When a person in Virginia is placed under arrest, they may feel confused, embarrassed or intimidated. They may be afraid of what will unfold in their future. Will the charges against them be dropped? Will they have to face a judge and jury in a trial? And what will happen to them if they are found guilty?
These are legitimate concerns that anyone accused of a crime may have. Depending on the severity of the charges against them, a person could face incarceration, heavy fines and even a criminal record. All of these things could change the trajectory of a person's life forever. And even if a person is ultimately acquitted, they may find that simply having been charged with a crime has negatively affected their personal and professional reputation.
