Friends daughter was arrested for being under the influence

Friends daughter was arrested for being under the influence (drunk driving), carrying a concealed weapon (a switchblade, I assume lockable in its open position), brandishing the weapon, and then threatening the guys who were apparently harassing her.Have read on the internet that her emotional reasons for at least two of these allegations matter to a jury.But we'd like to know what happens at the "pre-trial" and what are her options? Also is there any chance she will be let go with a warning? Somehow, we doubt this, but are the charges likely to be limited to misdemeanors?Any other advice besides hire an attorney sooner rather than latter so that there's time to talk things over with the prosecutor to hopefully reach some sort of an agreement prior to trial?

There is an ongoing open case/investigation with the local

There is an ongoing open case/investigation with the local sheriff's department in California for going on 5 months now for a possible statutory rape. It was brought to their attention because the alleged perpetrator (30 at the time, now 31) and victim were discovered together by university police in a vehicle at the alleged victims college. She was 18 at the time and is now 19. University police sent in a report to the sheriff's department to have them investigate further. The sheriff's department conducted one interview with the alleged perpetrator about a month after they started their investigation but there has been no developments since. The two are still romantically involved and intent to be moving forward.As previously stated the alleged victim and her parents have no interest in pursuing charges. The alleged perpetrator's wife (soon to be ex wife) however does want there to be charges. She wants the husband to get into trouble and claims she will make a report with the sheriff's office but has yet to do so. She is using this situation as leverage to try and get full child custody, child support, etc.What power does the wife have in this situation in regards ***** ***** statutory rape investigation? Can she be enough to get charges brought? If there is no other evidence can her word be enough to potentially lead to conviction since it seems there would be no way to conclusively prove penetration?Since the investigation has no concrete date to potentially charge from would they by default push the beginning of the statute of limitations to the 21st birthday of the alleged victim?If the alleged perpetrator and victim move in with each other does this change anything? Marriage of the two change anything? If they move to a neighboring state would that affect the clock on the statute of limitations?Anything else that one should consider in this scenario?
