Louisiana DWI presents a broad overview of the DWI laws in Louisiana. The text serves as a guide to prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges who have to apply and interpret Louisiana DWI laws. More specifically, this book provides analysis and discussion of the wide variety of Louisiana DWI statutes and regulations. It is not designed to favor the prosecution or the defense in DWI cases, but to provide a resource that both sides can refer to for information in DWI cases.

The individual sections of Louisiana DWI explore in depth how the different statutes and rules governing DWI are applied, providing commentary of current court decisions, statutes, and regulations. Each section provides background information about each statute, along with the available caselaw, illustrating how courts in Louisiana have applied the rules and regulations to a particular case. In short, this book presents substantive information that will not only educate readers about the DWI statutory and regulatory schemes, but will also increase the reader's overall knowledge and understanding of the DWI laws and how they operate in practice.

This book begins with a discussion in Chapter 1 of the criminal laws affecting driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Chapter 2 contains a discussion of the Louisiana Implied Consent Laws (the civil laws affecting DWI). Chapter 3 covers suspension of driving privileges for DWI related offenses. Chapter 4 addresses related serious driving offenses, while Chapter 5 summarizes related non-serious driving offenses. Chapter 6 deals with stops, searches, and seizures of motorists suspected of driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Chapter 7 reviews the many field sobriety tests used by law enforcement officers to determine if a person is driving under the influence. Finally, Chapter 8 serves as an introduction to the laws pertaining to the expungement of DWI arrests and convictions. This chapter also contains a list of the various expungement laws in Louisiana as well as the forms that must be filed with expungement requests.
