Is there any law or statute that prevents a federal court from keeping a defendant on bail with ankle monitoring for a certain period of time? I have been on ankle monitoring for over 8 months and the case is not even at trial yet after I have spent over 1 year in Jail before indictment... Is there any law or statute that prevents such indefinite ankle monitoring/home confinement while on bail. This case is in the District of New Jersey.

My wife is being prosecuted in County District Court. She

My wife is being prosecuted for DV4 in King County District Court. She was drunk at the time of the offence. After her arrest, she voluntarily attended a 60 day inpatient treatment program. While i initially welcomed the state's involvement, i now regret it. At the time of her arrest, the state ssid it felt compelled to protect my dog and I from harm. I hired a defense attorney for my wife. While initially helpful, the attorney's MO of late has been to threaten me with allegations of infidelity to justify my wife's behavior. This led to me making a statement to the prosecutor that, albeit true, was unhelpful to my wife's defense. My wife stands to see her entire career washed down the drain if the charge is upheld. While her attorney wanted a plea, at the suggestion of friends and family she opted for jury trial. Recently the prosecutor's office left a voicemail adding if i still wanted to pursue the matter. I reached them by phone and stated unequivocally that I no longer feel endangered and that pursuing the charges would do more harm to my wife's recovery than good. I asked the state to drop the charges. Since then I have heard nothing, yet received a subpoena to testify in court next week. Will I be compelled to to testify against my wife when I think the whole matter should be thrown out? What are my options?
