More information, such as of the relationship between the alleged victim and the alleged perpetrator and more would have to be known to give a firm answer. A critical factor in a prosecutor's decision to prosecute would be assessing how probable it is to prove such a very,very old accusation.

You have already given away any chance you might have had to defend so I would not advise talking with the private detective. You should retain a lawyer immediately to possibly avoid prosecution. Good luck.
Generally speaking short of habitual drunkenness, death by auto or some other serious felony, a traffic offense (which DUI is in NJ), a DUI conviction would not be admissible to challenge your credibility as a witness.
I got pulled over and the stated reason was "Your license plate lights are out." I replied that I wasn't aware and thanked her for letting me know. She comes back with a ticket for me.

Because we have no "right" to be warned of a traffic violation, I don't think a judge or prosecutor will agree that you're innocent on that basis. Pay the fine and costs and in the future perform periodic equipment checks on your vehicle. Good luck to you.

NVC Notify me that my visa is sent to embassy in Aug 2016 till now I have not hear anything if I send e-mail to embassy they reply the are reviewing it, now my fingerprints expired can any lawyer intervene and follow up why embassy not called for an interview

More info is needed, but it appears that the crime pled to for the 1 year sentence was in addition to and possibly consecutive to the sentence being served before this latest conviction. You might want to schedule a consultation with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
