Defense matters in Virginia property crime cases

Last week, we discussed a case of a juvenile that was arrested for breaking into vehicles. While that case has some of readers wondering about juvenile cases, the fact is that many adults might be facing property crime charges. For those men and women, dealing with the criminal justice system can be difficult. In Virginia, people who are being charged with property crimes, such as arson, theft, shoplifting, burglary, larceny, vandalism and motor vehicle theft should remember a couple of basic points.

One point they should remember is that anyone charged with a crime has the right to present a defense against the charges. In order to do that, the person who is facing the charges might need to seek the assistance of someone who is knowledgeable of the laws. We can help anyone who is facing property crimes.

Another important point to remember is that your right to remain silent is one that you should invoke. Once we are your legal counsel, all communication about your charges and your case will go through us. We can help to ensure that the only information that is given is information that will benefit your case.

Whether you are an adult or a juvenile, your right to defend yourself remains the same. A vital part of defending yourself is learning about the evidence against you and knowing how to make a plan of action based on that. We can help you to determine the best way to present your case for any property crime that you are facing. Call us as early in your case as possible so we can work with you to get your case together.
