I am sorry to hear this.
This is a serious issue and the consequences are very serious as you can face deportation. So it is vital that you retain a criminal lawyer.
If your spouse wants to tell the Crown that he doesn't want you to be convicted that may help but your spouse didn't charge you rather the police did and they did so because they believe you committed an offence so it is not up to your spouse.So the charges are not up to him.
Please retain a lawyer so you can have the best possible defence put forward for you.
