Two arrested in Louisiana for Medicaid fraud

We all have told a lie at some point. Some of these situations are extremely minor, causing little to no ramification. However, some lies are more serious than telling someone a white lie to boost their emotions. Some lies or acts of deceit could result in a person facing criminal charges. Fraud allegations are serious and should be treated as such. Therefore, defendants should take the time to understand their situation and how best to go about developing a defense that could help them clear their name.

Can you refuse a field sobriety test?

Let's face it; we all hate getting pulled over, no matter the reason or speculation. It can be a frustrating experience because no one wants to face a traffic violation. However, being stopped by law enforcement is possible in Louisiana and elsewhere. And in some cases, it is because officers suspect that a motorist is under the influence of alcohol. When this occurs, police officers will likely take steps to attempt to prove their suspicions that a motorist is drunk driving.

What is wire fraud?

Many people in Louisiana have been hit hard financially due to the number of disasters that have affected the state over the years. Those in such positions are often looking for help, and there are plenty of people and companies out there -- online and in person -- offering it. There are also those who will face accusations of fraud if their services do not produce positive results. Have you found yourself in such legal trouble?

Marijuana laws in Louisiana

Some crimes seem simple and minor because of the way society treats them. Much debate surrounds marijuana usage. Many view it as a harmless substance that has actual medicinal properties. However, this is a harmful perspective to have because the truth of the matter is that it is illegal in most states and could result in serious criminal penalties if the accused is convicted of this specific drug crime.

Helping you assert a defense against drug charges

It could happen at any point and anywhere. When you are driving, a passenger in a vehicle, walking down the street or at your personal residence, an officer could initiate a search based on reasonable suspicion. This search could result in the uncovering of a wide variety of evidence. In some cases, this could result in a person facing drug charges.
