Adult Crimes

The Office of the District Attorney prosecutes criminal cases involving adult defendants (17 years of age or older) charged with violations of state criminal laws. Most of the state laws prosecuted are located in Title 14 and Title 40 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes.

Criminal charges are presented to the this office by the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office, Louisiana State Police, Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries, and by federal agencies such as the FBI, DEA and ATF.

Criminal charges are “screened” or “reviewed” by the District Attorney or one of the Assistant District Attorneys to determine if formal charges should be filed with the Court, or if a Grand Jury is required to proceed further.

Flow charts are attached here to show the process a charge goes through before it is completed.
