Understanding sex crimes with underage victims in VA

Those in Virginia confronted with sex crimes involving underage victims need to be aware of how the allegations will affect their lives. Sex offenses are treated very seriously, regardless of the victim. But, if the victim is underage, then the consequences can be all the more difficult to overcome.

Can juvenile crimes be expunged in Virginia and when?

When a juvenile in Virginia is charged with a crime, two of the biggest concerns are the penalties and long-term consequences. The juvenile law system is very different from the adult law system. Of course, it is preferable to have a juvenile acquitted of the charges. If, however, there is a finding of guilty it is possible that a juvenile will have his or her records expunged after a certain period has passed and conditions are met. Knowing the legal requirements for this is important when charged with a crime or after there has been a conviction.

What constitutes tax fraud?

People in Virginia and across the country might not equate a white collar crime with other types of crimes such as violent crimes or theft, but the fact is that they are treated as seriously by law enforcement once allegations are presented and an investigation commences. One particular crime that can lead to significant financial and personal penalties is tax fraud.

Man arrested on weapons and drug charges after search in home

When a person is arrested on drug charges in Virginia, they can face problems in the short and long term. Serious consequences accompany an arrest and conviction for drug offenses. This is why it is important for anyone confronted with these charges to plan a defense. These charges can range from simple possession to the intent to distribute. Often, other charges for weapons and violence accompany drug crimes and this can make the situation even worse.

What is intoxicated manslaughter, and possible penalties in VA?

People in Virginia who are charged after an accident in which they were believed to have been drinking and driving need to be aware that there are different levels of charges based on the outcome of the incident. One example that can lead to significant penalties is if there is a crash and a person is killed leading to the driver being charged with intoxicated manslaughter. Understanding how the law deals with these allegations is an important part of lodging a viable defense.
