I got a dui over 10 years ago and now I'm being charged with another will it. be considerd my second?
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
going to meet w/ pre trial diversion administrator. I don't know what will occur during the meeting but I do know that I'm required to pay the enrollment fee....I also know that I will not be paying for drug tests at this meeting. does this mean...
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

Without any more details, generally speaking, this decision is ultimately within the judge's discretion. 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 lightly.
