Roxanne Sutfield


A native of New Orleans, Roxanne Sutfield started her journey to help seek justice in 2004. Roxanne interned at A Fighting Chance, gathering information to seek adequate legal counsel to properly represent indigent offenders who faced the death penalty. Roxanne also interned at the Orleans Public Defenders Office, in which she gathered information from court dockets and prepared questions for the judge to identify the proper sentencing or release for inmates in custody. Upon completion of Roxanne’s internship, she graduated from Southern University of New Orleans with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Criminal Justice. Roxanne’s profound passion for justice led her to join the Juvenile Justice Project of Louisiana (JJPL) in 2013. JJPL merged with Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights “LCCR” in 2014, where Roxanne became the legal administrative assistant for the organization. Throughout the years of working directly with the Juvenile Public Defense attorneys, Roxanne transitioned to LCCR’s first paralegal.
