Good afternoon. It is always best to retain legal counsel. I say this because the arrest and information is going to likely be turned over to the State and assigned to a case filer, to determine if/what should be charged and what can be charged. If your husband does not want to proceed and cooperate and there are issues, your attorney can try and get to the State and speak with them, before this is filed and try and prevent it. If they can not, they will still represent you and can defend this but at least they may be able to get a head start and speak with a State Attorney in the case filing division.
