Louisiana law and cocaine crimes

There are many different types of drug crimes that exist for the laws of any state, ranging from possession, to sale and more. Not only are there many different types of drug crimes, but the penalties for each crime are different for each drug. As such, it can be difficult to keep track of what precisely the penalties for each drug and each crime are. This is why legal assistance is so highly recommended.

What are Louisiana's laws regarding indecent exposure?

When most people think of sex crimes, they imagine sexual acts that are performed without the consent of another individual, such as rape or sexual assault. While these are arguably the most common sex crimes and certainly the most severe, it is still important to remember that there are other sex crimes that come with legal penalties, albeit significantly lower penalties. Some of these acts are called prohibited consensual sexual acts.

The most common types of drug crimes are things like trafficking, possessing, selling or otherwise distributing dangerous, illegal drugs such as cocaine and heroin. However, it is important to note that these are not the only types of drug crimes, nor are these the only types of drugs for which you can face criminal accusation. The law connects many different drugs with criminal activity, and if you are ever accused of any crime involving these dangerous drugs, you could be facing drug charges.

Legal defense against sexual assault allegations

Many people are familiar with the term sexual assault, but for most, it specifically refers to instances of forced penetration. Some people have difficulties differentiating between rape and sexual assault, with many failing to recognize the wide scope that encompasses what sexual assault truly is. The truth is that sexual assault does occur when one individual engages in unwanted sexual penetration of another individual, but this is far from the only instance.

Man sentenced in drunk driving case

If you are accused of a crime, no matter how minor you think the crime may be, it is in your best interests to speak with an attorney. An attorney can offer you valuable insight into the crime of which you are accused and help you take legal action in your defense. The right defense can help you have your charges reduced, or your sentence made less severeĀ or even secure an acquittal.

Understanding probable cause for DUI accusations

If you are familiar at all with DUI law, you have likely heard that police must have probable cause to pull you over in the first place. What this means is that even if you are accused of drunk driving for a legitimate reason, such as failing a sobriety test, the police officer must have had reasonable suspicion that you were intoxicated in the first place. Essentially, a police officer cannot simply pull you over at random and test you for drunk driving.

What is white collar crime?

White collar crime is not necessarily the most glamorous or interesting area of criminal law, which is probably why it does not feature as heavily in television shows and movies as much as homicide and robbery. However, this does not mean that white collar crime is not a serious criminal offense that can cost those who are convicted years of their life in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Suspect arrested in Louisiana murder case

Police have recently made an arrest in connection with a murder in Greensburg, Louisiana. According to police, they received a tip about a suspect's location, at which point they moved to make the arrest. The arrest occurred without incident, according to police, and they expect to make more arrests in connection with the case. The suspect is facing first-degree murder charges, but no other information was revealed about the crime or the situation.

With so little information available, it is difficult to determine exactly what the circumstances of this murder are and how the suspect fits into the equation. There are no details about why police suspected the individual who has since been arrested, but no matter what the circumstances are, it is important for this individual to remember that he still has rights. This includes the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney, which can be crucial when facing murder or homicide charges.

Legal assistance for Louisiana drug crimes

There are many different types of criminal activity that can incur the ire of the law, and drug crimes are among the most common. Nearly everyone is familiar with drug crimes in some way or another, including the knowledge that the possession, manufacturing or selling of drugs, such as heroin and cocaine, are illegal all across the country. Because of this, if you are accused of a drug crime, it is highly recommended that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

White collar crime accusations can range from fraud and embezzlement to extortion and bribery, and many people may find themselves unfamiliar with each accusation.
