How Are Jurors Selected?

If you face a serious criminal charge that warrants a trial, you might want to know about the jury and how members will be chosen.

What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?

Crimes generally fall into three categories: infractions, misdemeanors and felonies. Infractions, including parking violations, are the most minor crimes and are generally result in a ticket or fine. These generally don't carry the possibility of a jail sentence, though they can become serious matters if the fine goes unpaid. More serious crimes fall under the categories of misdemeanors and felonies. It's important for Maryland residents who have been accused of crimes to understand the distinction between the two.
