Are you facing problems in college that are alcohol related?

Do you know that many Louisiana college students and others throughout the nation say that they experienced peer pressure to drink alcohol within days of their arrivals on campus? If you can relate to that, you may have firsthand experience with some of the consequences of alcohol consumption in college.  

Understanding what constitutes a felony DUI

In Louisiana and other states across the nation, it is clear that drivers should not be under the influence of alcohol while operating a motor vehicle. Despite this knowledge, many drivers fail to uphold this obligation to drive safely. Thus, when a motorist is accused of drunk driving, he or she could face serious penalties.

What is money laundering?

Earning money, no matter the amount, often causes a person to become protective of it. For some, this means investing it, and for others it might mean using it immediately to pay bills. No matter how the money is used, individuals often seek to protect their earned money. However, if money does not come from a legitimate source, individuals may take steps to disguise their funds in order to avoid facing serious penalties.

Driver of head-on crash faces DUI and vehicular homicide

Having a drink or two here and there is typically not an issue. For those of legal drinking age, it is expected that one will drink responsibly. However, this can look different from one person to the other, as alcohol tolerance can vastly change from one person to the next. And even if a motorist believes that they are fine to drive, it is possible that he or she may be over the limit. In the event that law enforcement suspects drunk driving in a traffic stop or following an automobile collisions, it is possible that the driver could face a drunk driving charge.

Studies show binge drinking is popular in Louisiana colleges

If you are a student at a Louisiana college or university, you likely look forward to enjoying the free time you get to spend with friends. After all, the rigors of collegiate academics can be stressful and tiring, and it's only natural that you would be eager for rest and relaxation when you are not in classes or studying for exams. It's no secret that the college social scene often includes alcohol.  

Defense options for drug possession charges

This situation is very serious, as being convicted of drug possession could result in harsh penalties. Because of this, exploring defense options is the best step to take.
