Louisiana card game leaves 2 preparing criminal defense

Many people in Louisiana enjoy spending time in card rooms. In a casino near New Orleans, a round of cards ended with casino and state police investigators reviewing video surveillance of the game. Following their review, they accused the dealer and a player of cheating. This is now an active case in the criminal justice system where both men are likely focused on preparing a criminal defense.

What type of criminal defense works best to fight drug charges?

It's logical to assume that one of the last ways most Louisiana residents want to start their new year is by facing serious drug charges in court. Even if one is able to avoid conviction, merely being charged with a drug crime can cause great harm to a person's reputation and standing in a community. There are at least four people (and likely many more) who clearly understand this as they prepare to defend themselves regarding their recent arrests.

Key factors to successful criminal defense

Facing misdemeanor or felony charges in Louisiana is definitely no small matter. Especially if it is not the first time you've been arrested and charged with a crime in this state, the outcome of your situation may impact the rest of your life. Depending on the circumstances, avoiding conviction and minimizing long-term consequences of a particular incident may be quite challenging. Successful outcomes often hinge on aggressive criminal defense.

Bourbon Street visit leads to need for criminal defense

Louisiana is a high traffic tourist area, especially during Mardi Gras and New Years. Not all visits to the area go smoothly, however. This appears evident in the case of one man who wound up needing a criminal defense after managers of a particular business asked him to vacate the premises, but he supposedly refused and wound up being searched and charged with drug crimes.

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.

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.
