Virginia residents may have heard the common proverb, “To err is human,” often attributed to the late, great English poet Alexander Pope. The line is true. Humans, by our very nature, are not perfect. We make mistakes, we may not make the wisest decisions or use good judgement before doing something. Unfortunately, this can lead to illegal behavior, which may put you in a very bad situation.
Sometimes these bad decisions can be blamed on hanging out with the wrong people, or being at the wrong place at the wrong time, or finding yourself in a bad situation and acting out of impulse instead of thinking before acting. Whatever the case may be, if you find yourself facing charges, it is important to defend yourself as best you can.
