I let my friend borrow my car and he got in an accident (nothing major). He was found at fault and got a ticket for the accident and for driving without a license. I got a ticket for letting an unlicensed person drive my vehicle. How will that affect my DMV record? Will I get points on my license? Do I need to get an attorney?

Hire an attorney immediately. This is more than just a traffic ticket.

This is a class 2 misdemeanor just like no operators license is. Sometimes the DA will dismiss these charges if the responsible driver pleads guilty to the charges. Usually the State is more concerned about the driver - but you should get a lawyer to help you and make sure that the State is notified as to the outcome of the case against the driver.
