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 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...
