The law regardings operating a motor vehicle while impaired in Maryland is not limited to alcohol. It applies to drugs and controlled dangerous substances alone as well as in combinatin with alcohol.
I also wonder out loud if you were or will be charged with paraphernalia.
Your performance on SFST's can be challenged in Court.
You absolutely NEED a lawyer.
This sounds good because they did not involve the police, however, the civil remedy they will use will likely require repayment of more than the $7.50
Also, most states require that repayment under any civil remedy can NOT be used against person in any criminal case.
They can always seek to file criminal charges down the line, BUT it sounds like they will go the easy route this time.
Take stock in the fact that the police were NOT invovled.
Make sure to read very carefully the...
I would ask them in writing, by certified mail, to preserve the video so that it is not overwritten or destroyed in the normal course of business.
Company's, particularly state agencies, have protocols they follow to insure that their records and information is not simply given out to anyone that asks. They also could face exposure for giving out all kinds of information to whomever asks.
Be careful posting specific details and naming names on this public website.
I would wait to see what, if any juvenile charges are brought against the kids who assaulted your son. Be mindful, that it is POSSIBLE................that your son could be charged as well. Even though it seems clear he was acting in self defense. Remember, just becaues he is charged with any crime, does not mean he has committed it. If he does get charged, I would immediately obtain a private attorney or public...

The simplest answer is YES. The fact that you have been charged with serious offenses means that, upon conviction, you could be sentenced to a period of incarceration.
Just because you did not take any money, did not have a weapon, and did not inflict any harm, DOES NOT MEAN you have not exposure.
YOU NEED A LAWYER ASAP to protect before trial, during trial, and if you are convicted, at sentencing.
If you can not afford a private attorney, apply for a public defender asap !
Digital signatures are acceptable, however, make sure that the signature is for an individual that was working on the day of the analysis and still employed and available to testify in Court. Be aware that you have a right to demand the presence, in Court, of any chemist/analyst who prepared an analysis. There are time requirements to make such a demand.
Obviously, if you make the demand, and the person who did the analysis is not available or unable to appear in Court, you may have...
Never give up on your dream. There are many companies that deal with lawyer placements. You should try to get involved with a legal temp agency to get some exposure. Perhaps there is an area of the law that you will fall in love with that you never knew existed.
GOOD LUCK !
If she has been charged criminally, the simple answer is YES, she would greatly benefit from the services of attorney.
The attorney can assist her to insure her rights are protected before and during trial and if need be at sentencing.
Good Luck, and, do not WAIT to begin the process for obtaining an attorney.
