    Tuesday Aug 16 | via The Advocate 

    Reports of looting cropping up in flooded areas after people evacuated for drier land prompted the call for a curfew in East Baton Rouge Parish by Sheriff Sid Gautreaux. Gautreaux said he got an executive order from the Gov. John Bel Edwards to impose the curfew because Mayor President Kip Holden did not exercise his authority sooner, like other parish and municipal leadership had already done in Livingston, Central and Tangipahoa over the past few days.

Have any of you had the chance to work with Attorney Charles D Christmas in Amite , La
I'm interested in retaining Mr Christmas as my lawyer for my DUI case but I can't seem to find any information on him as to any of his accomplishments, cases won, client reviews, etc. I'm curious to know his track record so I'm hoping maybe some of you have worked with him or know something about him. If so, I'd love to know more about it. Thank you
These are fair questions to ask counsel. May I suggest you pose your questions directly to him?

I want to be able to argue my case but I'm not sure how. I have evidence that my SFSTs were done incorrectly and also a portion of the police report that makes my stop confusing. I was stopped for speeding by one officer but the report claims that the second officer(arresting officer) was the one who caught me on radar. I find that difficult to understand seeing as how he was down the road, around the curve, and through the woods.
