Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving All Areas of Louisiana


Previously posted on Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Jordan Jefferson and Josh Johns, both LSU football players, were arrested and suspended from the team on August 26th for their alleged connection in a bar fight on August 19th. Some people are trying to play down the arrest, saying that fights occur every weekend at LSU bars. However, Jefferson and Johns should be concerned because they are facing a serious charge. They were arrested for second degree battery which is a felony and carries a sentence of 0-5 years in prison.

I think several months from now, after the public’s interest wanes, the case will be set for trial. By that time the victims will have been compensated a sweet sum of money for their alleged injuries, which will numb their pain of agreeing to allow the defendants to plead guilty to a misdemeanor of simple battery or even an outright dismissal. Therefore, the victims will have to be satisfied with nursing their wounds with a few stacks of paper. Hopefully, this incident will not leave a lasting footprint, I mean imprint, on any of the victims’ memories.
