Illegal weapon possession in Maryland cannot only pose serious consequences for a resident's image but it can also wreak havoc on nearly every aspect of the accused's life. If convicted, the state of Maryland has some stringent laws against felons who possess firearms. Likewise, federal law imposes harsh penalties on people who are convicted of gun crimes.

Suspect with criminal record charged with robbery

A 51-year-old suspect with a lengthy criminal history was taken into custody in Baltimore recently after he was accused of robbing victims of cash. He faces several charges, including assault and robbery of two workers at a local medical facility and other crimes. He was held with no bail. Law enforcement personnel are still looking over security camera footage as the crime may be connected to another robbery. The suspect's wife insisted he has been set up by law enforcement personnel as she claims that he was at a court-ordered substance abuse program when the crimes at the hospital occurred. She believes he is being accused for the crime because of his criminal background. Personnel at the drug treatment program were unavailable to confirm or deny his presence at the time of the crimes.
