The fact that you dropped the charge does not mean the state dropped the charge. The best way to go would be to retain a criminal defense attorney to explain your need for your husband to the judge. No one predict exactly when he will appear before the Judge, but stating that he and you thought that if the dropped the charges, they went away, is not a good defense. The attorney can get him before the Judge faster.
