Baton Rouge violent crimes: Man arrested after fight

Police in Baton Rouge were called to break up a fight that started on Christmas Eve on Bluewater Drive. One person was ultimately arrested and is now facing attempted murder, weapons, and property damage charges. Violent crimes of this nature are not treated lightly in criminal court. As such, the accused deserves the best criminal defense available to him.

How does Louisiana treat an ID theft charge?

Identity theft comes in so many different forms these days. The schemes to take others' identities keep evolving, and some are actually quite complex. With the damage identity theft does to its victims, the state of Louisiana has taken a tough stance on this type of crime. Anyone facing an ID theft charge could face serious consequences if prosecuting attorneys are able to achieve a conviction. 

Drinking and driving more prevalent certain times of the year

Petty theft is a misdemeanor offense

Many Louisiana residents may be confused about the different types of theft that are recognized under state law and how they are treated by law enforcement officials. Petty theft, for example, is a relatively minor crime that is classified as a misdemeanor offense. That is the overall gist of it. There is a whole lot more to know about petty theft, which will be covered in this week's column.
