    Prosecutors in Ascension Parish said they are working "as diligently as possible" to provide federal grand jury transcripts and investigative materials to defense attorneys in a state criminal case against Sorrento Councilman Randy Anny and Roy Maughan Jr. that may help prove their innocence. On Monday, Judge Thomas Kliebert Jr. of the state 23rd Judicial District ordered prosecutors to either turn over the federal materials for exculpatory evidence or to issue a certified statement that there is no evidence to produce.

Deputy sheriff arrested my husband who was rear ended by another vehicle and got arrested for DUI after passing the breathalyzer
My husband was involved in a 3 vehicle accident. He was rear ended and the car was pushed towards a vehicle that suddenly stop in front of him. The airbags never deployed in our Mercedes and he hit his head and arm. I went to the scene to get my husband and to help him after I hear he hit his head. The deputy was trying to force him to write a statement. I told him that he had 3 surgeries on his wrist last year and that he just hit his hand again during the accident. I offer to assist to write the statement and he was rude to me. He told me that he needed to try to do it himself and asked me to leave and go to my car. There was other people with the person that rear ended my husband, but he didn't asked them to leave. We are assuming because they were black like the deputy. After he hit his head, the deputy use the breathalyzer on my husband, but not the person who rear ended him. Then he proceed to make him walk in uneven gravel. He passed 6 out of the 7 sobriety test. The only test he fail was the one in where he made him walk in uneven gravel. He arrested my husband for DUI and he spend 3 days in jail until the judge let him go on his own with no bond. The case got dropped.
I am pretty sure there is a question in there somewhere? I am sorry he was treated in such a manner. He may have a...
What will happen?
I was caught with a misdemeanor of possession of marijuana and paraphanelia. I didn't have to go to court but was entered into a pre-trial program. I take my first drug test tomorrow, and I haven't smoked in 40 days. But I don't think I'll pass the test because I was a heavy user and it's still in my system. What will happen to me if I fail it?
Your first test is just to establish your levels. As long as future tests decrease, there will be no consequences.
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...

Would double jeopardy apply to this situation?
I was arrested in 2009 for DWI and improper lane usage in Baton Rouge. During the time awaiting court, I completed all of the pretrial diversion requirements. At the administrative hearing, the arresting police officer admitted to lying on his police report and admitted to instructing me to drive my auto after the field sobriety test to park my automobile. The administrative judge dropped the charges so did the district attorney. I received a DWI charge a couple months ago along with improper lane usage. Since in Louisiana one is treated as guilty and required to satisfy being sentenced prior to a trial I had completed the sentencing (fines, DWI classes, drug tests, community service, vehicle interlock) before the trial where the charges were dropped. In my upcoming case, would any sentencing for 1st offense be double jeopardy because I already satisfied the state in 2009?
No thats not double jeopardy at all. Its a completely different incident. Get an attorney.
Do I still have to get interlock after serving jail time for 3rd dwi.
