Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Areas of Louisiana


This week, a Baton Rouge man was arrested for the second-degree murder of his girlfriend who died from a heroin overdose. The issues of whether or not the State can prove the defendant was involved and whether he had specific intent to kill remain to be determined.

Heroin arrests and deaths relating to overdose are on the rise in Louisiana. The Louisiana laws relating to heroin charges are very tough. For instance, a defendant convicted of possession of heroin shall be imprisoned at hard labor for not less than four years nor more than ten years and may, in addition, be required to pay a fine of not more than five thousand dollars.

If you or someone you know needs a Baton Rouge heroin defense lawyer, call Carl Barkemeyer at (225) 964-6720.
