is this a first offense ?
thank you for that information. the charges carry a possible penalty of incarceration - so he does not want to represent himself - and with a misdemeanor on his record, a plea may not be possible. the only thing he can do is contact the Va Bar Association for a referral service and consult unitl he finds an attorney who will take the matter based on a payment plan. here is a link for that
unfortunately, if he has filled out the application and does not qualify for the PD, he has to hire a private attorney.
i provided the blue link - here - for the referral service. that is the best i can offer you. he will need to call and then get the names of attorneys who might do that
