Six months ago, my son who only had his learner's permit, took the car without my knowledge to go to a friend's house after I had gone to bed after midnight. He hit a parked car. He was arrested for DUI but passed his breathalyzer and blood test came back negative. The charges were dropped. He will be getting his driver's license in 3 months and I am wondering what will show up when the insurance company pulls his record. When I add him as a driver, I will have to reveal that he had an accident. Will they pull the police report and see that he was arrested? How will that affect our insurance?
You should contact a local attorney to see if the arrest can be expunged.
Second DWI conviction in Louisiana. Can I still become a police officer/ work in homeland security or any other agency?
Pled article 894 on first one. 2 years apart

I had my last one in 2004 and haven't so much as j-walked since! My son passed recently and I drove and got caught under the influence, making this my third within the 10 yr window. I used a court appointed attorney because of the expense so I received 3rd offense instead of reduced to second. I got 1 yr home incarceration with SCRAM bracelet and 4 yrs probation! I'm doing everything asked of me. Did the 28 day in house, doing two AA's/wk, also did grief counseling on my own. If I stay in compliance, which I will, can I get the probation reduced?
Discuss this with your attorney.
After a year and a half I got my license back and it never show up on my record until now...what shall I do now?
Is it still pending for prosecution? If so threaten to take it to trial. The state won't have their witnesses.

Looks like a duplicate post but I'll re-post my response: Contact a lawyer, if you don't already have one, as there...
I have not been to trial for a DWI yet. Had one 20 years ago and they said I did not do classes and community svc.
I redid them 10 yrs. ago. Now they say I am missing 2 classes from that same event. I did all the classes. I have not been to trial and they are making me go to an IOP and AA for 3 yrs., 3 times a week ! The IOP they sent me to said I was not an alcoholic and my insurance would not pay. So now they are sending me to govt. run IOP. Is this even legal? I got this info by letter in the mail. I thought you got sentencing at your trial in person. Not by mail prior. I know someone who has 3 DWI's in 3 yrs. and a felony simple burglary charge and they got 18 months of AA. No one gets 3 yrs. oh except me. Besides that, DWI was dismissed at admin hearing, and now the traffic court wants to try to charge me with it. It was dismissed due to not being properly filed and notarized by officer.
It sounds like your best bet would be to contact the court to see exactly what the sentence was in your case. The court...
