Under the Shadow of COVID-19, the Right to a Speedy Trial Has Suffered Further

By |September 8th, 2020|Criminal|0 Comments

Under the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, every criminal defendant has the right to receive a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury. The same right is also guaranteed in many state constitutions and state laws. In recent years, the right to a speedy trial has fallen to the wayside, as our nation’s courts suffer serious backlogs. Defendants are often left waiting for weeks and months simply to obtain a [...]

Can You Face Criminal Charges for Posting on the Internet?

By |July 6th, 2020|Criminal|0 Comments

A major danger in posting on social media accounts is that the posting constitutes a written record. Unlike an oral action, where the case revolves around the credibility of each person, written records are generally deemed to be credible evidence. According to the Baltimore Sun, police in Anne Arundel County are investigating threats that were made on their Facebook page. While the police department wouldn’t give more information about the threats, a spokesperson said that [...]

Personal Breathalyzer Tests Could Land You in Jail for DUI

By |May 19th, 2020|DUI|0 Comments

Many people don’t have any idea how intoxicated they are before they get into a vehicle and start to drive. To ensure their own safety (and perhaps the safety of others), some people turn to personalized breathalyzers: devices that can be purchased by non-law enforcement individuals to test their blood alcohol content (BAC). Some bars and taverns may offer use of these devices, too, to test their patrons’ BAC. If the patron is drunk, then [...]

What Rights Will I Lose after a Criminal Conviction in Maryland?

By |April 21st, 2020|Criminal|0 Comments

A Maryland-based group called Life After Release is working to ensure those detained and incarcerated while awaiting trial have access to vote. Although there’s no law on the books in our state that prevents people charged with a crime from voting, detained individuals often can’t vote because they don’t have the accessibility to do so. Once detained and behind bars, they can’t access their polling place and may not know their other options. The group, [...]

Proposed Legislation Aims to Change Maryland Electronic Court Records Loophole

By |March 5th, 2020|Criminal|0 Comments

Recent legislation proposed by a Maryland judiciary panel targets a “loophole” in the state’s electronic court records system that allows attorneys to indiscriminately keep court filings hidden from the public. State Senator Jill Carter sponsored the bill in an effort to provide transparency and allow judges, rather than prosecution or defense attorneys, to decide what court documents should or should not be publicly accessible. This loophole came to light during a case involving the murder [...]

Do Tests Exist That Prove Someone Was Driving Under the Influence of Narcotics?

By |February 4th, 2020|DUI|0 Comments

It’s standard procedure in drunk driving cases to give drivers field sobriety tests and breath tests. If the police obtain a warrant, they can also demand that the driver submit to a blood test. The rules are different for drivers suspected of driving under the influence of narcotics. For starters, there is no breath test for detecting drugs in someone’s system. If the police officer suspects a driver was operating his/her vehicle while under the [...]

What Does the Phrase “Chain of Custody” Mean?

By |January 28th, 2020|Drugs|0 Comments

The phrase “chain of custody” commonly refers to the proper preservation of tangible evidence that is used in trial. The burden is placed on the prosecution to show, every step of the way, that the evidence that is seized or taken is properly preserved. The prosecution needs to show that nobody was able to tamper with the evidence in any way. Some evidence must be preserved in refrigerator units or chemically preserved. Other types of [...]

Failure to Pay Child Support and Loss of Driving Privileges by the MVA

By |January 21st, 2020|DUI|0 Comments

Many drivers lose their driving privileges due to a DUI conviction, their refusal to take a breath test, or because they accumulated too many points on their driving record. Drivers in Maryland can also lose their right to drive if they fail to pay their child support. The Motor Vehicle Administration and the Child Support Enforcement Administration (CSEA) work together to collect child support payments. Parents who fail to comply with their child support order [...]
