Chesterfield County Destruction of Property DISMISSED
Riley & Wells Attorneys-At-Law represented a teenage client who was arrested for Felony Destruction of Property with Intent and Conspiracy to Destroy Property with Intent.

Our attorneys thoroughly and completely analyzed our client’s case. We determined that the best course of action would probably be to convince the prosecution to not prosecute the case.

Chesterfield Statutory Burglary DISMISSED
Chesterfield VA Burglary DISMISSED
Riley & Wells Attorneys-At-Law represented an 18 year old client who was arrested for statutory burglary. The client entered her boyfriend’s house and found him having an affair with another woman. Our client became enraged and attacked him and the other woman. The issue was whether our client entered the house with the intent to commit a crime. The Commonwealth Attorney was unwilling to drop the case or amend the allegation to a misdemeanor. Our client was naturally concerned about serving a prison sentence and becoming a convicted felon at the age of 18. We proceeded to trial and the Circuit Court Judge granted our Motion to Strike the Commonwealth’s case and dismissed the case.
