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.

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.

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 [...]

Is CBD Oil Legal in Maryland?

By |January 14th, 2020|Criminal|0 Comments

Cannabidiol – also known as CBD – products come in all forms: lotions, creams, beverages, foods, cosmetics, and other consumables and things that can be applied to your body. The products are being sold in retail stores, health stores, and online. And even though marijuana use is still illegal in Maryland (barring approved, prescribed medical use), CBD products derived from hemp are not.
