I was charged with Attempted first Degree Murder as well as attempted second degree murder and 1st degree assault. they were all nolle prosequi and PBJ entered on second degree assault and supervised probation given. I violated probation and want ...
No, attorneys Scherr and Ness are correct. Since you were found or plead guilty to the 2nd degree assault, the other charges can not be brought back. But you are potentially facing up to ten years on that charge. Retain an attorney or apply to the public defender at least ten court days before the VOP hearing date.See question
Have to pay restitution every month for 24 months I'm paying for one kid to go to college and my three other kids and my house. I just wanted to know what I get in trouble because I have to make a restitution payment every month on the 8th but I n...
Attorneys Scherr and Nolan are nth. correct. I read you question as being not a one time issue, but one that reoccurs every month. If that is the case, and the "due date" was set by the court in the probation order, it is much more wise and correct to get back in front the sentencing judge to have that date changed or modified.See question
See question above
Regrettably that is correct, and the DUI PBJ cannot be expunged.See question
My daughter was arrested for shoplifting, she was given pbj, and ordered to pay court fees but won't have the money to pay it for a few weeks after the due date.
As the others have said, not paying the fines/court costs opens her up to a possible violation of probation hearing which carries the possibility of jail. Worse, it places keeping the PBJ at risk, which could mean not been able to have the charges eventually expunged. That leads to likely carrying theft charge on her record which will haunt her for ever.See question

Attorney Scherr is correct. Whether it is a misunderstanding some other innocent explanation, the charge is what is called a "must appear" because the potential penalties if he were to be found guilty include the possibility of incarceration. He should take this matter seriously and retain and attorney. The fact of being charged can have an impact on the military as well. If he is unable to afford a private attorney apply to the office of the public defender at least ten working days before court.See question
My daughter was caught and cited yesterday for shoplifting $70.00 worth of make up in Annapolis. She has never been in any trouble before and is an Honors student with a 4.4 GPA. She has a athletic scholarship to college and is fearful she may los...
Your daughter absolutely needs to retain an attorney. She has a great deal at risk with even a PBJ in this matter, what with her athletic scholarship and professional ambitions - shoplifting is a theft, a crime of dishonesty. She absolutely should not attempt to contact the prosecutors - let her attorney do that at the appropriate time. It may indeed be possible to get the matter dismissed, but this is not a DIY matter, especially given her situation. Return to therapy and community service is a good start. Depending upon the store there may also be a civil demand by attorneys for the store for a "civil penalty" as well, and the demand letters will only add to the stress. Retain an attorney as soon as possible.See question
I was sleeping in my car at the parking lot because I was tired. Did not drink at all and I was arrested and released within 30 minutes but took my license away
Attorney Scherr's comment is spot on. If the police didn't issue a so called temporary license you may have a defense to the potential lengthy suspension he is referring to. You don't get to contest that suspension if you don't request the hearing. Time is of the essence.
If you were in fact charged you will also have to go to court.
Although the public defender will represent you in court, they can not represent you at that MVA hearing.

Hi there, on October 13th, 2016 around 6pm, I made a wrong turn in to the restricted area of NSA in Annapolis Junction, MD, and was asked where I was born, I answered "China", and was directed to a side lot. After two hours of car search and inter...
I agree with the answers you have received so far. With a valid Chinese drivers license and/or an international permit, it should be relatively easy to obtain a Maryland license - my wife as a Chinese court interpreter used to translate the Chinese license for clients.
It is unclear where the charge os pending. In the matters I have handled from Ft. Meade, it is possible to be charged in either state court or federal court. The way the matter proceeds will vary depending upon that. The fact of your immigration status becomes a potential concern as well.
As others have stated, it is critical to retain a competent attorney - search for one on this website or on the internet.See question

First and foremost, retain a DUI/DWI attorney to examine legal defenses. If you can not afford a private attorney, apply to the office of the public defender at least ten days before court. Begin an alcohol counseling program as recommended by your attorney. Do not post any more facts on the website because it is open to review by anyone.See question
