklahoma State standout if he is convicted.

Should the prosecution seek charges even though his mom wanted to drop the charges?
