Woman charged with felony drunk driving in Virginia

Drivers in Virginia are expected to adhere to all traffic rules and laws, including being sober when behind the wheel. When a person is stopped by law enforcement on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and an investigation commences with an eventual arrest, those who are dealing with these drunk driving charges need to know how to plan a defense. This is true regardless of the circumstances whether it is a felony drunk driving charge or lesser charges.

Understanding allegations of harassment and its penalties

Teens in Virginia might not understand the difference between what they believe to be a harmless series of pranks and what ventures into the illegal and turns into harassment. However, when that line is crossed it can lead to serious long-term consequences if there is a conviction on the allegations. It is with this in mind that teens who might be facing accusations of harassment need to make certain to craft a strong defense to avoid the harshest penalties.

What is considered drug paraphernalia in Virginia?

People in Virginia might not know that the simple act of possession of drug paraphernalia can lead to charges just as easily as possessing the drugs themselves. Even if a person was not using drugs or involved in its sale or manufacture, there can be charges linked to drug paraphernalia. Drug paraphernalia consists of materials, products and equipment that are used for the growth, manufacture, conversion, production, testing, analysis and numerous other uses related to drugs. Those who are charged with possessing drug paraphernalia must be aware of what is included in this law.
