My wife got me arrested charge, (which is a totally false
My wife got me arrested for DV charge, (which is a totally false allegation) in Brooklyn NY. She signed a waiver of prosecution. but the DA offered my lawyer an ACD with a full order of protection. Also she is saying she needs a full order but has been calling me. I did not respond and did tell my lawyer. She told the DA that she won't call again but she is upset and is thinking about revoking the waiver. Can she revoke what she signed? Also I have zero priors and extremely worried that a DV and OOP will stop me from getting good jobs. I want this whole thing exspunged/sealed so that i can go on with my life. I believe she is doing this to get a greencard through VAWA. Please advise

My relative was arrested yesterday (total around $150). She
My relative was arrested yesterday for shoplifting (total around $150). She is not poor at all and had no reason to steal but she went to the store picked up few items she liked wanted to pay for it but out of a sudden decided to press the elevator button to go out instead of going to the cash register which is just next to (after) the elevator with the items in her bag. She is an immigrant student (experienced professional outside the US) works part time and lives with her sister so no personal expenses at all. Her sister is paying her college fee too that she will have to return with no deadline, so no interest no stress of paying high interest an deadline. Its unbelievable what happened there.She could have walked to the cash register (that she told she was planning to with items in her bag....) after she prssed the elevator button she wanted to fix her thought of leaving and then pay for the items and then leave but before she could do that tore security folks came by and asked her to come with them. When she told them she was going to pay for the items they didn't believe and sad she was lying. They also said they have on Camara that she shoplifted in April. Not sure if that happened or if they have that coverage that shows clearly she left without paying or they are just saying that. She had 4 tops and 2 dresses in the bag... I am sure she would have paid...she also said she was going up at the entrance to meet her sister as she was coming to the store to see the items she had selected with the baby and there is no cell phone signal at all in the store. She was shocked when she saw police their in 5 minutes and they didn't let her call her sister. They arrested her and told her she will have to go the police station first and then only she can call anyone. So this was all the bizzare incident.She is an immigrant student spending loads of money on her masters doing a part time job at the same university, no reason for stealing, what would you suggest should be the next step. She was released in less than 2 hours with a desk appearance ticket for Aug 11th. I she is found or proved guilty it's going to impact her whole life negatively and all the effort and hard work she has done till date will go waste due to this incident. This obviously is a first time arrest and we are hoping to get a dismissal and sealing of records so that this doesn't show up on her background check while applying for jobs or green card etc. Please suggest the best way to get the dismissal and sealing of record as if never happened.This has to be sealed/ plunged (not allowed in NYC) so sealed else her life is ruined. need detailed response / help ASAP with step by step process we should follow and anything you want to tell us to make the case stronger for dismissal.
