Virginia criminal lawyer says Alexandria jurors are largely not skeptical of police and prosecutors

Alexandria city's population includes plenty of government employees and people with good incomes, and its jurors are generally not likely to start off as skeptical of police, prosecutors and their functions. Judges and jurors in this courthouse can be persuaded for the Virginia criminal defense and DUI defense side, nonetheless, in that each prosecution is unique and does not always rely on dismantling the credibility of police in order to obtain an acquittal or other victory in court.

Alexandria General District Court misdemeanor and DUI cases start off with an arraignment date soon after the incident date. A defendant can avoid attending the arraignment by in advance hiring a lawyer who enters an appearance in the case. Before the arraignment date, the defendant's lawyer can check with the prosecutor's office to agree on a trial date. If an agreed trial date cannot be reached, the matter may be addressed with the judge.
