Jeanerette raid yields illegal drugs, firearms and three arrests

Drug offenses are taken seriously by law enforcement and the courts throughout the country, Louisiana included. Although they may be legal when prescribed by a physician, some drugs are prohibited from being sold without a prescription. Whether an illegal substance, such as methamphetamine or a prescription-only drug, a person caught possessing and using such drugs can face serious consequences that include prison time and substantial fines. These possible consequences await three Louisiana men who are being accused of harboring drugs with the intent to distribute, according to prosecutors in Iberia Parish.

Be wary of unintentional mistakes that lead to Medicare fraud

At times, small oversights and not fully understanding the regulations can lead to serious consequences. This best describes Medicare fraud cases where a medical practitioner can face charges even though there was no intent to defraud in the first place. To avoid such complications, Louisiana residents are advised to pay close attention to common mistakes that often lead to fraud charges.

Store owner, employees face drug and gun charges

Sometimes, being-or working-in the wrong place at the wrong time can have serious consequences. Such may be the case in a recent incident when a store owner and his two employees were charged after police found drugs and firearms in the convenience store where they worked.
