    The subpeona requires you to be in court. It would be wise to contact the State's Attorney, whose name and phone number should appear on the subpoena, and discuss your situation. The State may be willing to file a request to postpone the case until you return. If they agree to release you for the date on the subpoena, make sure you get the release in writing, If the State will not release you from the subpoena, your alternative is to get an attorney to assist you. Simply failing to attend can...

    You have asked whether under current Maryland law you can get a DUI or a DWI for which you have received Probation before Judgment expunged. The answer is no, you cannot. If you are reading a post to the contrary, either the post is outdated by current Maryland law or the person who wrote it was misinformed. I wish you well.

    You cannot expunge a DUI for which you've been convicted. In addition, you cannot expunge a DUI for which you've received PBJ. There are no exceptions. Information to the contrary is out of date or erroneous. I wish you well.

    First, stop drinking alcohol immediately. At some point, a Judge may very well ask you when was the last time you drank. There is only one good answer -- on the day I was arrested in this case. Second, if you suffer from a disorder of any kind, or suspect you have a disorder, contact your health care provider and schedule an appointment immediately. You may either (2) need a modification in your prescription, or (2) need to be examined to determine if you have an undiagnosed disorder for which...

    You have asked whether the police are required to stop questioning you once you stated, "I think I need to speak to an attorney." You have provided us with some background information for that statement. The police arrived at your home. They questioned you. You offered to let them search your house and car. You agreed to take a lie detector test, which was never given. You were never arrested nor confined in any way. On these facts, the short answer to your question is that the police did not...

    You have asked if is possible for you to get a PBJ without a lawyer, by representing yourself. This question can only be answered abstractly because a judge's decision to grant, or not grant, PBJ is based on many factors. We don't know any of the factors in your case. Further, no competent attorney would look at those factors and encourage you to go forward unrepresented. There are many reasons for this. I'll give you one very good reason to have an attorney in court. You are the defendant....

    You are asking for the potential consequences of misleading your attorney, misleading the court, misleading the prosecutor, committing perjury and using false and misleading evidence. You should consider that a lie is a direct communication to the listener that he is too stupid or ignorant to comprehend that you are lying to him. You should also consider that lying to a judge also is a statement that you have no respect for the judge's role as truth finder and peaceful arbiter of conflict. You...

    You face probation revocation. Your probation officer is likely to advise the judge that you violated probation and a probation violation hearing will be scheduled. You must obtain an attorney to represent you at that nearing now. An attorney may be able to explain to the judge why he should extend probation rather than impose a jail sentence, strike the PBJ, give you a conviction for the DUI and schedule your possession case for trial. The DUI, if changed from PBJ to conviction, will result...

    Your friend should retain an attorney who can advise your friend how to surrender himself on the warrants so that new court dates can be set. He should bring his copies of the documents he received from the jail showing the dates that he was incarcerated. This will show that his absence from court was beyond his control and not intentional. Now that he has been released he must promptly surrender in order to demonstrate that it was his intent to fulfil his obligations to appear in court. If he...

    Generally, your probation order contains a provision that you cannot travel outside of Maryland during the probation period without obtaining permission from your probation officer. If you leave without obtaining permission you will be violating the terms of probation. A violation will result in the probation officer reporting your violation to the court and asking that the court schedule a hearing to give you the opportunity to admit to the violation or show that you did not commit the...
