    Judge tosses indictments on Anty506

    Judge tosses indictments

    By JAMES MINTON

    Advocate Baker - Zachary bureau
    Published: Aug 18, 2010 - Page: 4B



    CLINTON — A state district judge threw out indictments Tuesday against three men accused in the July 2009 shooting death of a Clinton man during an alleged drug deal.

    Twentieth Judicial District Judge George H. Ware Jr. ruled that the East Feliciana Parish grand jury that indicted the trio may have been led to believe that a person cannot claim self-defense in a shooting that occurs during a drug deal.

    I was wondering if the judge was smoking the same thing the defendants were trying to buy/sell, but then I went back to RS14:20 and re-read it.

    A(4)(b) is the part eliminating self-defense as a defense if a drug transaction is involved. However, it says "The provisions of this Paragraph shall not apply..." (emphasis added by me). What is considered a "paragraph" in the Revised Statutes? Is it all of A, or only A(4)? If it's just A(4), then the judge is right, the exception in A(4)(b) only applies to a break-and-enter type of scenario. I'm not familiar with the terms used in the law's structure.

    Wow. Good news for Anthony but the DA isn't finished with him yet. He still has a long way to go.

    I don't remember all the details of this but you are correct this isn't over yet. I just hope that Atthony has learned from this.

    It is kind of crazy, you drive 30-40-50 miles to buy dope. The dealer hits you and you kill him and walk.

    Who would you rather go free/live, the guy selling the drugs or the recreational user/buyer? Personally I'd much rather have someone who smokes some grass occasionally on the street because that means the dealer who's enabling the behavior is not, which in turn means the end user has no supply.

    Course we could always go down the path that what one does with his/her own body is no one else's business in the first place so long as it does not infringe or danger others.
