In light of the continuing COVID-19 outbreak, Judge J. Christopher Peters has issued an order continuing all scheduled court matters until April 30, 2020. This means there will be no court hearings during the month of April unless it is an emergency.
The Office of the District Attorney will remain open during this time. However, we ask that you contact us by phone, email, or fax. We will post additional notices as they become available to us.
In the meantime, we ask you again to do the following:
1- Stay calm, and do not panic.
2-Take reasonable precautions to protect yourself and your family.
3-Continue to pray earnestly for the Lord Jesus to protect those on the front lines working to keep us all safe. The doctors, nurses, rad techs, lab techs, and all other medical personnel and support workers are in close contact with this virus, and they need our support and prayers to sustain them.
4-Pray for the other personnel who are on the front lines also. Law enforcement, truck drivers making deliveries, and all other workers at stores who are open to provide us with essential items to carry on life as best we can.
5-Pray for our country and our President and the team working to guide us through this time. Pray for wisdom for them to make the right decisions.
Please stay safe.
J. Reed Walters
LaSalle Parish District Attorney
