  • If there is a domestic charge on you and its a felony can you get it dropped in the state of Louisiana ?,

    I put a domestic charge on my boyfriend an the cops have a recording of me speaking and went to DA and they said I would have to speak to the police is there anyway that the charge can be dropped its also listed as a felony

    Michael’s Answer

    This is a very serious situation with potentially life time consequences. Consult an attorney with experience in domestic violences charges who is up to date on expungement laws. The wrong lawyer is as bad as no lawyer. You will have access to the public defender.

    This sounds like a child in need of care case with the juvenile court having jurisdiction. Your rights are not the same as before in all likelihood. You should consult an attorney who has a recent history of working with the dcfs to get a game plan for you.
