Criminal defense: Lake Charles accident spawns DWI charges

When anyone in our state is suspected of committing a crime, they may feel that the road ahead is bleak. Fortunately, many have certain rights under the law, such as the ability to launch a criminal defense against the allegations. Lake Charles authorities have charged an 18-year-old woman with DWI following a crash she was involved in with a Louisiana State Police officer. According to reports, the accident caused five injuries, but their exact nature and extent is unknown. All of those injured were in the vehicle with the woman who has been charged.

Louisiana criminal defense: Eyewitness testimony not always accurate

News reports of a purported crime often show how little information police have to solve a particular case. The information provided to them usually comes from victims and sometimes other witnesses. When the only witnesses are also the victims of the crime, their recollections may be affected by the stress they were under at the time of the incident, particularly if it was a robbery or violent crime. Those details provided to police typically play an important part in a criminal defense on behalf of someone subsequently charged with a crime.
