Louisiana's Increased Efforts To Find And Prosecute Trafficking Offenses
In an effort to curb drug trafficking, Louisiana participates in the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) program, which was established by Congress to identify regions with extensive drug problems and step up awareness and enforcement efforts in these areas. HIDTA's efforts have led to many individuals in Louisiana being charged with trafficking and related drug crimes, especially in situations involving violent drug trafficking and the shipment of illicit drugs and proceeds over Louisiana highways. When these cases go to prosecutors, they use all of the resources available to them to seek convictions.
Whether your charges stem from a HIDTA operation or other circumstances, it is vital to contact an attorney right away. Call 504-610-5645 for a free consultation.
With law enforcement agencies and prosecutors devoting so many resources to trafficking cases, you need an attorney who will help you level the playing field and give you a chance to prove your innocence. At The Law Office of Ernest J. Bauer, Jr., I provide you with exactly that kind of representation, and I will do everything in my power to make sure that all applicable defense strategies are used to seek dismissal of the charges or minimize the sentence you receive. During my more than 10 years as a Covington drug trafficking attorney, my proactive approach has allowed me to obtain successful results for many clients in possession cases and other drug-related matters.
Habitual Offender Charges
If you have been convicted of drug-related felonies in the past, whether in Louisiana or somewhere else in the country, the District Attorney has the option of seeking amplified charges under habitual offender laws if you are arrested again. These charges carry greatly increased sentences and a much higher likelihood of conviction, so you need my aggressive defense representation to avoid these harsh consequences.
