Do Louisiana traffic laws state that it has to be marked? And if it does, would my subsequent charges be dropped?
I was pulled over for going the wrong way down a one way. I was then taken into custody for suspected DWI and subsequently tried for reckless driving and driving without a license (mine is not suspended, it got stolen). I noticed that the one way street I pulled onto was completely unmarked.
If you already went to trial, the lack of a one-way sign should have been presented at that time. However, defeating...
Is this some type of misconduct?
I received a 3rd dwi in metairie in may of 2011 and now I'm going for my final status update on jan 25th. The cop that arrested me quit the force and moved to another state. It took them 4 yrs to get him here to testify for motions. They have no clue where any video tape is and disregarded my testimony about being threatened by another cop that "If you don't blow, we going to strap you down and take your blood". So I was forced to blow. The judge is allowing my results. Here is the catcher. The judge asked the prosecutor some questions about a court date and he lied to the judge about the cop cooperating to come to court. This is by far the complete opposite. They had to threaten him with an attachment if he doesn't show. This was all said on record. This makes me question the tape. Where is it? Is that cop on there threatening me so they are hiding evidence?
The first part of your question deals with continuances and delays to trial. Unfortunately, unless you objected to any...

Your questions is not clear. I'm sure at the time you received the DUI either you owned the vehicle or you drove some...
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.
