What is a Misdemeanor?

If you are accused of a misdemeanor you can face a maximum of 6 months in jail or a five hundred dollar fine. Even worse, certain misdemeanors (DWI 1 and 2, Domestic Abuse Battery) carry mandatory jail time, mandatory probation and mandatory community service and mandatory classes and programs. Protecting your freedom, finances and free time from the consequences of a misdemeanors conviction begin before the police report’s ink is dry. If you believe that you are being rushed to settle or plead your case, you can trust Keith to take the extra time to review charges and the State’s evidence with you. Investing this extra time can lead to a credible trial defense or open a door to pre-trial diversion or intervention.

Domestic Abuse Battery.

Louisiana’s Domestic Abuse Battery carries mandatory jail time, mandatory probation, required batterer’s intervention courses and mandatory community service. Even worse, a DAB conviction will make it a Louisiana and Federal crime to own or possess a firearm.

Possession of Marijuana.

Louisiana recently changed its marijuana laws to reduce the potential sentence for a first-time offender. If this is (or isn’t) your first marijuana charge, you can trust Keith to take advantage of the changes in the marijuana law to your benefit.

Other Misdemeanors

Battery, Theft, Damage to Property, Trespassing, Assault, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Illegal Discharge of a Firearm can be charged as a misdemeanor and potentially devastate your freedom and reputation. Let Keith put his experience to work in your case and challenge the prosecutor’s evidence at trial or reach a favorable end to your case.
