Louisiana jockeys charged with a crime

Many Louisiana residents are familiar with the racetrack at Evangeline Downs. Located in Opelousas, the facility is a site where fans can watch racehorses and place bets on their favorites. Evangeline Downs has been in the headlines of late, not for any achievements within the racing world, but over allegations that three of their jockeys have taken actions to fix multiple races. The men have now been charged with a crime in connection to those allegations.

Reality TV star facing sex crime charges

Many Louisiana residents are familiar with the reality television show Sons of Guns. A former star of that show, and the founder of the gun store Red Jacket Firearms, has been accused of serious offenses against minors. As news of his initial arrest spread, additional people have come forward to make claims against him, and he now faces multiple sex crime charges.

Former police chief charged with a crime

Many Louisiana residents are shocked at the news of a former chief of police who has been accused of serious criminal acts. The man was once the police chief in the small town of Evergreen in Avoyelles Parish. He has been arrested under suspicion of the murder of his wife. Whenever a public figure is charged with a crime, news of those accusations travels quickly, and that is certainly the case here.

Religious youth mentor accused of sex crimes

Louisiana residents are shocked and saddened with the news that an area youth minister has been accused of taking advantage of some of the teenage children with whom he worked. As media coverage of his recent arrest on sex crimes charges continues to spread, many in the area are concerned about the safety of their own children while in school, playing sports or attending church functions. The case includes very serious allegations, but it is important to remember that the man accused of these crimes has the right to be presumed innocent until and unless proven otherwise.

When a parent is unable to provide for the care of their child, family members often step in to help.

In a recent case, two caregivers from the same Louisiana family have been charged with a crime in connection to the alleged abuse of a minor child.
