Richard Morgan
Attorney at Law



      Iím a criminal defense attorney with a state-wide practice. Iíve worked in the various state courts listed under "Jurisdictions", as well in the various divisions of the United States District Courts for the Eastern District of Virginia and for the Western District of Virginia. 

     In my travels across Virginia Iíve represented people for homicides, robberies, larceny offenses, and DWI's, but Iíve come to accumulate what I feel is a high level of experience in the defense of drug offenses, probation violations, and sex crimes.

1. DRUG OFFENSES: the possession and/or distribution of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, and other hard drugs; the possession and alleged misuse of prescription drugs and steroids; and prescription forgery. 

Conviction for even the simple possession of a drug can lead to disastrous consequences for oneís employment. A drug defendant has certain protections under the Federal and state Constitutions against unreasonable searches and seizures, and it is always important for the prosecutionís Ďevidenceí to be reviewed thoroughly so that the defendant and his attorney can choose the best option, and conceivably, for more minor offenses, avoid convictions altogether. For defendants cursed with a drug addiction, there are various statutory schemes that include evaluation and treatment by which convictions may also be avoided.

Under "Drug Offenses", I list state and Federal drug offenses and offer the insight that Iíve gained from nearly two decades as a defense attorney.

2. PROBATION VIOLATIONS: Do they want to revoke your suspended sentence?  We need to do something about this.  All state courts (Circuit Court, General District Court, JDR Court) and Federal court.

3.  SEX CRIMES: rape, molestation, child pornography, prostitution, and, for lack of a more concise phrase, ďuse of the Internet to have sexual contact with childrenĒ.

Just being charged with any sex offense brings with it a level of approbation that one doesnít see with other criminal offenses. Being convicted of that sex offense, at the very least, will require regular registration with law enforcement and will curtail oneís ability to live wherever one pleases. At worst, a convicted sex offender will spend decades in a state or Federal penitentiary.  

     Under "Sex Offenses" youíll see just that: state and Federal sex crimes listed by statute, along with my descriptions of what a conviction could entail for you. I also seek to offer some insight into the whole process, gleaned from my experience as a defense attorney.
