Freedom at risk for Louisiana woman re drunk driving charge

A 36-year-old woman in Louisiana is facing serious criminal charges following a recent motor vehicle collision that resulted in multiple fatalities on Christmas Eve. The woman was reportedly driving one of the vehicles involved in the crash. Police claim the crash was caused by drunk driving.

Your criminal record may block many paths

Finding a job is hard enough, even when everything is going your way. If you made top grades in high school, went on to get your degree and have connections with influential people, you may have no problems landing a position that could set you up for the rest of your life. Not many people have those benefits, so even the smallest disadvantage may work against them.

Criminal defense will likely be key factor for woman charged

A man in Louisiana was shot several times by a police officer. In fact, one account of the incident is that the officer shot at the man at least six times, with three bullets hitting him. The man did not survive his injuries, and his girlfriend has been arrested and will likely need a strong criminal defense to fight the charge of attempted first-degree murder leveled against her in conjunction with the incident.

Drunk driving charges do not necessarily lead to conviction

If you are arrested and charged with a crime in Louisiana or any other state, you must be given full due process of the law. Any violation of personal rights or faulty evidence may either play in your favor at trial or result in a complete dismissal of your case by the court. Drunk driving convictions, in particular, can carry severe penalties; therefore, knowing your rights and how to access support to obtain help in fighting against such charges may increase your chances of securing a favorable outcome.

Estate planning dispute: How much cash did the bread man have?

It's always unfortunate when loved ones argue after the head of a family and benefactor passes away. The estate planning process is often a means to avoid such disputes, especially if an estate owner was thorough and exact in the execution of a particular plan. Even when an estate plan exists, however, it does not always keep disagreements from arising among Louisiana families or others.
