DA Ends DWI Program

This Lafayette District Attorney's Office is discontinuing a program which allowed some drunk driving suspects to wipe their records clean.   

The move comes after the program was linked to a scandal inside the DA's office. The program, which involved so-called “Immediate 894” handling of cases, is at the center of a pay-for-privilege scandal.

The investigation has led to four federal indictments, including bribery charges against a former assistant district attorney and two former secretaries in the district attorney's office.

The FBI investigation is continuing in the bribery case.
