HOW VIRGINIA LAW APPLIES TO YOU!

Having handled Thousands of Criminal Cases in all the Courts of Northern Virginia, we understand how critical your job and/or your security clearance are to your livelihood and your family. If you are convicted of Murder or Manslaughter, you are facing not only significant jail time and a substantial fine; but you will also receive a Permanent Criminal Record with the FBI and Homeland Security and you could potentially lose your job, your security clearance, future employment opportunities and your future!

In order for the Commonwealth to prove the charge of First-Degree Murder, they must prove:

1. That you killed another person; and

2. That the killing was malicious; and

3. That the killing was willful, deliberate, and premeditated.

Manslaughter is either Voluntary or Involuntary. In order for the Commonwealth to prove Voluntary Manslaughter, they must prove:

1. That you killed another person; and

2. That the killing was the result of an intentional act; and

3. That the killing was committed while in the sudden heat of passion upon reasonable provocation or in mutual combat.

In order for the Commonwealth to prove Involuntary Manslaughter, they must prove:

1. That you killed another person; and

2. That the killing, although unintended, was either

  • a. The direct result of negligence; or
  • b. The unlawful performance of a lawful act, accompanied by carelessness;
  • c. The performance of an unlawful, but not felonious act, accompanied by carelessness; and

3. That the act was so gross, wanton and culpable as to show a callous disregard of human life.

If you are found guilty of Murder or Manslaughter, the punishment can be very severe. Murder is a FELONY that is punishable by up to life in prison. Manslaughter, whether Voluntary or Involuntary, is also a FELONY that is punishable by up to 10 YEARS IN JAIL!
