The Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program (VASAP) is a court ordered education and treatment program. Failure to successfully complete VASAP will trigger serious penalties.Successful completion will require 1) attending appointments and classes, 2) abstaining from drug and alcohol use, 3) proper usage of the ignition interlock device if ordered, and 4) not getting arrested or charged with new violations. A VASAP violation can trigger more supervision, new charges, loss of restricted driving privileges and jail.

Skilled Virginia Criminal Defense Attorneys Represent VASAP Clients
Properly defending a VASAP allegation is critically important because so much is on the line. First and foremost, nobody wants to go to jail. The often overlooked component to VASAP cases is the prior suspended sentence. A suspended sentence can have several months of jail time that can be activated by the Judge if its determined that you violated the terms of a prior Court order. A VASAP violation can put you in jeopardy of having a previously suspended jail sentence imposed.
