Mr. Barkemeyer represents clients who have been arrested or received a summons/ticket and have court in Baton Rouge City Court. The case will be in Baton Rouge City Court, as opposed to District Court, only if the charge is a misdemeanor and the arresting agency was the Baton Rouge Police Department. The distinction is important because charges in Baton Rouge City Court are prosecuted according the Baton Rouge Municipal Code. Although the laws are similar to the state laws for misdemeanors, there are some differences regarding the elements of the offenses and sentencing provisions.
Mr. Barkemeyer is experienced and knowledgeable regarding the Municipal Code and how to successfully represent someone in Baton Rouge City Court. He can help with any charge you may have. See below for some of the misdemeanor charges in City Court.
