i was not difficult w the cops and had a rather horrid officer...i wish i could remember his name but...he was awful. i have photos of my wrists being bruised from how tight he cuffed me and had me chained to the bench for no reason.

Thank you and please allow me a moment

Thank you. Yes, that is where you would need to apply for the expungement and if you are in another State, you could retain local counsel, to help file for this and appear on your half, to get it done, as long as you are eligible. Almost anyone who has a Louisiana state court, non-violent felony or misdemeanor conviction who has successfully completed his sentence and waited the required period of time may ask for an expungement and I have shared a link below, that contains the forms, if you wanted to proceed on your own.
