In the case of a toxilizer refusal in the state of Louisiana, how do I delay the suspension and negate/postpone DMV decision?
I know other defendants who have had MULTIPLE DUI's and have not blown and all of which have never had an interlock device installed. I overheard someone talk about a motion that was filed that basically delayed the decision of the DMV and once the hearing was granted, the suspension period was basically over. Any help in the matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What's my Husband's chances of serving jail time for 1st offense DWI? He damage several parked cars and injuries to one driver?
My husband was charged with 1st offense DWI. He caused damage to several parked cars and caused non-life threaten harm to the driver who he collided with. They offered him the option of going into the pre-trial diversion program, with all charges dropped, but we are unable to afford the cost. His first court appearance is coming up soon, what should he plea to allow him more time to gather money for a legal defense. Any other advise is welcomed. Thanks

You clearly have a problem with alcohol. Retain counsel and get into a rehab program now.
