Facing drug charges can be a frightening experience

The battle against heroin and other opioids is an ongoing one in Louisiana and all over the country. It is a multi-pronged battle being fought on many fronts. Law enforcement is endeavoring to slow the spread of the scourge by attempting to break up the many drug rings believed to be operating in the area. In a recent case, drug charges were brought against 19 suspected members of a heroin ring believed to be operating in New Orleans and in St. Tammany Parish.

Traffic stop can result in drug charges

Seeing flashing red and blue lights in one's rear-view mirror can cause fear that can lead to a fight or flight reaction. In a recent incident in Louisiana such an incident may have caused a driver to flee and a police chase to ensue. The driver of the pursued vehicle and his passenger are now facing multiple charges, including drug charges.

What Louisiana’s implied consent law means for you

Drinking and driving do not mix. Louisiana has steep penalties for those who drive while impaired. Even worse, when alcohol slows your reaction time, you have an increased chance of injuring yourself or someone else on the road. As such, you should always arrange for a designated driver, rideshare or another way home after a night on the town. 

College students find themselves in need of criminal defense

Students have recently been arrested and charged with crimes at Dillard University located in Louisiana. The alleged crimes involve rape and sexual assault. There are at least four active cases being investigated by the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD). The students charged may be in need of a criminal defense.
