Virginia Criminal defense: DUI, Felony Child Neglect charges

The complexities that typically come along with facing criminal charges are intimidating and confusing. Those accused may wonder whether they will make the best legal choices when preparing to face the formal accusations in court. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help navigate the system in pursuit of a favorable result.

One woman in Virginia is likely considering her legal options after recently being charged. Reports stated that the woman had allegedly left her 16-month-old child in a hotel room while she went out. During her outing, she was reportedly taken into custody for driving under the influence. The arrest took place at approximately 6 a.m.

At around 1:30 p.m., the woman's mother informed hotel staff that the child was in the hotel room. The child had reportedly been alone except for a dog that was also in the room. A staff member stated that the child had soiled himself and was crying. As a result of this purported situation, the woman is currently facing charges for DUI and felony child neglect.

There are a number of important issues the accused woman must confront, including the possibility of losing custody of her child. Luckily, she will have options to consider when it comes to approaching her case in an effective manner. Gathering information on criminal defense strategies may prove beneficial to her. This is best accomplished by consulting with an experienced Virginia defense attorney who could help her assess her options and prepare for the coming court proceedings.
