It is difficult to meet someone who does not have some form of social media account. While social media has had a significant impact on how people communicate with one another, some claim that these changes are not always positive, that it can sometimes spark unnecessary conflict. In fact, a woman in Louisiana has recently been arrested and now is likely preparing her criminal defense following an interaction allegedly sparked by a social media dispute.
The incident happened one night on a day in June. According to reports, two vehicles drove up to a residence where three women were standing. Reports claim that shots were fired from one of the vehicle, injuring all the women. They were transported to the hospital where they are expected to recover.
Police claim that an investigation revealed that the incident began as a result of conflict beginning with a post on social media. The alleged victims reportedly took offense to something the suspects posted, sparking a back and forth through text message. A 21-year-old woman was recently arrested and now face three counts of first degree attempted murder. Police have not made any other arrests.
Assuming that the Louisiana woman was in one of the vehicles that was allegedly at the scene at the time of the shooting, it is unclear how police determined her role in the incident. The charges she faces could have serious consequence if she is convicted. As a result, the decisions she makes as part of her criminal defense are critical. To help her fully understand her options, she may choose to hire an experienced attorney who can guide her through the process.
