Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I am assuming from your question that you are asking what sentence your husband may face. If that is the case, I think it is premature, since your husband has not even been charged with anything yet.
I would strongly advise that you consult a good criminal attorney now, since that may be the best chance for making sure that your husband is not charged with anything.
I would recommend that you contact the local bar association’s lawyer referral service (they all have them) to locate a lawyer who practices criminal law in your state, since cases like this are always very fact sensitive, and there may be nuances in state or local laws that affect your situation and that only an attorney in your state would be aware of.If you want to follow up, please identify your questions in the subject line as being for “Counselor.” Although it’s not required by any means, a bonus (tip) is always appreciated if you find the answer helpful. I would also appreciate any feedback you can give me to improve the quality of my answers.Counselor
