Legal assistance when charged with Virginia fraud

When a person in Virginia is facing white collar crime charges, there is often confusion as to what the law is and how they violated it. Fraud is common when it comes to the use of computers, credit cards, seeking governmental benefits, with financial issues and even such hot-button topics as immigration. Those who are accused of violating the law in this manner need to understand that the penalties can be as, if not more, severe than for other criminal activities, if there is a conviction. This is why it is imperative to have legal assistance when confronted with fraud charges.

What can lead to Virginia drug charges under the DCA?

Many Virginians might have a basic knowledge that there are certain drugs that are considered illegal under state law, but do not know what specific acts are prohibited under the Drug Control Act (DCA). These acts can lead to an arrest on drug charges with the possibility of a conviction on a Class 2 misdemeanor. This can result in up to six months in jail, a fine of up to $1,000 or both. It is imperative for those who might be charged or have already been charged to know what the law says and how to formulate a defense.

When can Virginian juvenile crimes result in adult charges?

When Virginian juveniles are arrested and face allegations of juvenile crimes in Virginia, it might come as a shock if they wind up facing adult charges. There is a significant difference between being charged and tried in juvenile court and adult court. Those who are confronted with this possibility need to understand how the decision is made as to whether there it will be in the adult law system or the juvenile law system.

Law enforcement in Virginia does not discriminate when it comes to arresting suspects for driving while intoxicated. Driving under the influence of alcohol can lead to long-term problems for anyone, if there is a conviction as it can affect their driving privileges, result in fines and even lead to jail time. Those who are young, rely on their ability to drive to make a living or are preparing for a potentially lucrative future can be especially harmed if they are convicted for driving while intoxicated and accompanying charges.
