Criminal Defense Lawyer Kenner Louisiana
Criminal Defense work in Kenner, Lousiana and Jefferson Parish is a slightly different then in other jurisdictions. Misdemeanor cases in Kenner can go to three different courts: the City of Kenner Court, 1st Parish Court on David Drive in Metairie, or the 24th Judicial District in Gretna. All D.W.I. cases will go to first parish court, and all Class Four cases (misdemeanors) and up go to the 24th J.D.C. The Weiser Law firm handles many traffic ticket defenses in Jefferson Parish for a $100.00 plus court costs.
When a person is arrested for felony charges in Kenner generally they are brought to the Kenner City Jail before being transported to the Jefferson Parish Prison in Gretna. Within 48 the defendant is generally brought in front of the Commissioner Judge in the Main Court House. After a bond is set they are returned to the Jail. Many defedants will be released within a day or so for prison overcrowding if they are charged with a non-violent or non-sexual crime.
Once a defendant is released it is very important to hire an Criminal Defense Attorney. The Weiser Law Firm uses this time to talk to the screening department at the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office. Prior to the charges being accepted there maybe an opportunity to reduce the prosecuted charges from the District Attorney’s Office, also other options such as the deversion program are done at this time.
The Weiser Law Firm practices exclusively in Orleans and Jefferson Parish Courts making us very familiar with Court Personnel and Assistant District Attorney’s. Let us help you in your criminal defense matter today.
