I recently received a DWI in Louisiana, and my options were to either plead guilty or not guilty and get a hearing. I wanted to plea no contest and get a hearing, but that was not an option. I had the gastric bypass surgery done 6 months ago, and it was my first time to drink. I did not feel nor think that I was intoxicated, I had two drinks, and thought that I was fine. When the officer took me in to do a BAC it came out .121, which is astonishing to me. I have no priors of any sort and this is my first offense. I have done research and found that post op patients, because of the smaller stomach, and different of of digesting , do in fact blow higher BAC levels. I can get a letter from my doctor backing this information up, also have found and printed others like this situation online out. Do you think I should plead guilty, or Not guilty and fight it? Thank you.
A no-contest plea has the same effect as a guilty plea. You waive trial, give up your rights, and have no hearing. If...

The failure to complete your probation is not considered a separate criminal act, and I do not believe it will make you...
I moved out of state due to Hurricane Katrina. My attorney told me he could not help me till i came back home. But in the mean time a warrant was put out for my arrest and I was not in the state to take care of it. How can i clear up this mess without getting arrested. If i get arrested i will lose my job and won't have any way of paying the fines or taking care of my family.
You will have to deal with the warrant. Most likely that will involve coming back to LA. Do you still have the same...

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.
I was ordered to have interlock for 3 months. I was stopped and blew a .111. What are the consequences for this?
Its time for me to have it uninstalled and dmv said that Bc I had sobriety test done I have to come in before I can have it taken out. Id like to know why.
It sounds like you could possibly be charged with second offense DUI. Were you stopped twice within one year?
