What is the St. Charles Parish court system like?
The 29th Judicial District has original jurisdiction over criminal and civil cases in St. Charles Parish. The District Court is located at the St. Charles Parish Courthouse on River Road in Hahnville, Louisiana.
Because the 29th Judicial District has jurisdiction over criminal and civil cases, the court will preside over your criminal case if you are charged with violating the law in the St. Charles Parish area. If you need to file a lawsuit, you will also likely have your case heard within the 29th Judicial District.
St. Charles Parish will soon have a juvenile drug court that is operational as well. The St. Charles government website indicates the drug court was approved by the Louisiana Supreme Court and will work to further the trend of having “proactive, problem-solving courts in addressing the needs of modern society.”
How Will My Case be Resolved in St. Charles Parish?
If you have received a traffic citation or have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony crime, you must enter a plea. This means you must admit guilt or plead not guilty and go to trial before a judge or jury. The prosecutor has a burden of proving your guilt if your case goes to trial, and an experienced New Orleans criminal defense lawyer can help you understand your options and defend yourself.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed, you can file a lawsuit within the appropriate St. Charles Parish court. You have to prove the defendant failed to fulfill a legal duty, resulting in harm to you or your family member. An attorney from the New Orleans criminal defense law firm of Bloom Legal can help you gather the necessary evidence to make a strong case. Many accident claims also settle outside of court. If this is in your best interest, Bloom Legal can represent you in negotiations with the insurance company.
