Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
Legally, a person who has a disability and is arrested is treated no differently than someone without a disability. The Constitution
guarantees a right to a phone call in a reasonable time after arrest and after booking. Thus, as long as they gave him the opportunity to make a call in a reasonable time after they processed him, they did not violate his constitutional rights.
The prosecutor has no obligation to speak to you, unless you are your husband's licensed attorney. Anything you tell the prosecutor could come back to be used against your husband and you could even be compelled to testify because of you approaching the prosecutor. The prosecutor will speak with your husband's attorney regarding this matter and your husband's attorney's comments to the prosecutor cannot be used against your husband.
As your husband cannot afford counsel, he would be entitled by the Constitution to a public defender
and you need to go to the public defender's office in the court house to seek to arrange representation
for him. His attorney will take the information you have on this alleged victim and will present it to the prosecutor.
Furthermore, for your husband to be convicted on anything, the alleged victim has to appear in court and testify and when he does your husband's attorney would use that information on the multiple identities to impeach his credibility and this raises reasonable doubt needed to get your husband found not guilty if the prosecutor even takes this to trial after they see your evidence.
You can seek reasonable accommodations from the court, such as allowing your husband to wait outside of court where he could be more comfortable and allowing him to use the bathroom as frequently as required.
