My wife and I got into a drunk argument so I called the police who came and interviewed me and my drunk wife. I only called them hoping they would talk to her and scare her into behaving and instead they took her away and I had to post 750 in bai...
You can't just "get your wife off" a charge. Now that the DA has the case and will be filing charges, your wife will need a criminal defense attorney, either retained or appointed by the court, to fight for her. Good luck.See question

Mr. Finnecy is spot on. The cops do not have to show you the search warrant or the affidavit. They can wait until charges are filed and then let the DA give it to the defense attorney. However, if the affidavit was sealed pursuant to People v. Hobbs, then your lawyer will have to file a motion to get the affidavit. Usually the return on the warrant is filed very quickly.See question
Can I submit a statement to say that I auctually started the fight, and my boyfriend was innocent? Is it possible to help stop the case get filed? What's the possible result to me if I saying that?
Well, if you are lying to save your boyfriend from gong to jail or prison, then filing a false police report for starters. If you have discussed this with him while he is incarcerated, then the phone call was probably recorded to which the DA will have access. Finally, if you told the cops something different when they showed up and now you are trying to change your story, you will just anger the DA that much more who might decide to go after your boyfriend more than he or she might have. You are not the first "victim" to try and change her story after thinking about it over night and after the boyfriend starts putting pressure on you. Next time the cops might be less inclined to help you when you call for help.See question

Your attorney can get the remainder of the warrant so long as the affidavit is not sealed pursuant to Hobbs. Since there was no request to seal the warrant, there should not be a problem.See question

does not submit such, but merely comments, argues &/or opposes such?
Absolutely and that is the standard practice in Sacramento County. The defense is always welcome and encouraged to submit their own instructions but normally the prosecution has all the correct instructions and the defense just comments and argues what should and should not be read to the jury.See question

Because the law says 18. Not 15 or `6 or 17 but 18. So your boyfriend is guilty of statutory rape and could be prosecuted. Minors cannot consent to sexual activity but apparently the law doesn't mean much to you. Why didn't you try to get emancipated before engaging in sexual activity. By the way, minors cannot enter into binding contacts to buy anything, so unless you lied to the lender or seller, you could not have bought a house with your boyfriend.See question
I blew under the .08 but I was still arrested for a dui and submitted to a chemical test where I still blew under. And when I was arrested he did not read me my rights. I was also already pulled over CHP was the one who arrested me
As all the attorneys have pointed out that you get your Miranda rights read to you just because you were arrested. I know criminal law and procedure can be complicated and arcane but this concept is fairly straight forward. You have to be in cus today at the time you get your Miranda rights.See question
