What do drug charges mean for the rest of your college career?

Facing criminal charges can be frightening and overwhelming, especially for a Maryland college student with his or her whole life ahead. Drug charges on college campuses are serious, and they jeopardize your education and future opportunities. If you are facing legal complications as a result of drug possession or other drug-related offenses, you will want to know what to do next. 

Multiple states pass legislation regarding jailhouse informants

Prosecutors say that jailhouse informants are a prime source of accurate information that can hold people accountable for the crimes they have committed. However, groups such as the Innocence Project say that the information they provide may not necessarily be credible. Individuals who are in prison in Maryland or elsewhere may receive lighter sentences or other perks for providing what they know. This could create a conflict of interest as an individual could simply tell prosecutors what they want to hear.
