You need to consult with a Virginia criminal defense attorney as soon as you can. Don't make any public statements about what happened and don't speak with the police or Commonwealth Attorney until you speak with an attorney. You are going to make it through this, but you need an experienced attorney to help you make the right choices throughout this process. You don't want all of this on your record for the rest of your life.

Feel free to contact my office for a free consultation or contact the Virginia State Bar or your local county or city bar association for an attorney referral.
