Drug charges have long term ramifications

Law enforcement agencies in Louisiana continue to battle the drug crisis that is consuming so much of the nation. The crisis is a continuing one that shows little sign of abating as we end one year and begin another. The failure of one person to appear in court led to the arrest of three additional people who now face drug charges.

Factors that can impact breath test accuracy

Seeing those blue lights come on in your rearview mirror can be a horrible feeling, and you may wind up feeling even worse if the law enforcement official who pulls you over asks you to submit to a breath test. Breath tests, when conducted correctly and under the right conditions, are often precise, but there are several outside factors that can make their results less-than-accurate.

Drunk driving can lead to a bad situation

Winter is often a bad time for car accidents in Louisiana as it ushers in the party season associated with Christmas and New Year's. The holiday festivities frequently include alcohol and people may drink more than normal and may not be aware of how alcohol can affect them when behind the wheel. Sadly, accidents that involve drunk driving frequently result in fatalities.

Designating a driver is one method of avoiding drunk driving

The holiday season has arrived in Louisiana, and with it the holiday party season. There is a significant increase in the number of parties and other social engagements in the month of December. Many of these engagements will involve alcohol. Sadly, that can also mean an increase in incidents of drunk driving, which can contribute to holiday fatalities.

Important to know one's rights when facing drug charges

The battle against illegal drugs continues to rage in Louisiana. Law enforcement officers are working tirelessly to attempt to stem the tide of illegal drugs. Undercover investigations can result in arrests and drug charges. The people facing charges are entitled to a defense and are presumed innocent unless and until they are proven guilty in a court of law.
