my husband is being let out on bail tomorrow and the investigator who arrested him called his lawyer tonight. the lawyer called me and told me that the investigator said that if we bail my husband out tomorrow that the police will just arested him again on other charges, is that legal?

It very well may be harassment, and if this happens you may be able to file a suit for these actions.
If there are any further charges, it may be that he will be re-arrested but these charges must have some foundation in truth or they will simply not hold up.
This is a situation that you and your husbands attorney should seriously discuss. There are many diffrent modes of paying for bail, if bail is low enough where you are paying the full amount to the court - and you will be returned all but 3% then it may be worth the risk. If not, then this is something you should also consider.

If he has other cases then they have a right to re-arrest him. It would behoove his lawyer to work out something with the district attorney to get all the charges in so you don't waste your bail money.
