Criminal defense assistance may be sought even without charges

When a Louisiana resident becomes aware that he or she is suspected of illegal activity and is the subject of a police investigation, it is typically a good time to seek legal support. A criminal defense attorney can be contacted long before any charges are filed. This may be what three people who were apprehended in a recent drug raid may decide to do as all were arrested but do not yet face formal criminal charges.

Will those arrested present strong enough criminal defense?

When Louisiana police arrest someone and the process leads to formal criminal charges, the following weeks and months may be filled with court appointments and meetings with lawyers. A key factor to avoiding conviction often lies in the type of criminal defense presented in court. With regard to a recent situation where nine people were arrested at a trailer park, it remains to be seen whether some or all will successfully avoid conviction.

Man's criminal defense situation exacerbated by alleged escape

A string of incidents occurred recently in Louisiana that landed at least eight people behind bars. One of those arrested seems to have made his own criminal defense situation worse by allegedly trying to run away from police before and after he had already been apprehended. The first time, police reportedly caught up to the man with the help of K-9 units. The residence that was the central focus of the investigation is said to belong to the man's father.

How to determine which criminal defense strategy is best

Being charged with a crime in Louisiana is no small matter, regardless the particular details of an individual situation. Even being suspect in a most minor offense is enough to damage someone's personal and professional reputation. Not every criminal charge leads to conviction; however, many times a positive outcome hinges on the type of criminal defense presented in court.

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 Louisiana officers who arrived were part of a special drug task force. 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.

Hospital patient and wife facing criminal defense problems

An incident occurred in a Louisiana hospital that likely came as a surprise to the staff members involved. The situation led to a hospital patient and his wife needing criminal defense help. The events unfolded on a recent day when a nurse walked into the man's room to check on him.

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. In other situations, such as one that recently occurred in Morehouse, traffic stops can quickly turn into serious criminal defense situations if the attending officer suspects a drug-related crime has been committed.

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.
