    Episode 70: They "Made" Me Do It!

    This is a short and sweet after the July 4th Holiday weekend episode about entrapment!  We get a lot of questions from people about what is entrapment or field allegations from clients that they are only charged due to police entrapment.  So today we tell you what entrapment is and is not in Virginia!

    Episode 69: Fairfax County Mental Health Treatment Docket

    Episode 69: Fairfax County Mental Health Treatment Docket

    We went big in this episode and had 4 guests on this show from the Fairfax County Mental Health Treatment Docket!  We were lucky that Judge Tina Snee from the Fairfax County General District Court, Michelle Cowherd, the Mental Health Treatment Docket Coordinator, Christian Fernandez one of the Fairfax County Assistant Commonwealth Attorneys, and Negin Farahmand Wood, a rock star Fairfax County Public Defender all agreed to come on to help us educate folks on what a mental health treatment docket is, how it works in Fairfax, and why it is so important!  Judge Snee was our first female judge to join us on the show and we have never had a Commonwealth Attorney and Public Defender on together in an episode and we survived it so we may have to try that again!

    Episode 68: Hold On! That's Really Abduction?

    Episode 68: Hold On! That's Really Abduction?

    When you hear about abductions you probably think wow, someone was kidnapped.  Someone was held at knifepoint or gun point and not allowed to leave.  But abduction in Virginia has a specific meaning when it comes to bringing a charge against someone.  A recent case came out of the  Virginia Court of Appeals called Brown v Commonwealth which you can read about here https://www.vacourts.gov/opinions/opncavwp/0598212.pdf
    In this episode we discuss this new opinion that just came out on May 10, 2022 and we help to try to educate everyone on how the simplest of actions can lead to a felony like abduction.

    Episode 66: The Verdict Is In

    Episode 66: The Verdict Is In

    The Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial ended and the verdict came in last week.  Depp won on all 3 counts and he was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages but the judgment for punitive damages will be capped at $350,000 per Virginia law.  Heard lost 2 out of 3 of her counts and was awarded $2 million dollars in compensatory damages and no punitive damages were awarded to her by the jury.  In this episode we break down what we think about the verdict and this trial that went on for several weeks here in Fairfax County.

    Episode 65: I'd Like To See Some "ID"

    Episode 65: I'd Like To See Some "ID"

    Do you really have to show your ID when police ask you to give it to them?  As with many attorney responses, the answer is "it depends."  In this episode we welcome a friend and fellow defense attorney Kaveh Noorishad (also known as the "Persian Powerhouse").  We get into a lively discussion while we talk about some local statutes in various counties in Virginia as well as some case law that address this very issue.  If you are curious about what you should do when you encounter an officer who is asking for you ID, we are hoping this episode helps explain what Virginia law requires, what we recommend, and the consequences you face if you do not comply with what the law requires.

Ann Thayer is So Knowledgeable

I was impressed how Ann was able to put this podcast together so quickly and keep things organized. She does a great job of explaining new Virginia laws and educating the public on Criminal Law in Virginia. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone who wants to learn more about Virginia Criminal Law.

Informative and interesting, with lots of humor and fun

This is a great podcast, especially if you’re interested in the law, and probably even if you aren’t. The hosts are funny and friendly too. Highly recommend; can’t wait for the next episode!
