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. New Orleans has been the scene of great revelry and also significant crime during the Mardi Gras celebrations. Those arrested will need to turn their attention to their criminal defense in Louisiana.

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. Per their constitutional right, these Louisiana residents are entitled to criminal defense counsel to help them fight the charges they face.

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.

Robbery suspects could benefit from criminal defense

Robbery is an ongoing problem in areas of Louisiana. A young man was arrested recently on charges of armed robbery. The individual, a 27-year-old male, was apprehended in a parking lot in the West Lake Forrest area. He allegedly robbed a Chevron station in the Little Woods neighborhood recently. The man is fully entitled to a criminal defense.

Criminal defense needed in alleged drug deal

Violent crimes and drug crimes continue to be a problem in Louisiana. Two men who were shot in a park in La Marque on the Fourth of July are now alleged to have been there to commit a robbery. This is according to reports from the La Marque Police Department. The accused have a right to a criminal defense.

Teenagers, drugs and criminal defense

Teenagers under the influence of illegal drugs in Louisiana can exhibit strange behavior and may not be fully aware of their actions. This is no excuse for inappropriate or illegal behavior, nor should it deny a person's right to a criminal defense. Regardless of the circumstances of an arrest, an accused individual is still presumed innocent until -- and only if -- found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Teenagers preparing criminal defense after a high speed chase

The flashing lights of an approaching police car can alarm anyone in Louisiana. Being a teenage driver and seeing flashing lights coming up from behind can be frightening. The fear can cause a fight or flight instinct to kick in, resulting in a high speed chase and subsequent arrest of frightened teenagers. When this occurs, the focus shifts to considering criminal defense options.
