Attorney Eric Leckie of Invictus Law is defending a 19 year old woman who is facing two counts of “accessory after the fact of murder” charges in connection to the murder of a 27-year-old man in Chesapeake Birch Trail Circle. According to an article by WAVY News, the woman turned herself in to police, but Attorney Leckie argues that his client is innocent. “She was at the wrong place at the wrong time and hopefully we will get this all straightened out,” Attorney Leckie said. “She was a witness to a horrible, horrible crime.”
Virginia law defines “accessory after the fact” as an offense that is committed by an individual “who receives, comforts, or assists a felon knowing that he has committed a felony, or is sought in connection with the commission of a felony.” Two other suspects in connection with the homicide have been arrested and are facing second-degree murder charges.
