If you have no written lease with your tenants, it's deemed to be a month-to-month lease. You must follow the requirements of the Delaware Landlord-Tenant Code to remove them. You can read the Code here:

The State could choose to bring a new charge of Breach of Release against you, which could result in your bail being increased, converted to secured status, or even revoked. You should cease posting about it anywhere, because your postings could be used against you in a prosecution. You should also contact a criminal defense attorney such as myself to discuss this issue.

Unfortunately, the call to drop the charges cannot be made by you and your sister. That decision is made by the Attorney General's Office. However, under Delaware law the prosecutor is required to consult with the victim of a crime before offering a plea bargain. Therefore, when the time comes for your husband to go to court, and you are contacted by the prosecutor, you should make it clear that you do not wish the case to continue.

Michael L. Sensor Esq.'s answer
I am not sure I understand your question. You cannot bring a criminal case against the State of Delaware. However, if you have been charged with a crime, the Rules of Professional Conduct absolutely prohibit a lawyer from taking a criminal case on a contingent basis. If you have been charged with a crime and are unable to afford a lawyer, you should contact the Public Defender's Office for your county immediately.

Michael L. Sensor Esq.'s answer
Assuming this is a criminal case, the no contact order is an order of the court placed upon a defendant as a condition of release on bail. If this court order is disobeyed, the violator could be subject to a new charge of Breach of Release and have his/her bail increased or even revoked. I suggest you contact a criminal defense attorney for advice as to how to modify the no contact order to an order of "no adverse contact".
