Legal assistance when facing white collar crime charges in VA

White collar crime in Virginia might not sound as serious as other crimes that frequently occur, but the fact is that they can lead to hefty fines and incarceration.

One of the most important factors when confronted with white collar crime charges is lodging a strong defense against the allegations.

What are the penalties in Virginia for breath test refusal?

When a vehicle is stopped by law enforcement in Virginia and an investigation into a possible incident of driving under the influence commences, many drivers are not aware of the law when it comes to breath test refusal.

It can lead to charges, a conviction, and punishment even in the event that they were not driving under the influence or if their blood alcohol content level fell below the amount required to facilitate an arrest. Knowing how the law views this issue can help to avoid it or formulate a defense in the event that it occurs.
