The drug battle in Louisiana continues to be a time-consuming and labor-intensive issue for law enforcement as they try to get a handle on the problem. One aspect of the crisis that is starting to get more media attention is the number of counterfeit pills being produced that are getting into consumer's hands and possibly causing harm. A recent investigation has resulted in drug charges being brought against a 30-year-old gentleman from Baton Rouge.
When couples marry later in life, they typically bring a lot more with them than people in their twenties or early thirties may have. One spouse may have a sizeable retirement account and a house. The other may have a condo that the couple plans to rent out. Both spouses have cars, savings accounts and a good deal of personal property.
The recent inclement weather in Louisiana gave rise to multiple car accidents. The heavy amount of rain and water on the roadways can create flooding and hazardous driving conditions. One accident resulted in the driver facing charges for drunk driving and drug possession. The accident occurred on the northbound side of I-10 near Baton Rouge.
Violence is a significant part of Louisiana's landscape. Video games that are pervasive among youth and the proliferation of guns may contribute to the increase in crimes allegedly committed by juveniles and the need for compassion in their criminal defense. A child who is suspected of committing a violent crime can benefit from a compassionate defense and a court that focuses on rehabilitation in lieu of punishment.
The drug crisis in Louisiana continues unabated, and drugs that may have been on the decrease in popularity and availability seem to be resurging. Methamphetamine is one such drug, and a man from Rodessa was caught up in a police investigation that resulted in his being accused of drug charges. He was arrested and charged following a lengthy investigation.
