Here's why you should work with a criminal defense attorney

When you're accused of a crime, it's in your best interests to take steps to defend yourself. If you don't, you could face unfair treatment, a bias in court or just make mistakes that hurt your case.

Doctor faces 20 years in prison for opioid prescriptions

A Virginia doctor faces up to 20 years in a federal prison for prescribing powerful medications including Xanax, oxycodone and Adderall to individuals who had no medical need to take the drugs. The 49-year-old Fairfax resident pleaded guilty on March 4 to six counts of illegally distributing controlled substances after entering into a negotiated plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Man sentenced in Virginia drug operation

An overview of the legal process

If a police officer believes that a Virginia resident has committed a crime, that officer may take that person into custody. After taking a person into custody, a police report will be sent to the prosecutor. The police report will contain a variety of details such as why and where a defendant was taken into custody. At this point, the prosecutor can elect to press charges, send the matter to a grand jury or decline to pursue the matter further.
