Laws and penalties for false representation as a military member

Virginia has a large number of military members and veterans as residents. With that comes certain rights and privileges. Unfortunately, there are times when a person might be accused of violating the law by claiming to be a member or former member of the military. It is against the law for a person to represent him or herself as a member of the military or to have the rights and privileges that accompany that. For those who have been confronted with allegations of having military status, it can lead to an arrest with its penalties for a conviction.

When might there be an ignition interlock device after a DUI?

Virginia drivers who are confronted with charges related to driving under the influence of alcohol will undoubtedly be aware that they will face certain penalties in the event they are convicted. However, one potential consequence that is often understated and not fully understood is the ignition interlock device. This is placed on the vehicle that the person operates as part of their restricted driving privileges to ensure that he or she has not been drinking before driving.

Man charged with weapons and drug offenses in Virginia

Drug charges can lead to significant penalties in Virginia if there is a conviction. These drug offenses can range from possession for the individual's own use to heftier charges linked to drug distribution. Often, charges related to drugs can expand into a multitude of other allegations with violence and more. Regardless of the circumstances, those who are arrested on charges for drugs need to be fully cognizant of the punishments they will face and do whatever they can to avoid them. Having legal assistance with crafting a defense is the first step.

The juvenile law system and driving privileges

For Virginia teens, driving is a new experience and rite of approaching adulthood. It is also a responsibility that requires the adherence of applicable laws to juveniles with accompanying penalties under the juvenile law system if they are violated. Juvenile delinquents can face numerous penalties such as license suspension or a curfew as to the hours they can drive. With alcohol, drug or firearm offenses, the driving privileges can be revoked.
