Criminal defense: Assistant principal arrested for DUI

In what likely came as a troubling twist to parents and employees at a Louisiana school, an administrator was arrested for drunk driving during the school's alcohol awareness week. Accused of being nearly three-times the legal .08 percent for driving, the assistant principal was actually arrested after arriving at the school where she works. It is unclear if she has any criminal defense plans as of yet, but many defendants in these types of situations choose to take an early approach to the matter.

Can casino marker debts lead to criminal charges?

Visiting a casino is supposed to be a fun experience that may or may not pay off by the end of the night.

If you owe casino marker debt or are potentially facing criminal charges for fraud or issuing a worthless check, you need the right help on your side.

Criminal defense: Driver accused of causing deadly accident

Louisiana police claim that a drunk driver caused a serious car accident that injured two teenagers and killed one other. The driver is facing multiple charges, including driving while impaired, vehicular homicide and no seat belt, among others. These types of charges are quite serious, but a carefully constructed criminal defense may help minimize any potential consequences for Lake Charles defendants. 

Criminal defense: Man facing hundreds of criminal counts

A 60-year-old man is in police custody for allegedly possessing and distributing significant amounts of prescription drugs. His arrest came from an ongoing investigation into suspected drug activity in the area, which has so far yielded 53 warrants and 221 felony charges. Consequences for felony drug charges are severe, and minimizing the impact often requires a more intensive criminal defense approach for people in Lake Charles.

Louisiana woman likely weighing criminal defense options

Many medical professionals and scientists say synthetic cannabinoids, sometimes referred to as "fake marijuana," are more dangerous than natural marijuana. This drug is derived from manufactured chemicals and is often smoked when sprayed on shredded plant materials or used in the form of oils that are placed in electronic smoking devices. A Louisiana woman is now in need of a strong criminal defense after police claim they found synthetic marijuana and other narcotics in her home.  

Strong criminal defense may help avoid similar outcomes

A woman in Louisiana who worked in an accounting department for an oil company was recently sentenced in federal court. A U.S. District Court judge accepted the woman's guilty plea on two counts of electronic wire fraud. The judge informed the woman she'd be spending the next several years in jail. While conviction is not the outcome any defendant hopes for, it also does not necessarily mean the end to one's criminal defense; in fact, if legal problems arise with regard to satisfying a criminal sentence, it is best to act alongside experienced guidance to try to resolve them.

Man recently released from jail needs criminal defense again

The federal government says a man has been locked up in a Louisiana jail cell because he committed tax fraud. It's a complicated situation that involves the man's parents and his girlfriends as well.

Civilian complaint led to need for criminal defense in Louisiana

An unidentified person is said to have called in a complaint to Louisiana police regarding suspected illegal drug activity in a particular parish.

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.
