My husband was arrested Monday night for assault 4 dv and

My husband was arrested Monday night for assault 4 dv and unlawful imprisonment dv. I was contacted by an advocate. I told her there was no reason he should have been arrested because he did not hurt me physically, mentally nor did he imprison me. He went before a judge on Tuesday. He was released and sent home with a piece of paper that stated he was released from jail and that if a complaint is filed with Snohomish county district court by 5 pm on May 17, 2017 the conditions of release including bail shall remain. If a complaint is not filed by the required date and time then the defendant shall be released from jail, and all conditions of release shall be exonerated and be of no further effect. I don't understand what this means. He wasn't given a court date only this Provisional Order Setting Bail or Conditions of release. Do we need an attorney?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: State of Washington. Monday, May 15, 2017JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I don't know what type of lawyer I would need or if we need one. That is one of my questions I needed an answer for.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of.

My question: Is there any statute of limitation for either the illegal construction or the reckless endangerment?
