Louisiana's public defender system comes under fire

One of the principles on which our justice system stands is the idea that every person is innocent until proven guilty and has access to competent legal representation. That means when you're accused of a crime and don't have the money to hire an attorney, you'll be assigned a public defender. According to a new lawsuit, however, the poorest people in our state aren't getting the defense they deserve.

Consider all defenses for drug possession charges

Many crimes have consequences. When you are caught, charged and convicted of a crime, the consequences will vary, but before you pay a fine, go to jail or anything else, you will have to be proven guilty. Should you play your cards right, you actually may be able to get the charges dropped or reduced and not be punished at all.

Possible defenses when charged with drunk driving

Getting behind the wheel of any vehicle after consuming alcohol is never a good idea, no matter how little you have had to drink. Despite the laws against drunk driving, many people still decide to operate a vehicle after they've enjoyed a few alcoholic beverages. Some are able to get away with this, but others will be caught. It is likely that they will be charged with a DUI, but if they have a good defense, they could avoid conviction.

Actions people take when committing tax evasion

When someone commits a nonviolent crime, like tax evasion, they often believe they will get away with it. As with any crime, if you are accused of a white collar crime, there will be consequences for your actions. Before you are convicted, and a sentence can be handed down, an investigation will be done. At this point, to prove your guilt, authorities will look at a number of things, including what actions you took to avoid paying taxes.
