Altered Tags Virginia Class 1 Misdemeanor Arlington Fairfax Richmond Virginia Beach Fredericksburg

Updated on: 8:23 pm


Did you know that driving with altered tags is a class 1 misdemeanor?

The Virginia cops are handing out altered tag tickets like it is candy in Arlington County, Fairfax County and other Virginia Courts.

I was in Arlington County General District Court and I saw two people agree to plead guilty to an altered tag ticket.

Neither of them had an attorney and I don’t think either of them had an idea that they were pleading guilty to a Class 1 Misdemeanor in Virginia.

Be aware that a Virginia Class 1 Misdemeanor conviction can land you in jail.
