    Your husband is in a particularly tricky position. The criminal and immigration issues will be handled in different courts. Even if he is here legally, his immigration status is at risk because of the charges, whatever they might be. If he is here illegally and he is still in jail, he may have an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer on him, meaning he may not get out even if you post bail: he may just be deported. It sounds like it could be a robbery charge, but the bail amount is...

    A DWI cannot be expunged in NJ because it is a traffic violation, not an offense or crime. The downside is that if you are asked about an arrest, you will probably have to answer yes. The upside is that if you are asked about a conviction of a "crime", the language used in NJ laws would mean that you could say you were not. But it depends on what they're asking

    There are many issues that come up in DWIs. In yours in particular comes the issue of operation, and the policy issue of pulling over when one thinks they are too drunk to drive. You actually cannot pea bargain a DWI. There are guidelines that keep that form happening. The state would have to agree to throw out the readings for some reason and sentence you to a three month suspension, or to dismiss the entire thing.

    The problem with these is that there is published case law saying that driving on the revoked for DWI can't be served on weekends or with SLAP (essentially cleaning up on the side of the road during the day on Saturday and Sunday), although I believe that case is only binding on one county. You will probably be able to keep from having this disposed of until after you have given birth, so DYFS/DCF will not necessarily become involved. But to keep you out of jail entirely, your lawyer will...

    You are exposed to the same amount of punishment that you could have received for what you were originally charged with. For a conspiracy to commit armed robbery, you are looking at 5-10 years in prison with 85% of that to be served before you are eligible for parole. I have a hunch that it was either downgraded to something else, or at least treated as a 3d degree for sentencing purposes, which would be flat 3-5 years in prison.

    You are in no more trouble than anyone else who is charged with a first offense DWI for drugs: 7-12 months loss of license, along with assorted fines and penalties, including a $1000 per year for three years, 12 hours of Intoxicated Driver's Resource Center. One perverse thing about NJ DWI law is that in this type of case, you have to prove that you weren't driving while you were intoxicated. There are many other things that go into it, but that is one. Another is where you were sitting when...

    You need to speak with an attorney immediately. For your own good and the good of the defendant. There are ways you can "recant" and not be subject to any criminal exposure for perjury if you testify differently, but you have to talk to an attorney to do it right. There are ways that you can contact the investigators for the prosecuting agency and/or the attorney for the defendant, but you should speak to an attorney to make sure you are covered. If you don't, you might help put an...
