The defendants should not speak with anyone about what happened and nothing should be written online about it--such as on Avvo, Facebook, etc. What is said or written can be used against the defendants in court, which is the easiest way to secure convictions.
The defendants should immediately consult with and hire criminal defense attorneys. MIPs are not insignificant--fines, jail, and probation can be imposed, which includes alcohol treatment and testing. This can play havoc with job-hunting, getting into college, procuring health insurance, professional licensure in the future, and can even be brought up in other actions (i.e.. a future divorce case if the other party wants to allege a history of alcoholism for purposes of arguing about child custody).

1. Do not talk or write about this matter (even on Avvo)--what you say or write can be used against you in court and destroy your case.
2. Hire a criminal defense attorney immediately. A conviction on your record can cause significant problems down the road for you. A defense attorney can help navigate the minefield.
3. Immediately stop using alcohol and/or illegal drugs. The judge may have you drug-tested when you are arraigned. If you test positive, the probation department will keep a tight leash on you while you are on bond. By tight leash, I mean unpleasant things can be done to you: rehab, urine tests, SCRAM bracelet, jail, being forced to attend seminars by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (even though driving wasn't involved), bond being set high enough that you need a bail bondsman, etc., etc.See question

You should privately consult with a lawyer who practices family law (i.e. Divorce or Child Custody areas of law as listed on Avvo).
A lawyer sending him (or his lawyer if he is represented) a stern warning might induce him to work with you. If he violates the order, you can ask the judge for him to be held in contempt of court, for you to get makeup parenting time, and for your attorney's fees to be paid.See question

If you mess up, you can be charged with manufacturing, possessing, and/or distributing child pornography. This is a very serious crime that can land you on the sex offender registry. Prosecutors do charge minors for making pornography of themselves--a prospective client called me this past week about it.
You may be a victim of "revenge pornography." Google it. You need to get in front of the problem before it grows worse.
