What if someone under 21 faces drunk driving charges in Virginia?

Driving under the influence of alcohol is a widespread problem in Manassas and throughout Virginia. Since it is such a dangerous behavior that can result in injuries and death, law enforcement officers and legislators are constantly trying to lower the number of those driving drunk. However, simply because a person is stopped on suspicion of drunk driving does not automatically mean they are guilty.

Can I face criminal charges in Virginia for drone use?

Technological advancements provide various diversions, hobbies and toys to Virginians and people across the country. This can be enjoyable and useful in a personal and professional context. However, legislators are putting laws in place to regulate how these items - especially drones and other unmanned aircraft systems - are dealt with if there is a violation. Those arrested and charged with violations of this law should remember that the charges can be serious.

When a Manassas resident is confronted with drunk driving charges, other factors can make the potential penalties much worse. For example, if there is an accident, if the person refuses to submit to a breath test, if there is an attempt to elude law enforcement and more can multiply the problems the person will face. Other issues can also arise such as previous driving-related convictions and a driver's license suspension. Regardless of the circumstances of the case, however, everyone must have a viable defense against the allegations. Legal help is a must for that defense.
