Have you been issued a traffic ticket for violation of a traffic law in Virginia and need a lawyer to defend you?

Below is a sample case of a traffic violation in Virginia as interpreted by a lawyer in our firm.

Traffic Lawyers In Fairfax Virginia

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) uses a system of points to evaluate drivers. When you are convicted of certain traffic violations, you receive a certain number of demerit points against your driving record.

Not all traffic violations receive demerit points, yet they will still be posted to your driving record. If you are a repeat offender, you can accumulate too many points and you may lose your license. This may also cause your vehicle insurance rates to rise.  If you have received a traffic ticket for violation of a traffic law in Virginia, contact our law firm today to speak with a lawyer about your traffic violation.  An attorney from our firm will do his best to help you.

These are some of the traffic violations, as per the Virginia Code;

Under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-300.  No person, except those expressly exempted in §§ 46.2-303 through 46.2-308, shall drive any motor vehicle on any highway in the Commonwealth until such person has applied for a driver’s license, as provided in this article, satisfactorily passed the examination required by § 46.2-325, and obtained a driver’s license, nor unless the license is valid.

Under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-862.

“A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who drives a motor vehicle on the highways in the Commonwealth (i) at a speed of twenty miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable maximum speed limit or (ii) in excess of eighty miles per hour regardless of the applicable maximum speed limit.”

Under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-874. The maximum speed shall be 25 miles per hour on highways in business or residence districts, except on interstate or other limited access highways with divided roadways or non-limited access highways having four or more lanes and all state primary highways.

Under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-1078.1.

(A). It is unlawful for any person to operate a moving motor vehicle on the highways in the Commonwealth while using any handheld personal communications device to….

  1. A violation of this section is a traffic infraction punishable, for a first offense, by a fine of $125 and, for a second or subsequent offense, by a fine of $250.”

Under Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-266.

It shall be unlawful for any person to drive or operate any motor vehicle, engine or train (i) while such person has a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or more by weight by volume or 0.08 grams or more per 210 liters of breath as indicated by a chemical test administered as provided in this article, (ii) while such person is under the influence of alcohol…

Wood v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The General District Court in Fairfax (Virginia) convicted defendant for the traffic offense of driving while under the influence (DUI), second offense. The State also charged defendant with refusing to submit to a breath or blood test. Defendant appealed. The circuit court tried the case de novo. An issue was whether defendant’s arrest was lawful under Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-81, permitting an officer to make a warrantless arrest for a crime committed in his presence.

If you are facing a traffic ticket in Virginia, contact a SRIS Law Group lawyer for help.  You can reach us at 888-437-7747.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Where a defendant’s arrest for driving under the influence is unlawful, as in violation of Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-81, because the misdemeanor offense is not committed in the arresting officer’s presence, when he is read his implied consent rights under the implied consent statute, his refusal does not constitute a violation of that statute, which requires that a defendant have been lawfully arrested to be subject to the statute’s mandate.
  • With respect to claims defendants are not driving, operating, or in actual physical control of vehicles when arrested for driving under the influence under Va. Code Ann. §§ 18.2-266, 19.2-81, 46.2-100, read together, where a defendant is not in the vehicle, the engine is not running, and the ignition key are removed, the defendant is not in actual physical control of the vehicle while standing in front of it on the highway, and thus the defendant is not operating his truck when the trooper approaches and arrests him.

Have you been charged with embezzlement in Virginia and need a lawyer to defend you?

Are you concerned about the consequences of being charged with embezzlement in Virginia?

As per Virginia Code § 18.2-111

“If any person wrongfully and fraudulently use, dispose of, conceal or embezzle any money, bill, note, check, order, draft, bond, receipt, bill of lading or any other personal property, tangible or intangible, which he shall have received for another or for his employer, principal or bailor, or by virtue of his office, trust, or employment, or which shall have been entrusted or delivered to him by another or by any court, corporation or company, he shall be guilty of embezzlement. Proof of embezzlement shall be sufficient to sustain the charge of larceny. Any person convicted hereunder shall be deemed guilty of larceny and may be indicted as for larceny and upon conviction shall be punished as provided in § 18.2-95 or § 18.2-96.”

For a lot of our clients, embezzlement can result in the loss of their job, their security clearance or even their immigration status.

North v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant contended that the retention of the funds did not constitute larceny. Throughout his trial in Fairfax, defendant defended a charge of grand larceny, the only crime he had been accused of committing. Defendant’s indictment notified him that he was being charged with grand larceny of property belonging to his employer; the Commonwealth did not propose any other theory for convicting defendant until it respondent to defendant’s motion to set aside the verdict. The appellate court found that the indictment did not provide defendant sufficient notice to adequately prepare to defend the accusations made against him. Amendments to the embezzlement statute changed the law so as to prohibit a conviction for larceny upon an indictment for larceny and proof of embezzlement. The general assembly intended the current version of Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-111 to preclude conviction under an indictment for larceny on proof of embezzlement. Therefore, proof of embezzlement did not support defendant’s conviction under the indictment alleging larceny.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • To prove embezzlement, the Commonwealth must prove defendant wrongfully appropriated to his use or benefit, with the intent to deprive the owner thereof, the property entrusted to him by virtue of his employment or office. Subsequent amendments to the embezzlement statute, Va. Code Ann. § 18.2-111, changed that law so as to prohibit a conviction for larceny upon an indictment for larceny and proof of embezzlement.

Commonwealth v. Jackson

Facts:

Defendant was charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants and with speeding 55 miles per hour in a 25 mile per hour zone. Both charges grew out of the same driving activity. Defendant prepaid the speeding charge and claimed that Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-862 converted his speeding charge to a reckless driving charge. Defendant alleged that he was convicted of for his first offense of speeding by virtue of this payment of the fines and cost and therefore he could not be prosecuted for the driving under the influence charge because Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-294.1 prevented dual convictions of driving under the influence and reckless driving.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 19.2-294 states that if a defendant is charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants and with reckless driving and he is convicted of one of those charges, then the court shall dismiss the remaining charge. The purpose of § 19.2-294 is to prevent the conviction of two different class one misdemeanors arising out of the same driving acts, when one of the misdemeanors is driving under the influence of intoxicants and the other is reckless driving. Where the evidence supports prosecution under either of two parallel statutes, the Commonwealth has the right to elect under which statute to proceed.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • One of the easiest methods of proving a vehicle’s speed is by pacing. This involves accurately determining the speed of one vehicle while proceeding at a constant distance from a second vehicle. If the distance between the two vehicles remains constant, the speed of the second vehicle must be the same as the known speed of the first vehicle. Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-942 clearly contemplates the use of pacing as a method of determining a vehicle’s speed by authorizing the admission of calibration tests to prove the accuracy of an arresting officer’s speedometer.
