Donaldsonville Law

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...

Can I be found guilty for driving while taking suboxone prescribed to me ? Long story short, drug cops searched my husbands car
They also searched my home and found nothing, I was in store 15 min ,a man told me my 26 yr old son was unresponsive in my car, I went to car, and it turned out they were drug cops in plain clothes, there was 4 of them, Turned out they lied about my son, then said someone reported seeing my car swerving, then all 4 said I smelled of alcohol, (I blew 0.00) ,they all apparently lied about smelling alcohol on my breath and the car could be anyones because they didn't see me drive

I was locked up in miss. State for dui . the jail gave my keys away to car without me giving permission. Any help?
I reportedy car stolen. A mite county jail gave my keys to someone and have no record of who they gave them to. I now have no car and the jail is not taking responsibility for what they did. I need to file a civil suit against these people for what they did to me. I'll take any help I can get. Thank you.
You've posted this in criminal DUI when it's a civil case.
I was locked up for DUI in miss. State and they gave my keys to someone without me signing them out. What do I do?
They have no record of who they even gave the keys too and did not get my consent. Now I have reported car stolen and am confused about what to do. But I do know I don't have a car and no one is taking responsibility.
This isn't really a question for a lawyer unless you want to file suit.
