My tags were expired (long story). The citation the officer gave me has the correct address, but incorrect county of residence. Is that enough to get the ticket thrown out? Ticket was given in Baltimore County, residence is Howard County, ticket ...
No, this will not make a difference. They just need to charge you in the county where the offense occurred.
You should still request a trial and not a waiver hearing within 30 days of the ticket. If the police officer does not appear, you will be acquitted. Even if you are convicted, the judge can offer you probation before judgment which avoids the conviction and the points.See question
I got pulled over for a break light out and the officer approached the vehicle and told me about a break light out. By the way the vehicle isn't mine, but the owner was in the vehicle with me . Shortly after another officer showed up and said he s...
You can still be charged legally, but in my opinion it is unlikely that charges will be filed against you if you were not arrested. You can check Maryland Judiciary Case Search periodically to see if charges have been filed.See question
I was given a criminal charge for electronic mail harassment and was given 3yrs probation as a result. I was under the impression that when I finished my probation that the charge would be reduced, but my probation officer told me I would have to ...
If you were convicted and did not receive probation before judgment, then you would need to have filed a Motion to Modify or Reduce the Sentence within 90 days of the your conviction. The judge could hold it sub curia until some time has gone by. If you or your attorney filed such a motion, you could ask that the case set for hearing and you should have a good chance of a PBJ if you have complied with all terms and conditions of probation and you have no prior record.
Otherwise, it is too late for the conviction to be stricken and the PBJ to be entered.See question
When you go to court for driving with suspended license can the judge find out you have had the same repeated offenses?
Yes, the judge will have a computer on his desk and can see all convictions and probations before judgment in all 50 states. The State's Attorney can also point out your record to the judge.See question
When does a probation officer find out about a new charge?
The probation officer periodically checks your record and always checks at the end of the probationary period. They are also notified if you are convicted of a crime or receive probation before judgment. A standard condition of probation is to notify your probation officer of any new charges and the failure to do so could violate your probation.See question

You can be charged with driving under the influence of drugs even if it is prescription medication. If you have been charged with such an offense, you need an attorney to represent you. There may be defenses available. If you cannot afford a private attorney, you should contact the Public Defender as soon as possible and no later than 10 business days before the court date.See question
I was driving early morning (~1:30am), I was approaching an intersection where my light was flashing red. As I approached and began to break so did two other cars at different crossroads. No one was moving, so I came down to roughly 5-6mph and dr...
You will have to wait to see if you receive a ticket. If you do, you can request a trial by following the instructions. However, you are supposed to come to a complete stop at a flashing red light so your explanation would not be a defense. You could tell the judge about your financial situation if you go to court.See question
500$ judgement now it says court date on the 12/15\ thr store recieved their property but the officer filed a complaint also i have a warrant for bond infrac turning myself in today but what should i do with this case its my first charge.
Your question requires more information. If you have been charged with theft, it should be for theft between $100.00 and $1,000.00 unless it happened many years ago. You should speak with an attorney before turning yourself in or at least have someone prepared to post bond.
In addition, the store can sue you civilly for up to two times the amount of the item under a Maryland statute. Stores rarely sue for the money, but it is possible they sued you.
You should consult with an attorney to determine the best course of action. Most first time offenders do not go to jail and an attorney should be able to keep the conviction off your record.See question
I was reassured that after doing 16 hours of community service that it will be dropped off my record and the school will not find out. I want to be a lawyer and my major is screened so I cannot have anything on my record. If the school finds out, ...
First, Baltimore County has a diversion program for first time offenders. You will get a letter in the mail with details. If you do not receive it, contact an attorney to discuss how to get into the program. You will do 16 hours of community service and then the charge will be dropped and you can get your record expunged.
Unfortunately, the officer will probably notify the school and they will make you write the paper and pay a fine. They usually do notify the school under these circumstances, but you never know.See question
