Experienced Charlottesville Criminal Attorney

Virginia criminal law underlines the rules of law established by state and federal governments to set a standard of conduct for people to obey. Any action or failure to act in violation of a law commanding or forbidding it is classified a “crime”. A crime is defined as conduct that threatens, harms or endangers the safety of people and is split into four major sub-categories: fatal offenses, personal offenses, property offenses and participatory offenses.

Fatal offenses typically revolve around homicide and manslaughter, while personal offenses deal with instances of assault and battery, rape and sexual abuse. Property offenses in Virginia include breaking and entering, burglary and theft. Aiding in a criminal act would result in a participatory offense.

In Criminal Defense Law, the suit is initiated by the state or federal government through a prosecutor rather than being initiated by the victim, as it is in civil law. Plaintiffs in a civil law suit only need to show by a preponderance of the evidence that a defendant is 51% or more liable (responsible) for the damages. But, the prosecutor in a criminal defense law case has to prove to the judge or jury “beyond a reasonable doubt” that the defendant is guilty of the crime charged.
