DUI / DWI Attorney
About all you can do is hire a good attorney. There may be a speedy trial violation. His attorney will know how to handle this. There is nothing to be filed against the victim if that's what you're asking.

I agree with Ma Jagger's. he needs to retain a good attorney immediately. Three may be several avenues to pursue in defending him. Many attorneys in your area, like myself, offer free consultations.

Oh my -- this is a grave situation. Find the best criminal defense attorney you can to help. There is nothing you personally can do and there does not seem to be anything you can do against "them" based on your post.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
