Driving under the influence (DUI/DWI) is one of the most common criminal offenses in the state of Virginia, and the penalties associated with a conviction escalate dramatically with any subsequent violations. A conviction could cost you your job or your security clearance, or prevent you from finding employment or housing or getting a security clearance in the future. You’ll have to provide proof of your financial responsibility and will be required to have vehicle insurance with more coverage than the usual state minimums, and you likely will pay more for that coverage because of the DUI/DWI conviction.

Petit larceny can be a lot of things. Shoplifting is one example of a theft offense that can be a form of petit larceny. The statutes spells out two ways a theft offense may be considered petit larceny.“From a person” means taking something that’s on another person’s body or in his or her physical possession or immediate control. Grabbing a wallet out of someone’s hand or snatching a purse from someone’s shoulder would be theft from a person.“Not from a person” is a more indirect type of theft. If the person’s wallet is inside a locker at a gym and you take it while the person is working out or taking a shower, the wallet isn’t in his or her physical possession or immediate control. That would be a type of theft not from a person. Learn more about Petit Larceny and its associated charges in Prince William County, VA.
Possession of Marijuana
Any drug arrest must be taken very seriously. Even a first-offense misdemeanor charge for possession of a small amount of marijuana could land you in jail, cost you your job, or severely limit your future prospects.
But the law also recognizes that drug crimes often go hand-in-hand with addictions, and opportunities exist in some cases to undergo substance abuse screening and treatment in lieu of stricter penalties. We can help you determine if the circumstances of your case might qualify you for treatment and probation or a more lenient sentence, or if defenses exist to have your charge dismissed altogether.
