Man facing drug and weapons charges following home search

A 47-year-old Virginia man was taken into custody on March 19 after authorities executed a search warrant at his Waynesboro residence for narcotics. While searching for drugs, the authorities also reportedly seized several weapons, two of which were thought to be stolen.

The various punishments for possessing controlled substances

If a person is convicted of a drug possession charge in Virginia, he or she could be subject to several different penalties. The penalties assessed will depend on the type and quantity of drug in question. The defendant's personal history can also play a role in determining the penalties for such a crime.

Large group in Virginia face drug charges

A large group of people in Virginia were arrested in early March 2018 from multiple jurisdictions, charged with an array of drug crimes. Police say that a number of people they are looking for continue to be wanted in connection with the drug investigation. The New River Regional Drug Task Force indicted 57 people before a grand jury on February 27 at the Montgomery County Circuit Court. These 57 people were charged in 93 different indictments, all of them related to drug offenses.

Drunk driving bill fails to pass in Virginia

A bill allowing Virginia residents to drive while under the influence on their own property was killed in the state House. The bill had originally failed to get out of committee in the Senate, but it was reconsidered in February. After passing through committee, it was approved 37-3. However, while in the House Courts of Justice subcommittee, it encountered resistance from a variety of traffic safety advocates.

Talk show host changes his tune about crash

Virginia fans of outspoken talk show host Steve Wilkos may be surprised to learn he is changing his story about a recent car crash. In January, Wilkos suspended production of his popular television show after being injured in a single-vehicle accident in Connecticut. At the time, Wilkos said he had been driving without his prescription eyeglasses and lost control while attempting to reach for them. New details have resulted in a change to the story as the 53-year-old host now admits to drinking and driving on the day of the incident.
