Massage chain employees accused of sexual abuse

Nowadays, more and more women are coming forward with allegations of sexual assault and other sexual crimes. Sex crimes carry serious penalties in Virginia, where many people convicted of sex crimes end up in prison for many years. One of the most recent cases involve employees at a popular massage therapy chain with locations all over Virginia.

How does the juvenile court system work?

When a minor is charged with a crime, they will likely go through a different court process from what an adult would for the same crime. According to the law, the juvenile court system generally covers children between the ages of 7 and 18. If a minor under the age of 7 commits a crime, they typically cannot be tried in any court, but their parents may be liable. Being under 18 is not a guarantee that one will be tried in juvenile court. In some cases, particularly those involving homicide, rape, and other severe crimes, teenagers may be tried as adults.

License suspension not automatic with marijuana charge

In the past, people that were convicted of possession of marijuana in the commonwealth of Virginia would automatically lose their driver's license for six months as part of their sentence. Now, Virginia residents who are facing drug possession charges for marijuana may be able to keep their license.

Woman facing charges after posting sexual photos

Over the past decade, the popularity of social media has resulted in a significant increase of internet-related crimes. Common crimes typically involve people posting inappropriate photos and videos online and internet solicitation. A Virginia Beach woman is now facing multiple misdemeanor charges after posting sexually explicit photos of another woman without her consent.
