Son of former governor arrested on DWI charges

In Virginia, the laws regarding drunk driving charges apply to everyone, whether it's a person who is from a prominent family or a regular workaday person. The penalties for driving while intoxicated can be severe and lead to long-term problems. Regardless of the circumstances, it's important that a driver who is confronted with these charges knows how key a competent defense can be in combating these legal issues.

What constitutes identity fraud in Virginia?

As the world becomes more reliant on information passing through mobile devices and grows more difficult to protect, there is an increasing concern about identity theft. For people in Virginia, it's important to understand the laws of the state for those who are facing charges for an alleged crime related to this. White collar crime charges like identity theft are frequently considered less serious than violent criminal acts, but they're taken very seriously and the penalties are often as, if not more, severe than other crimes.

Hot Lanes Violations in Virginia Costing Thousands

Northern Virginia's new HOT Lanes (High-Occupancy Toll), also called Express Lanes are costing some drivers thousands of dollars in fees. Anyone may use the lanes twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week but drivers with at least two passengers won't have to pay tolls for using the lanes. The new lanes require a traditional E-ZPass or the recently released E-ZPass Flex transponders, which allow drivers to switch between HOV and toll-paying modes. A HOT Lanes violation can cost an unsuspecting driver in Virginia thousands of dollars.

One such crime is embezzlement. Those who are subject to an investigation for this act need to understand how to proceed with a defense.
