As people across Virginia prepare to have one last hurrah this summer, law enforcement officers are gearing up for a long weekend on the lookout for drunk drivers.

The long holiday weekend will be marked by increased patrols and DUI checkpoints.

Intoxicated manslaughter laws in Virginia

Involuntary manslaughter is a complex topic on its own; when alcohol enters the picture, the situation becomes all the more complex. In Virginia, manslaughter is defined as the killing of one human being by another, but without intention or premeditation. It is important to know what is at stake in the case of an intoxicated manslaughter. 

Can your car be impounded in Virginia?

You thought it would be fun to go out with your friends, and while it was, you probably had a little too much to drink. You were stopped by the police, and they arrested you at the scene. They informed you that your blood alcohol concentration was over the .08 percent limit, which means that you now face a DUI charge.

Call for more treatment to help with drug addiction

Virginia residents who have ever taken an opioid medication to control pain or know someone who has may have themselves witnessed firsthand the challenges associated with the addictive nature of these drugs. While originally heralded for their ability to help people manage severe pain after surgeries or due to chronic conditions, prescription pain medications like vicodin or oxycodone have led many people to develop serious and even deadly addictions. Along the way, many people have found themselves facing criminal charges related to these drugs as well.

DUIs are serious – especially if you’re underage
