80s icon Corey Feldman says drug charges will be dropped

Louisiana fans of 1980s movies starring Corey Feldman may be closely following a developing story involving the former actor turned singer. Feldman and several members of his band were recently traveling through this state on tour, but their plans were interrupted by police. They are now facing drug charges for marijuana possession.

Drug charges do not necessarily have to mean a criminal record

Experimentation is the hallmark of youth. As young adults here in Louisiana and elsewhere attempt to find their place in the world, they can make mistakes that put them squarely in the sights of the criminal justice system. This does not necessarily mean that they will end up with a criminal record, which could affect their future endeavors such as going to college. First-time offenders often have other options that can keep their records clean and give them a chance to put the mistake behind them. This can happen with all sorts of issues, including drug charges.

Louisiana parish offers alternative to those facing drug charges

No one sets out to lose his or her life to addiction. Many Louisiana residents who suffer from addiction end up facing drug charges. Whether those individuals should end up in jail or prison has become a debate among many. In fact, at least one parish instituted a program about 15 years ago to help those who qualify to beat their addictions to drugs and is considered one of the best in the state.

Louisiana woman's shoes cause her to face drug charges

People say that possession is nine-tenths of the law, but does that extend the soles of your shoes? An agent with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries initiated a traffic stop based on what was reported as erratic movements of a vehicle. The woman driving was placed under arrest for driving under the influence, but by the time she was booked into the local jail, she was facing drug charges as well.

Facing drug charges? Challenge the evidence and investigation

As many Louisiana residents can attest, being accused of and arrested for a crime can be frightening. Depending on the circumstances, you could be facing jail time or even prison time, along with other penalties, so it is important to begin planning your defense as quickly as possible. When it comes to drug charges, this often means reviewing the evidence and investigation that led to your arrest since circumstances are not always as they seem.
