What does it mean to be released on your own recognizance?

When you are arrested for a crime, your top priority is likely trying to get out of jail and live your life until your trial. While you might have to post bail to get out of jail, it is sometimes possible to be released on your own recognizance. If the judge does give you an OR release, you should make sure that you attend the hearings for your case.

Laissez les bon temps rouler -- carefully when alcohol is present

The good old saying "laissez les bon temps rouler" is the battle cry of people in this area. During the summer months, the parties are raging and the alcohol is likely flowing freely. During these parties, you should keep your wits about you and remember that if you have to drive home you need to watch what you drink. In the event that you do have to drive after drinking, you are taking the chance that you will be pulled over for the suspicion of drunk driving.

Drunk driving arrests and convictions can affect employability

Drunk driving charges can affect your life from the day that you are arrested. If you are convicted of the drunk driving charge, the effects the conviction can have on your life don't end once you complete your sentence. Drunk driving convictions, and in some cases drunk driving charges, can have a profound impact on your employability. This is especially true if your career includes employers who perform background checks on employees.

Some drug charge penalties are changing in Louisiana

With the exception of some crimes related to marijuana, Louisiana still has very harsh penalties for drug convictions. Some of the laws related to drug charges are changing, so it is crucial that anyone who is arrested for the changing charges learns which law he or she is being charged with violating because the penalties can vary.
