Im on DWI probation, can the judge sentance me to jail for getting a warning on my interlock device for blowing a 0.023.
I was rushing to catch my flight for work this morning & was careless to the type of mouthwash i used. I jumped in my vehicle blew in my interlock & started my car. Then every 5 min i kept having to blow, after about the 3rd time i realized it was giving me a warning of 0.023 Alcohol. I amedatly realized what it was picking up but didn't have any water to rince the alcholol from my mouth. I was about to miss my flight so i just left it alone & didn't 0-out my intoxilizer. I cannot drink while im on probation, but even though i was under the legal limit & the breathalyzer didn't violate me. Can i still get a violation of probation and sent to jail?

I would like to no if I can be taken to small claims court or any other.
A friend of mine had his drivers license suspended in Missouri. But lives in Louisiana. He wanted to purchase a vehicle he asked me if I would put the vehicle in my name till he could go to Missouri and straighten out his license in order to get a Louisiana license. I said I would but to go as soon as possible. He has had 3 DWI convictions and did 5 months in jail for the last. We went together purchased a vehicle the receipt went under my name, I also have the title, registration and the insurance all in my name. This is in the state of Louisiana . It cost 6500.00 He never went to Missouri to get his drivers license and was driving drunk all over town so I went with a police officer to get the truck worried I could get sued if he wrecked it. Can he take me to small claims court or other
The answer really depends on some missing facts. I would argue that he really doesn't have a claim to the car, itself,...

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...
