  • Drug field testing should not be used to justify pretrial detention nor a conviction, says Fairfax criminal lawyer.

  • Risks must be taken in criminal defense, says Virginia criminal lawyer. Risks can abound in criminal defense.

Mitchell Larnell Bennett learned that lesson when the Virginia Court of Appeals last week affirmed his felony drug distribution conviction in large part through relying on audio and silenced video of a deceased undercover informant drug buyer obtaining cocaine from Bennett. Bennett v. Virginia, ___ Va. App. ___ (Nov. 20, 2018)....
