From Giving Thanks To Domestic Violence Allegations

The holiday season is one of the most stressful times of the year. When family relationships are strained, getting together for holidays - like Thanksgiving - can be anything but relaxing and joyful. It's not uncommon for family disputes to erupt. Unfortunately, it's a small step from verbal fights to threats and physical violence - especially when alcohol is involved as it often is during holiday celebrations.

Understanding the process of "Shielding" in Maryland

Being convicted of a crime carries serious consequences. One of these is that any member of the public can look up all of the details of a criminal trial. That is because criminal trials are a matter of public record, both in Maryland and in the rest of the country. However, there is a process in the state which can block certain types of criminal cases from public viewing.

Increased DUI Patrols Over The Holidays

Between October 31 and December 31 more than 350 people were arrested for drunk driving in Prince George's County and Montgomery County last year. Why? A special initiative led by the Maryland State Police to crack down on drunk driving over the holidays. While no formal initiative has been announced this year, you can - and should - expect increased DUI patrol from now until the New Year.

Maryland man arrested and charged with attempted murder

Being arrested and accused of any serious violent crime felony such as assault or murder can have a devastating effect on the individual charged with these crimes. Felony charges in Maryland carry very significant penalties that can change the course of a person's life. Recently, one Maryland man has found himself in just this kind of life-altering situation.

When can someone be removed from the Sex Offender Registry?

Most Maryland residents know that if someone is convicted of a sexual crime in the state, then that person must register as a sex offender. They may also know that being a convicted sex offender means that the convicted individual has to remain on the sex offender list for a specific period of time. But are there situations when someone can be removed from the state's sex offender registry?

What is a warrant?

Prosecutors need a variety of evidence in order to convict person on the crime in Maryland. Sometimes this evidence comes in the form of physical evidence collected by police during an investigation. Evidence can be critical in the prosecutor's case. Without the evidence, it may be impossible or prosecutors to move forward with the case or to convict the accused on the criminal charges.
