Criminal defense: former police officer charged for drug crimes

A former Louisiana police corporal is accused of being involved with the distribution of an illegal substance during off-duty hours. Following a brief investigation, he was arrested by police in his area, as well as Lake Charles authorities, and charged with multiple drug-related offenses. Since a judge set his bond at $257,000, he might choose to use his time in police custody to explore his options for a strong criminal defense.

A Lake Charles man was recently arrested for his alleged role in a recent homicide. Police charged the man with second-degree murder.

Police in Louisiana recently arrested a man for what they believe was an attempt at a theft. He is charged with resisting an officer as well as simple burglary of a religious building.

Business owner faces criminal charges

Social media is much more than just a distraction or way to waste time on the internet. Using social media is now an everyday part of people's lives in Lake Charles, and they use it to share pictures, news and details about their personal lives.

However, police claim that one man may have shared a little too much in one of his social media posts, which they then shared with the public after filing criminal charges.

Criminal defense: Man charged for ambulance theft

Police claim that a man in Louisiana recently stole an emergency ambulance.

Criminal defense: Limitations when it comes to search and seizure

Facing the police is an overwhelming and confusing situation for many people in Lake Charles. Despite having very clear protections when interacting with law enforcement officers, many people are unsure of those rights. Some officers take advantage of this uncertainty to push past the legal limitations of searches and seizures. Any violation of search and seizure law is upsetting, but can be helpful when building a criminal defense.
