    It would depend on the exact dates of the commission of the offenses, the length of probation / jail time, etc. before there can be a determination whether the prior offense cannot be used against you -- as well as whether, if you pled to the prior, the judge adequately advised you of your rights. You should consult with a local La.-licensed attorney who can analyze the dates and whether you may be subject to enhanced penalties, etc based on the new arrest. Thanks and good luck Add Goff...

    Although that likely depends on who is running the diversion program, whenever dealing with such entities, it's safest if you assume that you will be tested (It may be a condition of your bail.). You should contact a local La. attorney that is familiar with the practices of the particular district attorney's office to be sure and to be safe. Thanks and good luck Add Goff

Judges often get input from the prosecutor and the probation officer as to their recommendations. Depending on the seriousness of the violation, jail time is a risk. He should immediately consult with a Louisiana-licensed attorney in your area that is familiar with the court, the judge, as well as the prosecutor. Revocation of probation is a very serious matter that should not be taken...
