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?
Anytime you violate probation the judge can sentence you to jail. However, some judges will opt not to sentence you to...

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,...

How long does a DWI failed sobriety test stay on your driving record if the criminal charges are dropped via Article 894?
I was arrested for DWI in September 2010 after attending an LSU football game after failing a breathalyzer. In 2013, the charges were dismissed via Article 894, but has not been expunged. I did a self query of LA DMV records and the license suspension is still on there. Will this be on my record for 10 years as if I was convicted, and if not when can I expect this to disappear? Thnaks
While you pled under 894, unless you go through the subsequent step of getting an expungement of the arrest records...
Can I be charged with a 3rd offense DUI?
The first time was dismissed and I pleaded to careless operation. The second time I pleaded first offense and it was expunged later. 7 years later I get charged with third offense.
Not if your first offense was dismissed. DA's make mistakes, hire a local DUI lawyer to fight the alleged prior.
What can happen to my insurance rate after the DMV hearing but before the court hearing?
During a DWI checkpoint, I had to do the FST and then was taken to the station for a breathalyzer. The machine did not register so I was arrested for "refusal to blow". My DMV administrative hearing was last month and had gotten recalled because the cop did not send in all of the correct paperwork. As a result, my license is not suspended and I do not need to get SR22 insurance. My next court date is next month, and I am hoping to have the DUI charges reduced. In the meantime, can my insurance rate go up since I have not been convicted/charged for DUI? And if my charges do get reduced, will the DUI still show up for insurance companies and will my insurance rate still go up? Thanks.
This all has to do with when you get "audited" by your insurance company. It usually only happens once every several...
