Even if a Louisiana resident has not attended law school, they may be familiar with the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Fourth Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights, a federal document that ensures that Americans are protected from various infractions by the government. The Fourth Amendment is of interest to many criminal defendants because it concerns actions that are undertaken by law enforcement officials during stops, searches and arrests.
There is no question that living in certain areas of the country is expensive. Metropolitan areas across the nation can be so pricey that not everyone can afford to find housing and other basic necessities in their budgets. Even here in Louisiana, some people are simply priced out of living in communities with higher costs of living.
