    Unfortunately, I have to disagree with my brother of the bar's advice. In Montgomery County talking to the police NEVER helps, it only hurts. If you say you were there, the statement of charges will say, "HE admits to being at the scene where the crime occured." If you say you saw the irate man, "He admits the man was irate". Why would he be irate if you didn't do anything? The guy took your plate and the cop is investigating. He will be at your home to see if their is paint on any part of...

    I agree with my brothers and sisters responses with one caveat. Do not have your parents help you, only an attorney. if you speak with the police with your parents present all confidentiality is waived and parents do not know what they are doing. they always believe in telling the truth to the nice police officers who are lying to their face about how the best thing for you is to come clean. It is not. Parents just get you in more trouble because your lawyer can't argue you were coerced....

    That is a really difficult question. It would depend upon how many times the attorney would have to visit the jail and communicate with the Client and the State's attorney. It would depend upon whether or not the client was trustworthy or the "story" and the client would be a hard sell. If the attorney determined herself that the individual's story about the other inmate changed or made no sense--there would be a problem compared to having a strong client and credible version that could be...

    The Officers entry was not illegal as the officers asked you if they could come inside and talk and you allowed them to. The other responding officer joined them and had a right to be with his other responding officers. The question is, was that officer in the room with you, or did he wander away without permission? The question is, was the paraphernalia "in plain view" where the officer had a right to be? Or, was it secreted, in a place that the officer actually had to move something, or...

    You have interlock because you blew over a .15 not because you chose interlock. You are in treatment which is a minimal effort for the court. You could do 90 AA meetings in 90 days, get a home group, a sponsor a service position. You could go to Right Turn for a weekend. You could do community service. Despite all of that you are still lokking at some incarceration to drive the point home as this is your third drinking and driving offense. You do need an attorney no matter what you do.

  6. My boyfriend and I were involved in a domestic violence dispute. I want to know my rights before I talk to either lawyers.

    These are extremely serious charges and all Maryland State's attorney Offices treat domestic violence like potential murder cases to begin with. You probably already made statements and perhaps he did too. Anything either one of you have already done is locked in to hurt you. If you were treated by a doctor all of that is recorded and anything you said to each person there is recorded. You were probably interviewed by the Detectives in your drunken state and made statements against your...

  7. I received a subpoena in the mail as a witness for the State. The case is a 2nd degree assault against my husband.

    No one wants to put in writing that a subpoena in the mail is not good service. Read the rule. It is supposed to be personal service. You will not be held in contempt because no one knows if you were served, or not, due to the fact that you were not personally served. If it were put in your hand by the Sheriff (that is how we do it in Montgomery County) you must appear or you could be picked up and held in contempt; and it does happen. If it was mailed the State will ask for and receive a...

  8. If my daughter was given weekends and violated due to drug test and she goes back and thay keep her cause she failed the test,

    Your daughter cannot get a sentence of 1 year and 6 months without returning to court on a Hearing to Show Cause whether or not she Violated Probation. At that hearing she would be given the opportunity to have a Public Defender or hire Counsel to defend the allegations. If she were guilty she could mitigate the reasons why the reimposition of the full back-up time is not necessary. Since that did not occur, I believe my learned friend Ed Tidings has addressed what occurred above.

    You know exactly what you have to do. Get an attorney now! You already admitted you drank. You already agreed to write a statement with the admission. They took your blood all with your cooperation. Did any Trooper actually see you behind the wheel? You need a great attorney in your area to get to work on this now. Please, do not help the Trooper any more. He will be knocking on your door when he brings you your blood results, takes away your license and issues you your temporary license....
