Man faces multiple offenses for alleged DUI and resisting arrest

Throughout Virginia, law enforcement is constantly on the lookout for drivers who might be committing various infractions. One act that can cause a serious amount of damage to people and property is driving while intoxicated. If there is a conviction, a driver will have to deal with harsh penalties that can have life-changing effects. In addition to the drunk driving charges, other issues could lead to the allegations that multiple offenses were committed, making the aftermath worse for the driver.

What are the potential consequences for money laundering?

The most obvious and prominent crimes that are committed in Virginia often involve violence, drugs, sexual offenses and driving under the influence. Other kinds of crimes that don't have the same negative connotation but can be just as, if not more, serious involve white-collar crime charges. One kind of criminal act that falls into this category is money laundering.

Bullying accusations and how Virginia law views it

Bullying is garnering a great deal of media attention in Virginia and throughout the United States. Given the increasing technology and various ways in which communication can commence, the ways in which children can mistreat one another are increasing as well.

Before making accusations about bullying and trying to reference state law when dealing with it, it's important to understand how it is viewed and how to defend against accusations of it.

What leads to fraud and similar drug charges in Virginia?

When news reports arise of people in Virginia facing drug charges, most expect these to involve sale, procurement or manufacture of illegal drugs. However, charges can also be filed for obtaining prescription drugs using various kinds of fraud. The state laws are clear when it comes to the potentially serious consequences that can be levied for an arrest and conviction for using forgery, deception or fraud to acquire these drugs.

Understanding the juvenile law system and the crimes that lead to charges of destroying property and the penalties that can be meted out is important if a juvenile is charged.
