Hampton Roads Eluding Police Lawyer
Convictions for eluding the police are either felonies or misdemeanors.
Have you been charged with eluding the police? In Virginia, state law dictates there is no middle ground for convictions related to fleeing the scene of a crime and/or eluding police. If other factors are involved such as alcohol, drugs or resisting arrest, you may face additional charges. Contact The Law Offices of Gary W. Searcy, PLC.

Judges have no room for leniency so you must have a solid defense.
If you are convicted of eluding the police, judges have only two options when determining the penalty: felony or misdemeanor conviction. If you simply do not pull over for an officer and no person is injured, you will face a class 2 misdemeanor. However, while fleeing from an officer, if you put that officer or a member of the public in harm's way, you will face a class 6 felony.
Because judges are not allowed to offer greater or lesser penalties for convictions related to eluding the police, it is essential for you to obtain a proven defense lawyer. As your attorney, Gary W. Searcy will study all circumstantial facts and evidence. He will also petition for charges to be dropped or a felony reduced to a misdemeanor depending on your individual situation.
