The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in New Orleans, seeks more than $5 million in damages against Normand and Detective Nicholas Breaux, the undercover deputy seen on a cellphone video delivering four right hooks to the face of 17-year-old Brady Becker, a student-athlete at St. Charles Catholic High School in LaPlace.

Metairie Law

Had a DUI in 2008 that was dismissed in 2012 in La. Shortly after got DUI in Miss. in 2012 and it was dismissed this last month
when I try to have the Miss. DUI expunged, do you think they would reopen the case if they saw the La. dismissal? I read that a dismissal can be reopened within 18 months of the dismissal. Do you think they would. Don't think they realized it was my second offence before the dismissal.
As a general rule I advise clients not to seek an expungement unless the applicable period of time expires in which to...
I want to move out of state and I am on bond here for a DUI, I have a lawyer and my case is next week. I need to move to Texas
I need to move to Texas to be with my kids as my ex husband is getting a divorce. My lawyer seems to be skirting the issue on me getting the court's permission for me to move. I don't understand why it is a big deal, should I switch lawyers? Does this sound like he doesn't know what he is doing???
It sounds like your lawyer knows what he is doing. What are the conditions of your bond? You will at least need to...
Can I be prosecuted even though I passed breathalyzer and no blood was drawn, along with no miranda rights read to me?
Officer pulled me over asked me if I was under the influence of anything I said yes. A muscle Relaxer taken after a long days work. No field sobriety test given, and the ticket I was given said the offices dashboard camera was off. Officer forced me to go to ER against my will since I have no insurance. Leaving the ER the officer cuffed me and threw me in his State police SUV, then he proceeded to conduct a violent search which involved slamming me against his car multiple times and tearing my clothes apart looking for drugs I suppose. I thought he was bringing me home but instead I arrived at county jail having never had read my miranda rights or told what I was being arrested for. I can't afford a lawyer but I can't let them get away with this one. I've never even had a speeding ticket
Miranda does not have to be read to you unless you are in custody and being interrogated, which does not sound like...

she was driving her kid to daycare and when she dropped her off 3 cops pulled up before she got back into her car . will it revoke her probation? she just checked herself into a rehabe facility

I received a third dwi in New Orleans almost three years ago. Is there a statute of limitations on it, and, if so, how long?
New Orleans dropped their charges, the state has not contacted me or filed charges.
Louisiana law is different than many states. Get a consult with a local attorney.
I did 894 plea for a DWI last Wednesday. I was told I can go get my license back? Is that correct and what do I need to bring
I already paid to the court my $50.00 fine Fri for the Office of Motor Vehicles and start my 7 day house arrest tomorrow. All of my community service and classes are all set up. Do I need to go in or can I reinstate my license over the web or phone?
Contact the DMV by phone today to have them pull up your record and advise you on your options for getting reinstated.
I have court on 8/15/13 for a DWI and the court clerk told me my case was still in screening what does that mean?
I blacked out while on the way to the hospital. When I woke up I was at the hospital getting my blood drawn. I was then transported to jail for dwi and improper control of a vehicle. I was released the next morning ROR. My medical records said I have hypokalemia. It has been approx. 2 or 3 months since the arrest and the DA is still in screening. I was told to show for the court date get an apearance certificate then call every two weeks to check for a subpoena. Does it sound like the case may be dismissed?
You should talk with an experienced DWI attorney in your area to discuss in more detail if you fail to get any answers...
