  • Process of expunging reckless driving from permanent record?

    Jamilah’s Answer

    Virginia only allows for expungement of criminal charges that were dismissed, nolle prossed (withdrawn), or if a person was found not guilty. There is also an exception to allow an expungement if another person committed a crime in your name. Other than that, any conviction will remain on your record no matter how old or minor.

  • Do they need a witness/physical evidence to prosecute?

    Jamilah’s Answer

    A confession of any type helps no criminal defendant but is oftentimes excellent evidence for the police to obtain a conviction, especially when they are lacking in other forms of evidence. Do not make any more statements to law enforcement and consult with qualified local trial counsel now.

    Jamilah’s Answer

    You need to consult with and hire local counsel. There are many defenses to this charge but an attorney who can look at the individual facts of your case in private is in the best position to help you. If you cannot hire an attorney be sure to apply with the court clerk for court-appointed counsel. Good luck.

    Jamilah’s Answer

    A lot of this will depend on the underlying charge and why he was on probation in the first place. You need to sit down with a lawyer in confidence and go over his Major Violation Report or Probation Violation Capias. An attorney who practices in Staunton courts is in the best place to help you. Good luck.
