Mr. Scherr and mr. Rombro are correct. If you were in fact charged, you do need a lawyer. The possibility of jail, points on your driving record and license suspension/restriction are real and should not be taken lightly.See question
My husband received his fourth DUI (previous instances are in 2002, 2006, and 2009). He has had PBJ and monitoring only before... no jail time. This time around, he has realized he has a problem, has been going to AA at least once a day, is star...
The most important thing right now is to either retain a competent DUI attorney. If that i out of reach, apply to the office of the public defender, not less than ten working days before court. But don't wait. The charges are serious, and the issues are not just what he should say to the judge. He needs an attorney, and a commitment to sobriety.See question
FL took my license. I was convicted. I did my probation and paid all the fines. I couldn't drive for 12 months because they took my license. I have been done with all of this since March 2016.
As the other attorney's have said, you likely have a two state process that you may have to clear. Any time there are two states involved it is more complicated. Maryland will not reinstate you until Florida does. Even when you are cleared there, it is certainly likely that MVA will propose either a suspension or revocation of your driving privilege. They will give you notice of their intent to do so, you can request a hearing to contest the action - do so. If it is too late , the process becomes more complex. Retain an attorney to review the specifics of your case and guide you through the process.See question
I saw online I got charged with felony theft and I don't know if I'm not at the address they come to pick me up at if they will just send a court date, I'm not sure if they will keep looking or just expect me to show up on my court date
Attorney Welsh is correct. In fact since the case shows up online, is most probably is a summons, not a warrant. Now is the time to discuss this matter in a private setting with an attorney.See question
My husband was pulled over for a DUI in March 2016. His trial was just this week (8/23/16). He was sentenced with a DWI, 1 yr. probation, and 1 weekend in jail. He was pulled over back in 2009 and was given a PBJ. If the lookback period for Maryla...
As others have said, there is no "look back period" after which DUIDWI is
Considered a 1st. He definitely needs an attorney; file for a public defender if he can not afford a private attorney, but don't go it alone. A PD can not. Assist with the MVA consequences .
I was convicted of operating while intoxicated (first offense) in Michigan. My BAC was 0.19. I pled to OWI 1st which is a reduced charge comparing to the original charge of high BAC. But I have a Maryland driver license. I was wonder how my driver...
Atty Scherr is correct. However, depending upon how the out of state charge is reported to theMVA they may propose to revoke your license - be on the lookout for the notice from MVA. You will be given the option of requesting a hearing or opting into the interlock programSee question
Served and completed an 18months probation in a PBJ entered judgment last year. i filed for early expungement because of severe hardship as a result of in ability renew my CNA license which was granted and the state attorney now sent a motion ...
As Attorney Scherr stated, unfortunately a DUI or DWI in Maryland can not be expunged. If it was for a different charge the you should consult with an attorney because the State's motion will set up a contested hearing.See question
I am being told I could technically be charged for possession of cocaine when I had no contraband on me. Police had told me that they " had evidence" of the contraband, but I have yet to see this "evidence" Is there anything I can do. Please help.
As others have said, do not post any additional facts here as this is a public website. Seek a private consultation with an attorney - many of us offer free consultations.See question
If I seek and accept a Probation Before Judgement how will that affect my security clearance. I have a charge for second degree assault.
I represent a significant number of clients with security clearance issues. Although a PBJ is not a conviction under MARYLAND law, that is virtually irrelevant security clearance wise. I do not practice specifically i that area, but in my previous career I was very much involved. Although I am familiar with the issues, I always refer out the security clearance side to attorneys who either limit their practice to that area, or do a significant amount of practice. It is critical that you speak with an attorney who has an active practice with that area. The nature of the charge, the specific facts, how a person defends it, whether there is probation, etc are areas that must be handled correctly. All is not lost, but address it with proper advice.See question
