Aggressive Virginia Criminal Defense Attorneys Representing Clients Accused of Violating Virginia Law
When you are charged with a crime, the prosecution begins expending immense resources to build a case against you. Whether you simply made a mistake or have been wrongly accused, the criminal justice process can be incredibly stressful and taxing. You will be required to make multiple court appearances, law enforcement officials may come to your home or work to question you or conduct searches, and you will have a potentially substantial amount of time hanging over your head. In addition, criminal prosecutions are burdensome and traumatic for your loved ones when your freedom and ability to provide appear to now be in someone else's hands.

The Criminal Case Process
After you are arrested you will be taken to the courthouse before the magistrate. The magistrate will read the formal charges to you, and the magistrate will also determine your bond status. You may be held without bond, held on a secured bond, released on your own recognizance or released with supervision conditions. If the magistrate decides to hold you, you will have an arraignment hearing in a few days before a judge. The judge at that time will possibly review your bond status or state that your attorney can set up a bond hearing.
If you are charged with a misdemeanor, your case will be concluded in either General District Court or Juvenile and Domestic Relations court. The Judge will hear the evidence presented by the prosecution and the defense and will render a verdict.
Possible sentences include:
Jail or prison time, depending upon the severity of the offense
Split sentence of both jail/prison time and supervised release
Assault & Battery
Brandishing a Firearm
