Drug charges in Louisiana can be stiff

When you are charged with a drug crime, such as possession, manufacturing or cultivating illegal drugs, you will need to know what the law says about it. Louisiana state laws regarding drug abuse are some of the toughest in the nation. In particular, the marijuana laws are so strict that getting arrested for possession or cultivating this drug can lead to huge fines and jail time. Even though the law states that physicians can prescribe it and you can legally use it, there is no mechanism in place for cultivating or purchasing marijuana.

Different levels of misdemeanors bring different punishments

A misdemeanor is a criminal offense that, while less serious than a felony, is more serious than a mere infraction. It can be fairly easy sometimes to get out from under a misdemeanor by paying a fine. Other times, you may have to go to jail. You could have to do both. At Steve LeBlanc, Ltd., our attorney has over 30 years of experience in helping out people just like you. We can educate you about what your options are and will take the time to explain how the court process works.

What is fraud?

The term "white collar crime" brings up thoughts of fraud by computer hacking and movies that feature famous people committing crime and getting away with it. It is a pretty wide area to encompass. This type of crime is usually brought about through deceit and is motivated by financial gain. There is fraud, embezzlement, tax evasion and money laundering to name a few. Ponzi schemes are the most common today and insider trading isn't far behind in popularity.

Tell your attorney the truth when mounting a criminal defense

Criminal defense is basically a strategy to ensure that the charges against you are mitigated or you are found innocent. Every one of them is different so don't expect your case to resemble anything you have seen before. For instance, if the prosecutor puts you at the scene of the crime, your defense attorney will tell a different story, putting you somewhere else. This doesn't mean that you and your attorney concoct a lie. It means that your attorney will show you as innocent as often and as much as he or she can.
