Thibodaux Police report that a Houma man has recently been arrested for his fourth DWI. Brady Coleman visited his ex-girlfriend’s home around 10:30 PM after already being asked to leave once because he was drunk. During his subsequent visit, Coleman asked if he could come inside, but the woman declined.

After the woman told him he was not allowed inside, he broke into the home. Once inside, Coleman drank a beer and then took the victim’s dog. Coleman was ready to flee the scene in his car when he noticed authorities arriving on the premises. He quickly fled on foot to the back of the home and hid. He was promptly discovered and arrested.

Coleman now faces several charges including unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, DWI, remaining after being forbidden, and three counts of resisting an officer. Police report that the offender’s BAC was twice the legal limit at the time of the arrest.
DWIs can carry some serious penalties. However, those penalties become even less forgiving when a repeat offender is being sentenced. In Louisiana, the repercussions for a fourth DWI range from 10 to 30 years of incarceration. This crime carries a 2 year minimum without the possibility of parole.

Any jail time beyond the two year minimum can be suspended if the offender is placed on probation for the remainder of the sentence and agrees to community service. In addition, the offender must agree to an evaluation of their substance abuse problems and follow through with any court ordered treatment plan. Although the offender can be released from incarceration, they must serve one year or more of house arrest. During this time they will also have a curfew and home visits from a probation officer. They also must become employed and complete a driver improvement program.

Although incarceration is a large punishment in itself, additional punishments can also apply. If an offender agreed to a BAC test, Louisiana drivers face a one year license suspension after a fourth DWI. This increases to four years if BAC is over .20 percent. Sometimes it is possible for offenders to receive a restricted license if they have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle.

Fines can also be expected. Roughly $5,000 in fines can be expected from a fourth DWI arrest. These fines do not include court costs or cost of council. It may also be possible for the state to sell your vehicle at auction to pay for court costs and fines.

The DWI charges stemming from wide receiver Joe Morgan’s arrest from May 2013 have been dropped in accordance with Morgan completing a DWI Diversion Program offered by the Jefferson Parish District Attorney. Trial was slated to start on Tuesday, but Morgan’s defense attorney requested a continuance on grounds of getting his client into the diversion program. The judge would not grant it, but the prosecutors dismissed the charges. Morgan will have to complete the rigorous diversion requirements or they could refile the bill of information.
