Prince George's County prosecutors recently announced that a bench warrant had been issued for a 49-year-old Upper Marlboro woman. According to reports, the woman is being charged with two counts of theft, one count of second-degree assault and one count of obtaining money from a vulnerable adult. The accused runs an assisted living residence and is believed to have convinced residents to give her access to their financial accounts.
A Maryland murder suspect was arrested in another state this past week. According to the Prince George County Police, the man will be extradited to Upper Marlboro where he will face first degree-murder charges. The police believe the 23 year-old suspect, of Landover, shot and killed a 22 year-old after an argument near his home.
State police in Maryland released the names of those arrested following a drug bust in Glen Burie. The individuals included four males and one female ranging from 22 to 29- years-old. The accused face several drug charges including possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and the possession of paraphernalia.
When a defendant faces charges, often much of their life is affected. No matter what the charges stem from, the defendant's professional and personal life are often damaged. This is often due to the media surrounding the event.
