Baton Rouge man arrested on multiple drug charges

Our past can be very relevant in our present and future. Whether it happened a decade ago or a year ago, a criminal record can haunt a person, especially when an individual is accused of a crime. A criminal allegation alone could mean serious penalties; however, a criminal history could make the consequences harsher. Thus, no matter if this is your first criminal charge or not, it is important for defendants to explore their criminal defense options.

According to recent reports, a Baton Rouge man was arrested for various drug charges as well as other criminal allegations. Reports indicate that the man was wanted on several charges when law enforcement in Ascension Parish apprehended the 41-year-old man. Police claim that the man was wanted for heroine distribution, possession of marijuana, aggravated obstruction of highway, aggravated flight from an officer, reckless operation and disobedience to signs.

Along with facing this long list of charges, the man has a lengthy criminal history. Apparently, the man has over 40 arrests on his record, which include charges for aggravated burglary, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and second-degree battery. This criminal history could impact the defendant, especially when it comes to the penalties he might face if convicted on any or all of the charges.

Although a criminal history is a factor in a criminal case, it does not mean a criminal defense is not possible. In fact, no matter a person's history, a criminal defense action could call into question the evidence collected, whether it was collected lawfully and if a lawful arrest occurred. A criminal defense approaSch could help a defendant clear their name, helping them reduce or even dismiss the charges against them.
