Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to help if I can. Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct any necessary research, and type a response. Thank you.
I strongly recommend that your husband retain an attorney. You mentioned several issues with your husband that could be considered mitigating factors, and may relieve him of some culpability. At the least, an attorney may be able to get the charges reduced and the sentence reduced. It is foolish, in my opinion, to plead guilty without any sort of deal worked out.
So, considering how little time you have, I would start calling local criminal defense attorney tomorrow morning. I consider this imperative. I would start by using the Minnesota Attorney Referral Service: http://www.mnbar.org/member-directory/find-a-lawyer
If you can't get a referral immediately that day which results in a consultation that day, then use google to find attorneys in your county. If you leave any messages, be sure to tell them that there is a trial or hearing on Tuesday, and so it's imperative to retain the attorney immediately.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
