Is there any defense for a 1st offense 2nd degree battery charge when the victim was intoxicated?
A buddy of mine was drinking at a bar, and some other drunk guy started an argument. My buddy ended up putting him in the hospital and is charged with 2nd degree battery. He has no priors. Is all the fault on him even though the other guy was very intoxicated?
You cannot use physical force in response to verbal abuse unless you are in serious, reasonable fear of bodily harm....

What are our options for underage possession of alcohol?
My 14 year old son was walking on a parade route and was found to be in position of alcohol. Him and a friend were both detained and we were able to pick them up from a command center as long as we agreed to go to court. Our boys are good kids with no previous record and have good grades. The commander at the scene said they will probably get charged and have to do community service. When we go in front of judge is there anything we can do to prevent them from getting a record? Get off with a warning? We are giving him grave punishments at the house and he is regretting this ever happened. They did not do a breathalyzer and they said they had not drank any of it. We did not smell anything on him either.
Contact an attorney to see if the circumstances surrounding the arrest can be mitigated.
Do Louisiana traffic laws state that it has to be marked? And if it does, would my subsequent charges be dropped?
I was pulled over for going the wrong way down a one way. I was then taken into custody for suspected DWI and subsequently tried for reckless driving and driving without a license (mine is not suspended, it got stolen). I noticed that the one way street I pulled onto was completely unmarked.
If you already went to trial, the lack of a one-way sign should have been presented at that time. However, defeating...
Is this some type of misconduct?
I received a 3rd dwi in metairie in may of 2011 and now I'm going for my final status update on jan 25th. The cop that arrested me quit the force and moved to another state. It took them 4 yrs to get him here to testify for motions. They have no clue where any video tape is and disregarded my testimony about being threatened by another cop that "If you don't blow, we going to strap you down and take your blood". So I was forced to blow. The judge is allowing my results. Here is the catcher. The judge asked the prosecutor some questions about a court date and he lied to the judge about the cop cooperating to come to court. This is by far the complete opposite. They had to threaten him with an attachment if he doesn't show. This was all said on record. This makes me question the tape. Where is it? Is that cop on there threatening me so they are hiding evidence?
The first part of your question deals with continuances and delays to trial. Unfortunately, unless you objected to any...
