My friend was recently arrested Friday night. We are in Maryland. Assault 1st degree, Assult second degree, illegal possession of ammo, FIREARM USE/FEL-VIOL CRIME, RFL/SHOTGN POSS-DISQUAL, RIFLE/SHOT-POSS W/FEL CONV
These are all very serious charges. For example, first degree assault carries up to 25 years and second degree assault carries up to 10 years. None of us can tell you what will happen to your friend because we do not know anything about his case. He obviously needs a lawyer.
