City of West Allis, Wisconsin Spouse received a citation for

City of West Allis, WisconsinSpouse received a citation for DC with a weapon. He pleaded not guilty and has already met with the Assistant DA where it was not resolved. A trial date has been set.Asst DA refused to give any more than five minutes of her time. Told him she had too many other people to see, said "end of discussion" and walked out.Spouse cannot afford an attorney for a trial. He is on disability. I work though, so not sure if we would qualify for a free public defender or something like that.What should he do now? Since a trial date has been set and I am told that the date cannot be changed because they now have already started the process of sending out summons to the officers and other parties. What if other parties do not show up? Is it too late to just pay the original citation and make this go away?

I am being accused of assault. During my investigation, the

I am being accused of sexual assault.During my investigation, the CID prosecutor lied to my Defense Attorney by assuring him that my DNA (semen) was found inside the "victim's" vagina. WHICH I knew wasn't true because I did not have sex with the “victim”, but it drove me CRAZY for a long time making my days very difficult to cope with work and my personal life. I couldn't stop thinking about how it was possible, why the “results” concluded that, etc.; it took a toll on me psychologically. Almost a month later, charges were given to me and in the packet the DNA results came back saying that my DNA was found on her neck NOT in her intimate area.Is it legal for her to lie about the evidence? Can I use that against her weather it can help me on my case or not. To me it shows that she is taking my case personal and is willing to lie about anything on my case in order to “win” the case opposed to her finding the truth and conducting herself in an ethical and legal manner. Article 32 will be scheduled in a few days.There is a video proving that she is lying all throughout her statement. In the 32, if the incident proves it was consensual, would court martial still be sought since her statement says she “was sleeping and wasn't consensual”?

I am a adult in San Diego & I was charged with a Drug DUI

I am a young adult in San Diego & I was charged with a Drug DUI after being involved in an accident with one other vehicle late last month. Before that incident I consumed a beverage that was spiked without my knowledge after I met someone from a dating platform. The profile has been deleted & I am still in the process of recovering this person's information. My trial meanwhile has been postponed for late October & my hearing has also been rescheduled for September for more "discovery" time. I have plead "not guilty".In regards ***** ***** actual accident, the couple who were in the other vehicle did not experience "serious injury"according to the prosecutor during the arraignment & again during my first hearing. The couple's insurance company also stated that the couple made a hospital visit but they were only diagnosed with "minor skin infraction" according to doctor's note. My arraignment bail was reduced from $100k to $20k & my arraignment defender said my charge was initially considered a "felony" but my blank criminal record & other circumstances will more than likely render this charge as a "misdemeanor".I am aware that there are 3 witnesses stated in my copy of police report & they allegedly saw me "swerving" before the accident happened at an intersection & according to an officer I did not pass field sobriety (I am actually disputing his claim along with his professionalism/verbal conduct). I kept silent in police custody in accordance to miranda rights (I was not told them either) & went along with taking a blood test & served a day in county jail before bailing.For now, I haven't been notified of any blood result but I would like to know what sort of "worse-case scenario" sentence could I face for a Drug DUI charge (non-alcohol) if I won't be able to prove that I was intoxicated without my consent? I do not even know what substance police allege I was on. I do not have a criminal record & this could be my first ever offense. I am especially concerned about having to serve a jail sentence.The court offices & public defender are very slow in providing me information I need to determine what I have to do to win this case or get a plea. I appreciate any reply.Thank you
