Recently plead no contest under Article 8.94 for first offense misdemeanor DWI in Louisiana.
I completed the probation and paid court costs. I am now wondering will the charge appear on any background checks for potential job interviews or was the charge automatically expunged from records.
No, expungements are not automatic. Rather, once you have successfully completed probation, you first have to file a...
How will I be charged for a misdemeanor possession charge if I received a DUI in the past?
Two years ago I received a DUI but was eligible for the pretrial diversion program and completed it. This year I was arrested for possession of marijuana and would just like to know will I be charged for a second drug charge, or as a first-time charge.
A DWI cannot be used to enhance a possession of marijuana charge. Assuming you are charged with possession of marijuana...
What will happen if I get kicked out of my PTI program?
A few months ago I was arrested for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. I decided to enroll in PTI rather than hire a lawyer and fight the charge, but only because I had no information on what the potential penalties were for my misdemeanor. Now that I am in the program I am worried I will not be able to pass every drug test, seeing as I have extreme anxiety and it is hard for me to ease it without the help of marijuana. I just want to know what would happen if I didn't complete the program, and what the outcome would be once my case was prosecuted.
Q: What will happen if I get kicked out of my PTI program? I am not a LA lawyer so I cannot comment on matters of...
What is the casino law on alcohol?
My father was in a car accident after consuming alcohol at a casino and the toxicology report stated he was 3 times over the limit. After researching the state of a person that is 3 times over the limit, I am very confused as to why they allowed my father to leave and drive away in that state. I need to know if this is negligence on their part or should I just let it go.
The casino is not responsible for your father's driving while intoxicated in Louisiana.
I moved out of California with a suspended DL, now can not reinstate my driving privileges due to incomplete dui classes.
I was convicted with a dui in California Sacramento county in 2012, Im still on informal probation. I completed my work project right away. I have not completed my court ordered 3 month dui classes that are required by the dmv to reinstate my driving privileges. I recently moved my residency to Louisiana for work, and do not plan to move back to California. Can i take a class here in Louisiana to satisfy CA-DMV to reinstate my Lic? Or can i take a different course of action. I am not attempting to get a Louisiana DL, I am aware the DMV works on the same network and honor other states suspensions. The issue im faced with is I cant take a class in Cal. while I live in Louisiana, and Ca DMV will not accept a dui class completed out-of-state unless approved by a Ca judge. Or so I've heard.
You need to have someone make contact with the court and explain your situation and see if they will allow you to take...
