Criminal defense can focus on rehabilitation in juvenile crime

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 Big Easy, one-way streets and criminal defense

New Orleans' nickname, the Big Easy, stems from its reputation as a fun city where the good times roll. Bourbon Street is the focal point for the good times in the city. On occasion, trouble breaks out that can cause the police to have to intervene to ensure revelers safety. Such was the case on a recent Saturday night when police tried to stop a man who was driving the wrong way on a one-way street. The person responsible might benefit from a little Louisiana criminal defense assistance.

College students find themselves in need of criminal defense

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.

Recent arrestees likely focused on criminal defense

Mardi Gras 2019 is fast approaching. New Orleans is a favorite destination for those seeking to have a good time before the season of Lent begins.

Recent roundup leaves scores in need of criminal defense

The New Orleans Police Department recently conducted a roundup of individuals suspected of committing a variety of criminal offenses. The sweep resulted in the arrest of 45 people throughout the city, some of whom are facing charges for murder, attempted murder and other serious charges.

Youthful indiscretion can lead to need for criminal defense

One's teen years are supposed to be a time of adventure, risk-taking and self-discovery. Too often that can lead a young person down the wrong path. When that path runs afoul of the law, it can leave a young person facing the reality of needing a criminal defense in Louisiana.

Robbery suspects can benefit from a criminal defense

When a robbery occurs, an investigation frequently begins with information garnered from witness accounts. The information collected can lead to arrests based on the information provided by a witness. This was the case in a recent incident in McKenzie County, Louisiana. According the Constitution of the United States, the suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and have the right to a criminal defense.

Repeat DUI offenders benefit from strong criminal defense

Penalties for drunk driving convictions in Louisiana are strict to begin with. Even a first offense can mean mandatory jail and the potential for thousands in fines as well as other consequences. It is understandable that subsequent convictions can bring severe penalties, so building a strong criminal defense is critical. Since many DUI arrests are based on subjective evidence, it is always a wise idea to seek legal advice before facing the charges in court.
