Drug charges and drag racing don't mix well

Drag racing is never a good idea. When drag racing is combined with drug use the potential for a tragic accident rises dramatically. This was the case in a recent fatality resulting from a drag race in the New Orleans area. In addition to vehicular homicide, a young man is also facing Louisiana drug charges.

Faced with drug charges, knowing one's rights is vital

The battle against the opioid epidemic and other illegal drugs continues in Louisiana. A man was arrested in New Orleans following a police chase. The man pleaded guilty to numerous charges, including drug charges, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Five arrested on drug charges following high speed chase

The drug problem continues to be an issue in Louisiana. Drug charges were brought against five people in St. Tammany Parrish recently. The arrests followed a high speed chase that began when officers showed up at a house to execute a search warrant near Abbita Springs. Upon seeing the officers, a person at the residence reportedly got into a car and took off at a high rate of speed.

UPS driver is facing DUI and drug charges

A UPS driver was recently arrested in Louisiana and charged with a DUI. It was reported that she had been seen swerving on the road and that the authorities were notified. After she was pulled over she reportedly agreed to field sobriety tests but did not pass them. The driver was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, and she also faces drug charges. The incident happened in West Carroll Parish.

More drug charges filed in the ongoing battle

Law enforcement officers continue to fight the drug crisis in Louisiana. A recent bust in northeast Louisiana, in West Carroll Parish, is a new installment in that effort. Two men were arrested in the bust on suspicion of dealing illegal substances and face multiple charges, including drug charges.

Arrest leads to indictment on drug charges

The drug problem in Louisiana continues to run rampant. In an effort to stem the tide the authorities may be stepping up the effort to bring those involved in distribution to justice. While this is a noble endeavor, anyone facing drug charges is entitled to a criminal defense. A person who has been indicted is presumed innocent until -- and only if -- proven guilty in court and beyond a reasonable doubt.

Grand jury investigation leads to arrests on drug charges

Before a drug arrest is made in Louisiana, there may be a lot of work done behind the scenes before the arrest is carried out. This may include gathering evidence and conducting lengthy observation of any alleged illegal activity. When police officers believe they have sufficient evidence, drug charges may then be brought against a suspect or suspects. Being charged with a crime can be very scary and intimidating. Anyone so charged is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Another overdose death leads to drug charges

The opioid crisis and resulting overdose deaths continue to plague our society and the state of Louisiana. When a tragic death occurs that appears to be the result of a drug overdose, family and loved ones may search for a culprit on whom to blame the death of their loved one. Such a search can lead to drug charges.

Months long investigation leads to multiple drug charges

When a investigation over the course of a number of months leads to an arrest, those being charged with a crime may be confused and unsure of what to do. When an arrest leads to drug charges in Louisiana, the person may also be scared. The officer making the arrest is doing his or her job. Once a person is charged, he or she may benefit from legal counsel.
