Parents of two minors will be making criminal defense decisions

Two children, ages five and 10, were reportedly at home when police officers came knocking at their door. The purpose of the impromptu visit was a premises search.

The incident not only changed the rest of that particular day for the two siblings, it may have changed the rest of their entire lives as well.

ACLU steps in regarding Louisiana criminal defense situation

A problem is brewing in Louisiana that involves people who have posted bail and are released from jail. It seems that a particular parish where the court is allowing those being released from jail to be charged extra supervision fees before they can go free. The fees are supposedly being paid to a private company that offers pretrial supervision services.

When a traffic stop turns into a criminal defense situation

Sometimes, getting pulled over in a traffic stop in Louisiana is merely an inconvenience. An officer may issue some type of warning and send a motorist on his or her way.

Louisiana fisherman likely thinking about criminal defense

Shrimpers in Louisiana are legally obligated to adhere to certain regulations regarding their vessels, nets, etc. when heading out on waterways to fish. The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries often conducts routine inspections to make sure boaters are following the rules. Such an inspection didn't go so well for one man recently, who is now facing serious drug charges and likely searching for criminal defense support.

Criminal defense problems can arise in a snap

The saying that one thing leads to another couldn't have been truer for two men in Louisiana on a recent Sunday. They were on a boat in Terrebonne Parish when authorities confronted them regarding some red snapping turtles that authorities say trying to sell. There are strict regulations about such things, and not only do officials say the two men did not adhere to the rules, they've also accused them of drug crimes as well.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry spoke about elder care after a recent incident involving a Social Services director.

Exploring criminal defense options in Lake Charles

Residents in Lake Charles or other Louisiana areas who find themselves facing legal problems are often left feeling worried and unsure where to turn for help. Although winding up in a situation that requires aggressive criminal defense does not necessarily mean one has committed a crime, carefully exploring all available options and acting alongside experienced guidance in choosing how best to proceed in court is often key toward obtaining a positive outcome. Whether you've been accused of drunk driving, drug possession or another criminal offense, half the battle is knowing how to connect with appropriate sources of help.

The legal limit: how low will states go?

For more than a decade, a blood alcohol content of .08 has been the legal limit throughout the United States. While penalties for driving under the influence have always varied across the country, until recently you could at least travel out of state and know the legal limit was the same as at home.

Having trouble seeking employment after a conviction?

Were you arrested, charged with a crime, such as DUI or assault, convicted then served a sentence following a trial in a Louisiana court?
