Former All-Star pitcher facing drug trafficking charges

Baseball fans in Maryland and around the country may remember Esteban Loaiza starting the All Star Game for the American League in 2003. The right-handed pitcher lost only nine games that season while winning 21, but he made headlines of a very different sort on Feb. 9 when he was taken into custody on drug trafficking charges by police in California. A representative of the San Diego Sheriff's Department said that Loaiza was detained after deputies discovered 44 pounds of a white powder believed to be cocaine during a search of his Imperial Beach residence.

Is your child sharing study drugs on campus?

No matter the course of study your child is taking at the University of Maryland, it is normal for any college student to feel the stress that comes with college. Reading assignments, projects, lab work, papers and exams consume an enormous number of hours in addition to class time and practicums. You may worry about your child's ability to keep up on minimal sleep and a diet of junk food and caffeine. However, there may be something more sinister to worry about.

Maryland man facing drug charges after traffic stop

A 21-year-old man was arrested on drug charges in a traffic stop in Prince Frederick on Jan. 22. A local sheriff stopped a car near Sixes Road and Grays Road and found a man from Accokeek behind the wheel. The man provided his information, and the sheriff stated that he recognized a scent of marijuana coming from the car.

The impact of pretrial detention in Maryland

A study by the American Economic Review found that the average defendant in the United States made less than $7,000 in the year before being taken into custody. That lack of an income could play a big role in whether a person is held before trial. In fact, less than 50 percent of individuals analyzed in the study could afford bail even when set at $5,000 or less. In the United States, there are roughly 500,000 who are held each day awaiting trial
