Web restrictions on criminal defendants


Courts have prohibited criminal defendants from using the internet as a condition of their probation or supervised release in sexual assault or other sexual offense cases. However, the U.S. Supreme Court recently recognized evolving technology and free speech protections while overturning a North Carolina law prohibiting registered sex offenders from accessing internet websites that could enable direct communications with minors.

I got pulled over and arrested for DUI! What am I facing?

More than likely, you thought you were okay to drive home after a night out. You started your journey, and everything was going fine until you heard that familiar and pulse-quickening squawk of a police siren behind you. If the officer suspects that you are impaired, he or she may ask you to submit to a breath test and field sobriety tests.

Former detective beats theft charges


Having a police badge does not guarantee that Maryland law enforcement officers will not face the situation where they need to mount a criminal defense. Earlier this month, prosecutors withdrew criminal charges alleging that a Baltimore police detective engaged in fraud by exaggerating his education credentials while seeking a salary raise.

Doctors face drug charges for allegedly selling prescriptions


With thousands of Americans reportedly overdosing on opioids and painkillers, law enforcement officials have been cracking down on prescription drug crime. Maryland police departments are working with federal agents to put a stop to overdose deaths in Maryland by going after doctors who misuse their licenses.

Breaking down possession with the intent to distribute

Perhaps you got off the Beltway on your way back to Upper Marlboro and a police officer stopped you for speeding. After talking to you for a couple of minutes, the officer asked you to exit the vehicle. Whether the officer believed he or she had probable cause or asked for your consent, the officer conducted a search of your vehicle.

Drugged driving in Maryland


Maryland law enforcement can file drug charges against individuals who possess or distribute drugs. Police can also make arrests of motorists who drive under the influence of drugs. A person may be guilty of driving under the influence for operating any vehicle unsafely because they are too impaired by any drug. It is also illegal to operate a vehicle while being impaired by a controlled substance.
