'Most wanted man in Lafayette Parish' extradited from Philadelphia

A man once referred to as "the most wanted man in Lafayette Parish" was returned to Lafayette Sunday after spending three weeks hiding from authorities. He will now face significant criminal charges.

The man is wanted in connection with the June 2011 death of a 29-year-old Lafayette woman. Authorities believe the man was intoxicated when he struck the woman's vehicle and then fled the scene. The woman died as a result of the collision.

The man was due to start trial March 25, but he told his representative he was leaving the courthouse to feed his parking meter and never returned. He was missing for three weeks.

Authorities later located him in Philadelphia and took him into custody on April 16. He has been in custody since then as officials from both locations worked out extradition details.

The man will now stand trial on charges of burglary, felon in possession of a firearm and vehicular homicide.

Given that we handle criminal defense matters in our office, we know that a great many people feel overwhelming fear and anxiety when they are forced to fight for their freedom. However, running from criminal charges is no way to stand up to them. In fact, many times, it only makes matters worse.

A far better way to face criminal accusations is to work closely with your legal representative and craft a defense you're comfortable with and confident in.

As we said, the criminal defense profession understands that this is a scary time, but if you're able to keep a calm head, that will go a long way toward helping you.
