He did file the initial complaint against me but is no longer cooperating with the investigation. Can I still be convicted? How can I tell if the state has actually picked up the case as he has told a few ppl that he 'heard from a cop that they we...
You can receive a 6 year prison sentence for these crimes assuming you have no prior record. As my colleagues mentioned above although your husband doesn't wish to pursue the charges the State Attorney might pick them up. The copy may no longer be pursuing this case because you were already arrested and their investigation is over. Your case is in the prosecutor's hands now and they may chose to drop your case, but I highly doubt that.See question

It depends on the attorney. I would continue to call around and do my best to negotiate with the attorney or his staff. Also you may want to seek out the Florida Bar association (they may refer you to some they believe could help you) and there is always the Public Defender's office if you qualify.See question
Are they under subpoena? What are the consequences? The victim slash witness is a 16 year old btw
A deposition should have been sent out, but it is not required. If a subpoena was not sent than the witness does not need to appear in a criminal case. There aren't many statistics on how common a witness misses their deposition, but that it not really important.See question

About 30 something day have passed and the only thing filed is the arrest affidavit, arrest warrant.
The date of your arrest is what counts here and not when you were bailed out. The prosecutors (state attorneys) have 175 from the date of your arrest to file charges against you. Don't confuse the court with the prosecutors. If they try to file charges after the 175 day mark let a criminal defense lawyer know.See question
