Man charged in Maryland sex offenses faces hefty bond

For Maryland residents who are confronted with allegations of having committed felonies, there are many issues that will have to be dealt with. Not only is there the possibility of being convicted and having to pay significant fines and go to jail, but there are also social stigmas attached. Those stigmas are exponentially worse when the charges are for sexual offenses.

Is a DUI different from a DWI?

Many people may use the terms DUI and DWI interchangeably, thinking that they both mean the same thing-driving after consuming alcohol. However, the two terms are not the same and when it comes to motor vehicle offenses, the difference between the two may be the difference between a lighter and a harsher sentence.

Helping criminal defendants fight charges in Maryland

Maryland residents may think that since someone has been charged with a crime they are indeed guilty of committing it. However, this is not always the case, and it is this very perception that causes a permanent stain on the reputation of someone facing criminal charges. The truth of the matter is that everyone who is charged with a crime is entitled to defend themselves against the charges and clear their name to the best of their ability.

Maryland man charged with drug and firearm violations

Drug charges can absolutely alter the course of a person's life. Not only are there monetary penalties and incarceration to consider -- fines can cost thousands of dollars and prison time can be years, if not decades -- but also a person's professional and personal reputation is at stake. Finding a job after being found guilty of a drug crime can prove immensely difficult. Plus, personal relationships may forever change for the worse. This is why it is of the utmost importance for anyone facing such charges to consider fighting them vigorously.
