New Orleans Law

I received a DWAI in CO back in March, and the CO suspension period is 60 days before becoming eligible for early reinstatement, which I served from May to July. I have not filed for early reinstatement in CO because it "requires" being a citizen of CO for 2 years. I am planning on moving to Louisiana very shortly, and was wondering if I can obtain a hardship license in the state of Louisiana, as I have now served 4 months with no license, and completed my CO suspension and eligible for early reinstatement.
Have you even asked them in LA? That would be a good place to start.
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 later said the officers 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. Blood was never drawn, urine sample never taken nothing. So how can I be convicted if there is no proof I had drugs in my system. I could have made it all up for all he knows. Such an unjust world
Without any forensic evidence, a DWI/DUI can still be based on the observations of the officer. Those combined with...
In 2010 I plead no contest to my 2nd Dui. I completed my jail time, paid my fines, and had about half of my classes completed. I ended up having to move out of state very abrubtly due to employment issues. New Orleans does not offer any type of classes. I have been going to AA when I can, and a group therapy session.. I have no plans to return to California, but I would like to finally pay my respects to the court and get this resolved. What are my options?

I believe legally, that a 50cc can't be driven on L.A. roads. Please clarify this loophole in the law. Thank you.
I see no one on avvo has answered your question. Consider calling a local LA DUI lawyer for a free consult.
Can I get into a program and have the charges dropped or reduced?
You will likely have options if this is your first charge and there is no injury. You should retain an attorney for the...
