A friend of mine is in some trouble for Grand larceny. There’s two other charges. One being entering in the intent of A&B and two destruction of property less than $1000 which is only a fine. He’s tried calling his lawyer multiple times in the past few weeks and his lawyer hasn’t reached back out to him. He has court on the 28th in which they will pull and see if they have evidence against him. He wants the best advice on what can help him, and how he can help the situation of getting a lesser sentence. They said if they do have proof he could get Anywhere from two years to life in prison. Although I’ve gotten other advice dating if they can’t find proof he’ll only be on probation. I’m just trying to help a friend out with the best advice. How can he help himself and how do we get his lawyer to contact him?
Dear Sir or Madam, Your friend should hire a new attorney if unhappy with the one hired originally. A substitution of counsel can be filed. There is a very good chance of getting a continuance if first time up. Good luck. Attorney Sheryl Shane, The Virginia Criminal Attorney.
If the outcome of the case is important to your friend then your friend would be wise to retain the services of an experienced, respected and successful Virginia Criminal Defense Attorney who will give his case the attention it deserves.
