Legal Answers
Q. if i own my own home and a raid happen i should have paper work from the law if someone beside my self lives there
A: By law, a copy of the search warrant and affidavit must be served by law enforcement either on the property owner or (if the owner is not present) on an adult occupant. If no one is present, then the documents are to be left in a conspicuous location at the property. Additionally, law enforcement officers are required to file a return (which includes the search warrant, the affidavit in support of the search warrant, as well as an inventory of what was recovered) in the Circuit Court clerk's office for the jurisdiction in which the search took place.
Q. Can I take an online driver course at 19 to offset demerit points for 60mph in a 45 if my prior driving history is clean
A: Attending a DMV-approved driver improvement clinic voluntarily may result in you being awarded 5 safe driving points. This can be done once every two years. When you enroll you should be able to provide your reason for attending the clinic; if it's entered into the system as being done voluntarily and not the result of a court order then you should receive the points. This is according to what the Virginia DMV has published on their website about this topic.
Q. I was wondering if a cop is allowed to search a locked container, glove box, and trunk if I was pulled over. I’m in VA.
A: The law has allowed warrantless searches of automobiles since the 1920s, as long as probable cause exists to justify the search. The locked status of the containers or compartments of the vehicle shouldn't matter if there's probable cause to justify the search. The inability to readily access the contents of a container or compartment can be helpful to an accused in other contexts (e.g. on questions of actual possession or constructive possession of whatever is found inside) but it generally won't prevent law enforcement from having the ability to search those spaces if there's justification.
