Virginia law is tough on all types of crime, and law enforcement officers aggressively pursue suspects. According to the Virginia Department of Police Crime Reports, police arrest around 187,400 people every year for offenses ranging from minor misdemeanors to serious felonies. You could face harsh penalties, including fines, jail time, and probation if convicted. Plus, certain criminal records will follow you for years or the rest of your life, leading to collateral consequences you did not expect.
As such, the best way to avoid these penalties is to mount a solid defense and develop effective strategies for fighting the charges.
