Nebraska case law is fairly refined for traffic stops involving weaving within a lane of travel. It is not a violation of law and that, alone, does not give rise to probable cause to proceed with field sobriety tests, preliminary breath test or Intoxilyzer test. Take a look at State vs. Au, a case from May of this year that discusses this.

A public defender will be appointed the first time he appears in Court. The Court will not take up any matters except possibly to set a bond at the first hearing to give him an opportunity to talk to the lawyer.
The jury selection process is more an art than a science. I generally pick a juror that I believe likes ME as the defense attorney and try the case somewhat directly to that person. The state has to convince 6 or 12 people; I only have to convince one.

You should contact a Washington licensed criminal defense attorney in your area at once. I would caution you about speaking to anyone including friends and family about the facts of your case until you have interviewed and received advice from one or more attorneys. A defense attorney is extremely valuable to guide you through the investigative stage. Select one that has both state and federal court experience.
If the investigation reveals that no sexual assault occurred, then the State will likely dismiss. If he's charged already, then little additional investigation will probably occur. You should consult with a lawyer to discuss the process and how to mount a defense.
