Prince George VA Solicitation of a Prostitute DISMISSED
Our Prince George criminal attorneys represented a U.S. Army soldier who was temporarily stationed at Fort Lee for a short term assignment. Our client was looking for companionship on the internet. Eventually, our client found an escort thru a specific website and went to meet her at a local hotel. Our client did not know that the escort and internet posting was part of a police sting operation. Our client later made contact with the ‘escort’ and engaged in a discussion regarding an exchange of money to perform a sex act. This type of act is a criminal offense called solicitation of prostitution. Our client was subsequently accused of soliciting a prostitute and faced serious problems involving incarceration, family problems and security clearance issues.

Prince George County Felony Perjury REDUCED
Our Prince George Criminal Defense Attorneys represented a client who was directly indicted for felony perjury. The incident occurred when our client, who was represented by a different attorney at the time, testified in the traffic court during his trial for reckless driving. The truthfulness of some of our client’s testimony under oath became very controversial. In short, the prosecutor believed our client lied to the court under oath. The testimony under oath in question surrounded our client’s driving history from another state. Our client testified during the trial in the earlier proceeding in the traffic court and was required to answer questions from the prosecuting attorney on cross examination. To be candid, the prior attorney did not prepare the client for trial, and it showed. Many of the client’s answers were so ambiguous and vague that the truthfulness of his answers became very questionable. This was the primary issue of our client’s trial in the Circuit Court after being directly indicted by the prosecutor for perjury. This time, our client was prepared for trial and a not guilty plea was entered. After all the evidence and argument were presented, our attorneys convinced the Court to find our client not guilty of felony perjury, and the case was reduced. Our client was satisfied that he avoided a permanent felony conviction.
Prince George VA Impersonating a Police Officer
This case started with a traffic stop for excessive speed. Our client presented his driver’s license upon request. He additionally presented his Uncle’s police association PBA Card in the hopes of receiving some leniency. The Prince George police officer believed our client was impersonating a police officer by presenting his Uncle’s PBA card. Our attorneys analyzed the case and determined that the police officer did not gather sufficient evidence to prove a police impersonation case. We convinced a normally fierce prosecutor to drop the police impersonation offense. Our client was relieved to put what had become a nightmare behind him by dropping the matter.
