Maryland county representative faces DWI charges

Although everyone has a constitutional right to present a defense in a court of law upon being accused of committing a crime, many people often overlook this fact and assume that just because charges have been filed against someone, they must be guilty. This means that mere accusations can have a severe impact on a person's entire life, from their jobs and professional relationships to their personal lives. An arrest and charges, even if later proven false, can cause severe consequences.

Fighting felony charges with expertise and experience

Conspiracy charges, as discussed last week, can stem from either white-collar charges or from felonies such as homicide and murder charges. Those accused of murder in Maryland should take these charges very seriously and work diligently to present their side to the legal system. Though many tend to forget it, everyone is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and everyone has the right to have their day in court which they can choose to avail.

What is a conspiracy?

Many people in Maryland may not be aware that, when two or more people come together to commit a crime, they can be charged with conspiring to commit the crime, in addition to being charged with actually committing the crime. This means that conspiracy charges carry a penalty of their own and can be imposed even when no one has actually committed a criminal act.

Illegal gun possession penalties in Maryland

Though people across the country have the right to bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, they may not be aware that there are certain laws that regulate gun possession for public safety. In Maryland, both federal and state laws interact to try to balance the interests of arms owners against those of people who are concerned with safety.
