There should be a distinction due the fact that this guy didn't just misjudge and had one drink too many that he just eeked over the legal limit. This guy was obviously scientifically drunk, **** faced if you will. to blow a .09 and say damn it I thought I was legal is one thing but come on, he was clearly impaired. Anyone hurt, maimed or killed does not matter here, he was wasted and shouldn't have been driving. Yes, when you are on a team it is selfish to other team members, as well as being selfish to the public. Those of us that drink have all been legally impaired and behind the wheel. This was not the case. Too boot he had no license...moron is the word that comes to mind.

To be accurate, he did not have a "valid" license. It was most likely expired.

Pleaded not guilty? Didn't he apologize already?

He blew and failed... How in the hell?

His attorney maybe working on a deal, P.T.I or the like...

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

I blew an .06 and they arrested me anyway. I went to court and had to plea to a wreckless. What's the point of a limit if you can get arrested and convicted when you're under the limit. All the cop has to do is say it was my opinion he was impaired. (They pulled me over for a burned out tail light.)

That is what I suspect. I don't remember all the earlier details of the coverage exactly, other than he was passed out blotto, but there is a good bit of a chance for Morgan, if he has a squeaky clean prior record and is truly a first-time offender. I am all for tough laws but it's probably worth more to society to intervene and have him straighten up and fly right, give him rehabilitative services to ensure it never happens again, then it is to lock him up and throw away the key. He shouldn't get off without any repercussions, of course, but there are lots of options for a case like this, especially if Morgan is truly a first timer with no prior record of doing anything. Not guilty may just be a "place holder" plea, until something else happens.

What is P.T.I?

He blew 20% over. I suppose Lafayette is different, M.A.D.D makes sure everyone arrested gets what's coming to them. DWIs are different, in the case of a DWI the "not guilty" would mean that his next "if he got one" would be his first... That won't fly.


Mine was 1894d so I didn't require SR22 insurance, I had to plead guilty but it was grayed out, only remaining on my criminal record, in the event I got a second within 7 years.


No one gets locked up for their first DWI once they are bailed out... There are fines, community service, AA meetings, and a period with no license.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Pre-Trial-Intervention

For some first-time offenders with no prior contact with the criminal justice system, the Office of the District Attorney offers a Pretrial Intervention (PTI) program. The program is staffed with PTI case managers who will work with first-time offenders to examine the underlying reasons for their criminal behavior. Often the first-time offender will be required to take education classes or meet with counselors to learn to how to properly deal with these underlying reasons. In addition, the offender may be subjected to random drug testing. All first time offenders are required to pay restitution to their victims as a condition of their participation in the program.

Entry into this program is solely at the discretion of the District Attorney. Offenders who are invited to participate in this program are advised that strict compliance with all program requirements must be achieved. Should the offender successfully complete the program, a certificate will be issued, and the prosecutor handling the offender’s criminal case will be advised of the successful completion. Successful completion will normally lead to dismissal of all charges.

I found that but he plead not guilty... Normally you plead guilty, then the expungement occurs.
