What is the process for if you get in a car accident with a suspected drunk driver?
I told the state trooper I thought he had been drinking and heard her tell the man it sounded like he was "slurring his words" when she spoke to him. I also included my suspicions in the witness report she had me write. I was issued a ticket for failure to yield and suspended license (was not aware it was suspended; unpaid speeding ticket from Florida) and then she told me I could leave. In the 30+ minutes she was there she had not given the man a field sobriety test or breathalyzer. Is this normal? Did she want me to leave so she could go investigate further without my involvement?
Up to the officer. Hopefully she persuaded him to take a blood test. If you were all over her maybe she just wanted...
What are my or my spouses legal rights if sex video was made while intoxicated and with someone other than spouse.
My wife suffers w/alcoholism for 10 years. She recently went on 4 multi-day binges this month. A 21yr man met her & provided & continued, on each occasion, to keep the influence going with alcohol and pot. Knowing her struggle w/this, she was married w/kids,suffered w/ depression & anxiety & offered to take her, rather than me, to rehab that I had already set up days before, yet he continued providing the substance until she went & all the while having sex w/ her under the influence. He welcomed her back each time & provided substance thru each binge. He made video w/phone & trnsfd to a friends. She recalls, but not to extent taken w/facial expression being the intent. What spouse/Individual rights are there? can we confirm/demand it's destuction? Is it legal consent? Do we have any right
IF the video was taken without her permission, I'd file a report with the police and hire a civil attorney to sue for...

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...
