Strong defense could help you avoid DUI conviction

If a DUI charge has been leveled against you, you may start beating yourself up over ending up in such an ordeal. However, anyone could find him or herself in such a situation, and rather than focusing on the negative aspects, you may wish to look into how you could handle your case. There are many factors that could impact the outcome of your specific predicament, and, therefore, you may still have cause for a hopeful result.

A man allegedly pulls a gun out in an encounter with a deputy

Earlier this week, a 31-year-old man from Waldorf, Maryland, was arrested following a break-in near the Dahlgren area.

When police arrived at the scene, they found one man walking away.

How to protect yourself and your future from criminal charges

If you have been charged with a felony, you have everything to lose if you are found guilty, and everything to gain, including your freedom, if you are able to fight the charges and win. But even if you are totally innocent of a crime, if you are being charged, it means that prosecutors have enough evidence and believe they are capable of winning the case in their favor.

What qualifies as sexual assault?

Sexual assault is, unfortunately, a common crime to be charged in courts throughout the United States.

What if I decide not to take an alcohol test at a traffic stop?

You naturally may worry about how being convicted of driving under the influence may impact your reputation and potential future job opportunities in addition to resulting in jail time, a fine and the suspension of your driver's license. However, you have the right to refuse to submit to an alcohol test during a traffic stop in Maryland.
