Fairfax/Manassas Criminal & Personal Injury Blog

Children and teenagers facing criminal charges have a lot at stake. With their whole futures ahead of them, a juvenile criminal offense can have a major impact on their lives for years to come. A 17-year-old boy was charged with attempted capital murder of a police officer after an altercation in Virginia Beach.

The incident occurred when officers were called to respond to a domestic violence situation. When officers arrived at the home, the 17-year-old boy apparently refused to cooperate. As the officers attempted to detain him, the boy reportedly stabbed one of the officers with a knife. The boy was arrested on-site. The injured officer was recently released from the hospital and is continuing his recovery at home.

Officers say that the 17-year-old was also involved in a crime that occurred earlier that day. In that incident, an officer was apparently flagged down by someone who claimed to have been assaulted and robbed by someone with a gun. Officers tracked down the suspect, another teenage boy, and placed him into custody. It was not until the second incident that officers connected the 17-year-old to the first crime. Both teens are now in custody and being held without bond.

If you or a loved one under the age of 18 is facing criminal charges, it may be beneficial to seek assistance from a criminal defense attorney. An attorney can evaluate your case and determine your legal options. In cases involving violent crime, prosecutors may attempt to charge a minor as an adult, which could result in much more serious penalties. Your attorney can do their best to make sure that doesn't happen and work to get you the least severe consequences possible.
