You are under arrest and facing criminal charges. The criminal activity is in the past, so you only need to worry about your defense, right?
A criminal charge can have lasting effects on the lives of those with such charges on their records. If you or a loved one receives an acquittal or dismissal of such charges, it may be possible to receive an expungement to remove them from the record.
Getting stopped for a DUI can be a frightening experience for many. It can be hard to know which decisions to make and what actions could damage your case further down the line.
Each state has its own definition of reckless driving and sets forth corresponding penalties. Virginia law provides a particularly strict threshhold for this crime and includes fairly harsh penalties.
One penalty that you face immediately after being charged with a DUI in Virginia is the suspension of your license. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation, you may need to wait a certain length of time before you are eligible to have it reinstated.
