Drunk driving and other traffic violations are among the most commonly charged crimes in Louisiana. People from all walks of life can be affected, and many people charged with these offenses have had not previous firsthand experience with the criminal justice system. The consequences of a conviction can be severe, as the penalties may include a suspended license, heavy fines and time behind bars.
If you are a repeat offender, penalties are much higher. If your arrest involves injury to another person, you may be facing felony charges.
It’s important to remember that you have the right to a defense, and it is crucial that you have help from a skilled criminal defense attorney.
