Three men face drug charges after traffic stop in Virginia

Traffic stops, no matter how simple the offense, could lead to additional charges. If authorities suspect that something else might be going on with a driver or the vehicle occupants, officers will conduct further investigation to establish probable cause to collect evidence. However, if these steps do not fall within normal protocols, this could tarnish the reliability of the collected evidence. This is true even if authorities uncover drugs in the vehicle, resulting drug charges.

The differences between the juvenile and adult criminal systems

When youth in Virginia and elsewhere find themselves in trouble, they many think that they will get off easily. Although juvenile offenders face less harsh penalties when compared to their adult counterparts, this does not keep the minor entirely free from facing serious consequences. Even though a juvenile may enter the legal system through juvenile court, it is possible for a juvenile to be charged as an adult and continue through the adult system.

Sobriety checkpoint in Fairfax County could result in DUI charge

Fairfax county patrol are always on the lookout for law-breakers and illegal behavior. However, once in a while, the police makes their intentions known to those in the community. One of those such times where local authorities announce their plans for a sobriety checkpoint in Fairfax County, one of which occurred over the past weekend. A sobriety checkpoint is different from a regular traffic stop and is subject to its own rules and regulations to ensure lawful search and seizure.

Helping you navigate the juvenile defense process

When we hear about criminal offenders, we don't think that could be us and we certainly do not think it could be our own sons or daughters. However, numerous juveniles in Virginia and other states across the nation are accused of minor and major offenses every year. This not only requires the juvenile's parent or guardian to consider what to do regarding a defense, but it also means that a juvenile's life and future could be greatly impacted by these allegations.
