Evidence used and penalties in a drug paraphernalia case

State law says that certain pieces of evidence will be taken into consideration when there is an arrest for this drug crime. When a Virginian is placed under arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia, understanding the evidence that will be used as the case moves forward will be one of the most important parts of formulating a strong defense. It is also imperative to have a grasp on what the penalties will be in the unfortunate event that there is a conviction.

Man arrested on allegations of child sexual abuse

A person in Fairfax who is arrested on allegations of sex crimes will have a lot of issues both personal and professional that must be handled. Not only do sex offenses carry with them harsh punishments in the event of conviction, but there will also be damage to reputation that can cause vast problems in a person's life. These problems can last for an extensive period and make it difficult to function. If these allegations are related to child sexual abuse, the consequences can be even more substantial.

What is credit card fraud and what are the penalties?

It is exceedingly difficult for a Virginian to function in everyday life without credit of some sort. Whether that is credit cards from a bank, a store or some other entity, it is a borderline necessity. With that need will occasionally come a person or business making a mistake with trying to obtain and use credit. A byproduct of that could be an investigation and white collar crime charges for credit card theft. Understanding what constitutes this criminal act and its penalties is an important part of any case.

Woman faces multiple offenses for DUI, hit and run and assault

When a Virginian is facing drunk driving charges, it is not necessarily a matter of a police stop, investigation and arrest because the person was operating the vehicle erratically. This is how many DUI/DWI charges are perceived to come about. In other instances, however, there will be an accident, the attempt to flee, and even violent behavior to try and avoid being placed under arrest. Those who are arrested on any kind of drunk driving allegations needs to make certain to plan a viable defense immediately.
