Get a Letter of Distinguishment?

Often a person applying for credit, a mortgage, or employment, will discover that a criminal defendant has the same name. When it becomes necessary to legally distinguish a criminal from another person, the Office of the District Attorney can assist by issuing a Letter of Distinguishment. Note: we can only issue Letters of Distinguishment for the criminal cases our office has prosecuted.

To obtain a Letter of Distinguishment, please contact the parish in which you were convicted.
