Charged with dwi. Blew 0. 1st blood test negative. Attorney advised plead guilty. No Miranda rights given. Can we fight the plea
Was diagnosed with concussion. DA resubmitted blood test .Now they say positive for synthetic marijuana that has same symptoms as concussion. Our high dollar attorney advised to take plea and deal with it. Judge said license would not be revoked and received paperwork Saturday 17 May that license were to be surrendered for a year. This was a first offense. This will cost employment. We are both retired military. Never been in trouble with the law. Can you assist?
I'm afraid that once you have pled guilty, your options are somewhat limited. You do have a right to appeal within a...
My husband received a DWI in Louisiana August 2007.
He completed his probation, paid all of his fees, completed alcohol course and community service. He also lost his drivers license for a year. Now, 4 years later, we receive a letter stating that his drivers license will be revoked from March 2011 - December 2011, to complete the 365 of driving suspension. He's already done this, but they're saying that the court was late in filing the suspension paperwork until now and they're going to have to suspend his license. He just received a new job and his job requires a valid drivers license. Is it possible for them to do this?
Dealing with the DMV is always so much fun. No, they cannot do this based on the information you provided. If the...

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...
DWI Probation problems?
I was charged with a DWI in April. I pleaded 894 with the city attorney and was sentenced to community service, AA meetings, MADD and Driving Class. However of these I have only completed the AA meetings and Community Service. I Have a full time job, but I am not driving and it gas been very hard to even achieve these. The MADD panels in my area have all passed. I am trying to find a driving school, but my court date is in a week. Will I be going to jail? Can I request probation extension to just finish these classes? I am really worried about my court date. My probation officer has not really communicated with me at all either.
Do your best to get everything completed and be able to prove it.
