A criminal proceeding in Maryland is initiated with the filing of information or a grand jury indictment by the State's Attorney's Office. Subsequently, the defendant is notified about the same and is ordered to appear in the court on a specific date. In some cases, a warrant may also be issued to keep the defendant in custody.
