Norfolk Police Officer Kristin W. Harris Gets Community Service For Drug SalesEarlier this month, former Norfolk Police Officer Kristin Wayne Harris, was sentenced in Virginia Beach to 100 hours of community service in exchange for a two-year suspended prison sentence for felony drug dealing. (See Virginian-Pilot Article)

Harris resigned from his position with the Norfolk Police Department immediately after being charged. He pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance; and the Commonwealth Attorney dropped 11 other charges.

As with Harris, a drug dealing conviction can have adverse effects on one’s life over and above the legal consequences. A conviction of a drug crime may result in loss of employment, loss of your driver’s license, as well as place a strain on your business, social and family relationships.
