In Virginia, if you are charged with a crime (even if it is dismissed) evidence of the charge stays on your criminal record forever and can be seen by anyone requesting a criminal background check of you. In order to remove all traces of the charge, Virginia law requires that an expungement order must be granted by the Circuit Court. Don't let past mistakes jeopardize your future. Contact Evans Oliver PLC today to see if you are eligible for an expungement.
If you have been charged with Underage Possession of Alcohol, your first court appearance will be with over 100 other college students and several people will tell you about "First Offender" and how you can get your charge "dismissed." Like any decision in life, there are pros and cons to accepting a First Offender plea for underage possession of alcohol. You should call an attorney to discuss your case and whether this is the right choice for you. Give us a call at Evans Oliver PLC. We can help.
