It is relatively easy to make accusations against a person. In some cases, a simple phone call is all it takes to initiate a police investigation. In fact, a warrant has been issued for a man in Virginia after a woman claims he took her 6 month-old baby from her. He faces charges of assault and abduction.
Police in Virginia are obligated to investigate accusations made against others. However, a person can only be convicted of criminal charges if there is sufficient evidence to prove that a person is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Unfortunately, police have recently filed charges against a Virginia man accused of sexual assault.
Each family in Virginia has its own unique dynamics. While some families may be calm and without conflict at all times, other families may be more volatile. Regardless of the tendency toward calm or volatile, violence as a result of a family conflict is relatively rare. However, one man was recently charged with assault following an alleged altercation with his wife.
Crimes are often incredibly complex. Investigations often take months to complete, and even then, the results may be inconclusive. However, police in Virginia say they have already discovered enough details about a recent incident to allow them to file a criminal charge against a teenager even though they only had two days to fully understand the details of what appears to be a complicated situation.
