Examples of Louisiana Felonies

Generally, crimes, especially violent crimes, against another person are considered felonies. They may include:

  • Second-degree murder – When you intentionally kill or inflict serious bodily harm on another.
  • First-degree murder – Second-degree murder but under aggravating circumstances, such as the killing occurred during a rape or armed robbery.
  • Manslaughter – You commit murder under mitigating circumstances. The murder occurred immediately after sufficient provocation, depriving you of your self-control, like catching your spouse cheating on you.
  • Armed robbery – Robbery with a deadly weapon.
  • Assault with a firearm – The firearm actually discharged during the assault.
  • Aggravated battery – A dangerous weapon was used during the battery.
  • Second-degree battery – You intended to commit serious bodily harm.
  • Second degree aggravated battery – You used a dangerous weapon and intended to inflict serious bodily harm.

Our Louisiana Criminal Defense Lawyers Will Fight for You

A felony charge does not equate a felony conviction; however, given the seriousness of the charge and potential loss of substantial freedoms and rights, it is crucial to seek the assistance of a skilled felony criminal defense attorney.

Personal Attention

We understand that your future is dependent on the outcome of your case. We will help you through each step of the litigation process, as well as inform you of your options, strategies and the ramifications.

Aggressive Representation and Meticulous Preparation

Our felony criminal defense attorney will work hard to obtain the outcome you deserve. From the onset of our representation and irrespective of whether we negotiate a plea bargain or your case goes to trial, we fight to protect your rights and your future by:

  • Conducting an independent investigation
  • Securitizing the evidence and police procedure and conduct
  • Identifying your case weaknesses so we could proactively address them
  • Strategizing your best defenses

Defense Available in Louisiana

There are several defenses we may be able to argue for you:

  • Lack of Evidence – The prosecution failed to provide sufficient evidence to meet his or her burden or failed to prove some element of the crime. For example, the prosecution did not have evidence that you had the intention to kill or inflict serious bodily harm in a second-degree murder charge.
  • Self Defense (S. 14:19or Defense of Others (R.S. 14:22) – Your use of force or violence against the other person was justifiable under the circumstances. The jury may consider the other person’s age and physique, and whether s/he had a weapon.
  • Constitutional Rights Violations – Any evidence obtained from a violation of your constitutional rights is generally inadmissible. Thus, if after your arrest and your request for an attorney the police continued to interrogate you, then any confession could be excluded from evidence.
