If my first dui was when i was 17 and was plead down to a wet and wreckless, will a second one that i just got when i turned 23 count as a second and require me to serve jail time, if so will they work around my work?

I had a public defender when I was charged with wet and reckless driving and he had so many clients in the court room that I spoke to him for about 10 minutes total from the start of the proceedings to the end. He basically said "Plead guilty and take the plea bargain", he showed up to court late, he forgot paperwork that would have helped my case (such as the fact I blew a 0.00 BAC on the breathalyzer) and he mumbled and stuttered. Normally I NEVER would have taken the plea bargain but I just didn't feel I had a chance in heck of winning in a trial, simply because I felt my public defender didn't have the experience or professional demeanor to put up a satisfactory defense. So would a private attorney be a better choice?

i was not driving a commercial vehicle but was in my personal vehicle. they are telling me that those dui's will both be on my record for 55 yrs. and the 4 points associated with those offenses will remain for the same amount of time. I am currently in the process of obtaining my class a again as i gave it up after the second one and am afraid that i will never be able to be hired because of the points. is there any action i can take legally to fight those points or a possible hearing that i can get with DMV to see if i can get those points removed for the sole purpose of employment. i want to drive for a living if possible. i definitely respect my license more now . please help. i was just issued my commercial permit yesterday so i know i have not lost it for life
Second time DUI usually means that your commercial driving privileges are suspended for life. Given that your cases...

The problem you may be facing is that two DUI convictions means a lifetime loss of a class A license. The points on...
There are two, both about 5 years ago. Both while underage.
Each state has their own statute of limitations. You need to ask this in a Louisiana thread. Good luck.
