Since your heusband was arrested he should have had a lawyer appointed for him if he cannot afford one - tell the court he can't afford a lawyer and the free lawyer they appoint for you will be able to guide your husband through this mess. Meantime, get him into a program - state laws don't mess around with drunk drivers anymore and this can end his career and ruin your family. So now is the time to put an end to it!
All the best,
