In a word, "Yes." You will almost certainly have a better time of this is you go back to Massachusetts on your own and turn yourself in. If you are caught by another state, you can be held for up to 90 days before Massachusetts has to respond as to whether they want you and if the do, you can be held for a "reasonable" amount of time after that while Massachusetts comes to get you. How long is reasonable is up to the judge who hears the case. You may have trouble getting jail credit for the time you are held waiting for them. Then, when they do come, you will not be taken directly back to the Bay State in comfort and ease. You trip will be in chains in the back of a windowless van.
I urge you to hire a Massachusetts lawyer to help you and to turn yourself in.
Best of luck!See question

If you don't pay, you will lose your license in NC for failure to appear. If you do pay, you may still lose your license in NC for getting convicted of speeding that fast. You need a lawyer in Louisiana to negotiate the speed down to something that will not mess up your right to drive. Borrow the money. Get a second job. Don't ignore this. It will get much more expensive and much, much worse.See question
I got a dwi and they drew blood how long will it be till i get the results so i can know how to fight it.
You should consult with a lawyer about this question, but in some cases, it can be beneficial to resolve your case though a plea before the blood results come back from the lab. A full and thorough discussion with an experienced, local lawyer will help give you some direction.
Do NOT try to do this on your own. You will get hurt.See question

It is possible that without your help, the State will be unable to prove their case and will have to drop it. They may be able to prove the case without you and if they can, they are likely to try. If you have not been subpoenaed, you cannot bet into trouble for failure to appear to prosecute him. If, however, you do not go, the State will probably request and get more time to try to subpoena you and make you come to court next time. If you do go, the State will want to know what you would like to have done with the case. They are unlikely to dismiss it based on your request, but they may consider resolving the case in a way that allows your husband to avoid a conviction or to avoid jail. You are not required to hire a lawyer, though you have that option if you think it would be worthwhile.
A conversation with an experienced, local lawyer would probably be useful to help you clarify the questions that you raise and give you some direction in how to proceed. I strongly recommend it.See question

There is no way to know from your question whether a private attorney would be able to move the case more quickly than the appointed lawyer, but it is possible. One of the benefits of hiring a private attorney as opposed to an appointed lawyer, is that the private attorney usually has more time to focus on the case. Appointed lawyers generally are grossly overworked and underpaid. They usually do their best to protect their clients, but have so many clients and so much to do that they simply have to limit the time that they spend on any given case. A private lawyer of your choosing would undoubtedly be significantly more expensive, but may be about to get you quicker results.
There is no downside to speaking with an experienced, local attorney. I strongly recommend it.See question

You are not required to speak with the police. I strongly recommend that you hire experienced local counsel to speak with the police on your behalf. I cannot begin to tell you how many people we have prevented from getting charged with crimes by preventing them from speaking directly with the police.See question
They are asking for a payment of no less then a 1000 should I show up up even though I'm not required
Given that no one has responded to you in 17 hours, I think it's fair to assume that no one knows what you are asking. You may have posted your question in the wrong section or you may just have used jargon that no one recognizes. I recommend starting again and telling more of the story.See question

Your question as posed is impossible to answer. It is crucial that he speak with an experienced local attorney who can learn the facts of his case and advise him as to possible defenses. There is no way to know whether he has an alibi, whether he was merely present, or whether a crime was even committed. Without a great deal more information, no responsible lawyer could answer. I urge you or him to consult with counsel as soon as possible.See question

Doing these things ahead of time will help IF you are convicted. If you are found not guilty, they could be a waste of time (in a legal sense). You may be thinking, "I am guilty. I am going to be convicted." In fact, there may well be legal defenses available to you of which you are not aware. Only a qualified attorney will be able to advise you about these. The law surrounding Driving While Impaired is complex and confusing. I urge you to speak with an experienced local attorney to evaluate your case before you make any decisions about how to proceed.See question
