  • Reduced to Misdemeanor
    Possession of Controlled Dangerous Substance

    Client was arrested after traffic stop resulted in search and seizure of illegal drugs in the vehicle and arguably in possession of our client.

    Outcome: Charge was reduced to misdemeanor; our client was allowed to receive credit for time already served since the arrest and was immediately released from incarceration upon the entry of a plea. Furthermore, case was deferred under sentencing provision (Article 894) allowing for expungement.

  • Charges Dismissed
    DWI and Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

    Charge: DWI (LSA R.S. 14:98), Failure to Register as a Sex Offender (LSA R.S. 15:542.1.4(A)(1) and a Probation Violation in a separate parish for Carnal Knowledge of a Juvenile

    Case Description: Client was arrested in Calcasieu Parish on a long list of charges, the most notable of which were DWI and Failing to Register as a Sex Offender. The sex offense stemmed from a charge that our client pled to back in 2011 (prior to hiring our firm) and so our client was facing revocation for failing to register and potentially seven (7) years in jail in addition to the new charges obtained in Calcasieu parish.

    Outcome: We were able to get all of the Calcasieu parish charges dismissed completely and then turned our attention to the probation violation. Ultimately, the probation violation was passed without date and finally dismissed. Our client continued on probation to a successful conclusion.
