Even a misdemeanor can carry some sort of jail time, and felony offenses, if you are convicted, have jail time often mandatory as a penalty. You can face a lot of different issues when you are convicted of criminal charges that extend beyond jail time, such as fines and suspensions on your license or losing the privilege of driving. Our Virginia criminal defense lawyers want to help you if you have been charged. Here are some examples of cases we handle:

        • Possession of Drugs— If you’ve been charged with possession of drugs, you either had marijuana, methamphetamines, Molly or ecstasy, psychedelics such as LSD or mushrooms, heroin, crack or a combination of controlled substances or narcotics
        • Other Drug Charges— Some other types of drug charges that we handle can include distribution of drugs, intend to sell, having drugs in a school zone and so on

        • Sex Crimes— Sex crimes can include statutory rape, sexual assault, public indecency, prostitution, sex crimes against children, and so on
        • Property Criminal Charges— These include crimes against someone’s property such as arson, vandalism, theft, larceny etc.
        • White Collar— These charges can include fraud, embezzlement, credit card theft, identity theft, and so on
        • Weapons— Possession of an illegal firearm, and it can exacerbate other charges if you also had an illegal firearm

        Obstacles Virginia Criminal Defense Lawyers Face

        You have to know that just because you’ve been charged with a crime and there’s an investigation ongoing against you doesn’t automatically mean that you are going to be convicted. A lot of evidence that police collect against you can be kept out of trial and deemed inadmissible. If they don’t have evidence during trial, they cannot prove to the jury that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and you can have your case dismissed.

        There are several ways we can fight a criminal charge. Here is a breakdown of those options:

        First, if we can cast doubt on why you were arrested or stopped to begin with, then we can question the entire case. If you are not properly arrested or detained then the charges might be dropped. The police need a reason to suspect you or have probable cause to arrest you and charge you with a crime. If that doesn’t exist, then the case could go in our favor.

        If there was a search made without probable cause for a warrant, then whatever findings that they make during that search would not be grounds to convict you with a crime. You have a right to have a search made with probable cause and if that right is violated, we will fight against that.

        If there was an issue with your search warrant, such as the probable cause was insufficient, then we will fight the charges based on that. The police need to have sufficient reason to have the warrant authorized. They cannot search you outside of that authorized warrant.

        When you get arrested, you should be read your Miranda rights. If the arresting officers neglected to read you your Miranda rights, then we will fight the charges. It is your right to have your Miranda rights read to you and if that right is violated, then the case may go in our favor.

        We also take a good look at the eyewitnesses and the credibility of those witnesses. If there is a question whether or not these witnesses are credible, then we will fight this and make their testimony inadmissible in trial.

        The evidence that the prosecution uses against you has to be quality evidence. If they are bringing in recordings where you can’t understand what anyone is saying or photographs where you can’t see because it’s such bad quality, then that should not belong in trial against you.

        We can question the evidence used against you. When there is an issue with a chain of custody of the evidence, the evidence could’ve been tainted. If this is biological evidence and it’s been passed around to who knows where, then this evidence should not be used in court.

        Our Virginia criminal defense lawyers also look into the devices that the officers used, such as for a DUI charge or a drug charge, to see if there are any issues with that. If their breathalyzer was giving inconsistent results and that is how you were arrested for a DUI, then we can question that.

        We will explore every avenue to protect your rights and make sure that the evidence being used in court is legitimate. We also will not allow the police to use any evidence that they found against you if that was found using evidence that had been tainted. This is a little bit more complicated of an issue but our lawyers are prepared for any and all obstacles in our way to get justice for you. Call us right away.

        Steps to Take After an Arrest

        The very first thing that we urge you to do after you have been arrested is to reach out to our Virginia criminal defense lawyers. Do not give any statements or confessions without speaking to us first. We don’t want you talking with the police officers about the charges or any prosecutors before you reach out to us and get our consultation. This is very important in the very early stages of your criminal charges, and the sooner you talk to us the better.

        If you’ve been released after you get arrested, we urge you not to speak to anyone but the lawyers who are representing you regarding your charges and your case. Don’t go onto social media, don’t go telling everyone you know that you just got arrested and charged with a crime. We don’t want you to have this information spreading far and wide right now. Don’t talk to any victims if there were any. And don’t flee. Prudently and promptly get in touch with our Virginia criminal defense lawyers.
