The police are required to follow procedures, state law and constitutional requirements when investigating and making arrests. In order to stop a vehicle the police must have reasonable, articulable suspicion that a crime is afoot or that some motor vehicle law has been violated. The legal standard is less demanding than the standard for probable cause for arrest. Nevertheless, the police cannot stop a motor vehicle for any reason. A competent Virginia criminal defense attorney can assess your specific situation to determine the validity of the stop and all subsequent contact with the police.

In court proceedings, motions and requests must be filed according to the rules of court or they may be deemed waived. At trial, timely objections must be made in order to preserve the record for appeal, if an appeal is desired. Witnesses may need to be subpoenaed and court rules need to be followed.

Only a Virginia attorney may provide legal advice regarding criminal and traffic charges brought in the Commonwealth of Virginia. A competent Virginia criminal defense attorney will be able to assess your situation and determine whether any factual, legal or constitutional defenses apply.

For legal advise regarding your fact specific situation call the defense attorney above to schedule a confidential office appointment.
