Can a charge be added to charges already charged?
My husband was charged two counts of scheduled II drugs, which wasn't in a prescription bottle. The cop said in his report that it was amphetamine and oxycodone. So we said not guilty and showed them that they were my prescriptions (his wife) And that they were two different amphetamines of mine not oxycodone. We showed them proof that I took the prescription from the pharmacy which shows the dates and kind of pills. So they took it to the lab, well it came back two different amphetamine which was what I had on my paper from the pharmacy. Well on his trial date, they wanted to do three years supervised probation but then the lawyer forgot we gave him the list from pharmacy of what I took so he went up to talk to the state (prosecutor) and now they want to test the straw for paraphernalia. That wasn't one of his charge when he went to trail but it was on his police report. Can they add that? And why didn't they test it when they found the two prescription pills? Should I get another lawyer.
Yes, charges can be added. How is it that I would know why they didn't do a test? Getting another lawyer is your choice.

Can the DMV make me install an interlock in my vehicle with no DWI convictions?
I was charged with two DWI offences. Both cases were dismissed. No convictions. The DMV made me install an interlock device in my vehicle in order to reinstate my drivers liscense. Why is it that I am forced to do this when I wasn't convicted of any offense? Innocent until proven guilty? Is that not the way it is supposed to work?
Innocent until proven guilty is how the criminal system works. The DMV, who is part of the Louisiana Department of...

Got DUI 8/28/2011 in LA while I still had a CA drivers license. Went thru court sobriety program for 1 year, including an interlock device in car (classy AF) successfully completed program 7/11/16, was granted article 894, and the case was dismissed. final disposition: SET ASIDE & DISM UNDER ARTICLE 894 (SETTLED AT TRIAL DATE) court minutes state that license was to remain valid: DR WITH VALID DL & LEGALLY TO DRIV; and does not reflect a conviction. because the case was settled 7/11/16, the CA dmv recorded that as the date of conviction. CA dmv randomly sent me an Order of Suspension letter on 4/11/2017.

Would double jeopardy apply to this situation?
I was arrested in 2009 for DWI and improper lane usage in Baton Rouge. During the time awaiting court, I completed all of the pretrial diversion requirements. At the administrative hearing, the arresting police officer admitted to lying on his police report and admitted to instructing me to drive my auto after the field sobriety test to park my automobile. The administrative judge dropped the charges so did the district attorney. I received a DWI charge a couple months ago along with improper lane usage. Since in Louisiana one is treated as guilty and required to satisfy being sentenced prior to a trial I had completed the sentencing (fines, DWI classes, drug tests, community service, vehicle interlock) before the trial where the charges were dropped. In my upcoming case, would any sentencing for 1st offense be double jeopardy because I already satisfied the state in 2009?
No thats not double jeopardy at all. Its a completely different incident. Get an attorney.
