Dozens of DUI cases dropped in Virginia Beach, reasons unknown

Unless you have relatives or know someone in another part of Virginia, you probably don't pay much attention to the happenings in other areas of the state. But after our Leesburg readers hear about what is going on far to our south in Virginia Beach, this attitude could soon change, especially considering the fact that similar events could occur anywhere in the state.

Would Virginians benefit more from broader DUI expungement laws?

As you all know, each state in our country is allowed to draft and enforce its own laws. While every state may have the same basic laws, such as charges for drinking and driving, each state is allowed to handle violations of the law how its courts see fit. This means that while laws might be similar, trial outcomes will not always be the same from state to state.

Could your political beliefs predict your chances of divorce?

Though the more cynical among us may believe otherwise, nothing can predict whether a marriage will last “’til death do us part” or end in divorce someday. Of course, it is natural to be curious about whether certain couples are less likely to stay together than others, because of their backgrounds, jobs, or other reasons.

Out-of-state case shows how warrantless searches violate rights

If you're a regular visitor to our blog, then you may have come across our post last month concerning the issue of warrantless searches. As we explained in the post, our laws try to protect the rights of Virginia residents by making it illegal for police to enter a person's property, search a person's body or draw blood without first presenting a valid warrant. Any violation of this law can spell trouble for an investigation, particularly the evidence being used to convict a person of a crime.

Arrested Virginia man denies committing double bigamy

It has been nearly two months since we discussed bigamy, or the act of being married to more than one person at the same time. Bigamy is against the law in Virginia; from a family law perspective, a marriage is void if one of the “spouses” was already married to a third person at the time of the wedding.

Could lowering the drinking age be a good thing for Virginians?

Most of today's readers know that the legal national drinking age is 21. But do you know why? If you don't, that's okay. Few know that the age of 21 was set on July 17, 1984 when then President Ronald Reagan signed the National Minimum Drinking Age Act. The act allowed the federal government to withhold funding for highways from any state that established a drinking age less than 21 years old. In the last 31 years, no state has dared to oppose it.
