There are a number of violent crimes in Virginia which, if one is convicted, almost certainly will result in jail or penitentiary time. If you are charged with certain violent crimes, including murder, robbery, abduction (kidnapping), rape and other forcible sex offenses, malicious wounding, and arson, the law presumes that you should not even be given bail. Often these kinds of charges are based on circumstantial scientific evidence, including DNA, ballistics, computer examinations, surveillance photographs, footprints and fingerprints.
The lawyers at The Magee Law Firm have been handling these kinds of cases, for over twenty-five years. They understand the issues of attacking forensic evidence based on sloppy police and laboratory work, and on invalid scientific assumptions. The Magee Law Firm, PLLC will fight to protect your Constitutional rights through the entire criminal process to secure the best possible result they can on your behalf.
