My husband is 64. He goes once a month to for chemotherapy. He has gone for chemo therapy for about 6 months. He is there for many hours. Since he is there for so long, he brings a big bag. Today he left his bag at his chemo station before starting the therapy. He jokingly said, "don't touch the bag it is full of bombs." He tends to say stupid things since he thinks he is being funny. Next thing is the clinic is evacuated and my husband is arrested for terroristic threatening. He was booked and then released with no bail. He was polite and apologetic through the entire ordeal. He can barely walk, uses a cane and has a brace on his leg. The detective told him after he was released that the whole thing was stupid, but it was a Class A felony.
My question is, what do we do now? What will happen? We no assets and cannot pay for an attorney.
