Woman Posing As New Orleans Public Defender Worked On Dozens Of Cases

Quiet sign court session

A woman working with the Orleans Public Defenders has allegedly been falsely identifying herself as a licensed attorney in Louisiana.

The district attorney's office was made aware by the Louisiana Supreme Court that Ashley Crawford had been practicing law without a license, and seems to have worked on more than 100 cases in all 12 sections of Criminal District Court.

An investigation into the accusations is still underway.

Crawford could face a fine of up to $1,000 and two years behind bars, but no charges have been filed against Crawford at this time.
