  1. Boren and Conner – recall those two from the Angola Five trial. Mr. Desai’s choice of counsel is intriguing.

  2. Jim Boren is a real lawyer. A deal is probably in the works. I wonder if the Super 8 franchise is aware of this situation?

  3. Doug Freese is the A league prosecutor for Connick’s office and is not assigned to Ansardi’s division. But, I am surprised that this matter has been continued so many times. Most judges in 24th do not allow that in criminal cases.

Back some time ago there was a love affair with such in drug cases, as the p/w intent to distribute even with enhancements for multiples wasn’t exciting enough – and there’s always the added flavor of dividing up the loot among the enforcers, 18:1356, I tend to recall.

    1. Empire:

      Those cites must not have been available on Google at the time.

      Classic example of “you get what you pay for.”

      1. Those are the Louisiana RICO statutes, which (not surprisingly) are restricted to criminal actions, no doubt as some inhabitants of Huey’s Monument in Red Stick figured out enterprising attorneys might sue various kleptocrat gangs around and about the state…
