Some incidents lead to cases in two court systems

Some incidents, such as car wrecks, might lead to more than one legal proceeding. These incidents might have a criminal case, but they might also have a civil one. This is perfectly legal since they serve different purposes. Understanding the differences between these can help you to determine how to answer each one. Because they are in different court systems, they do require different strategies.

Criminal defense strategies have to be personalized

Criminal defense matters must be carefully considered by the person who is facing the charges. When you are in this position, it is easy to become focused on the immediate consequences of each option. Take the time to consider the long-term impacts as well. Some cases, such as felonies, can affect you for the rest of your life. You don't want to have to deal with unnecessary impacts simply because you didn't take the time to think about what you are going to do.

Virginia prosecutor moves to dismiss misdemeanor marijuana cases

As recreational marijuana increasingly becomes legal in states across the country, local prosecutors in states where it's still illegal are making the decision not to prosecute cases involving a minimal amount of the drug. Here in Virginia, Norfolk Commonwealth's Attorney announced in January that his office would stop prosecuting misdemeanor cases.
