Criminal Defense Lawyer

The criminal justice system in Maryland affects nearly every individual at some point in his or her lifetime. Contact with the system ranges from a mere traffic ticket to incarcerable offenses. In Maryland, a crime is any behavior that is punishable by incarceration or fine or both. The legislature determines which acts are considered criminal and then these acts are divided into two categories, namely felonies and misdemeanors. This division is based on the potential punishment. If the act is punishable only by a fine, such as a parking ticket, it is usually not considered a crime.

To be charged with a crime is to be formally accused of that crime. Police officers begin the charging process with an arrest or a citation. The police then send copies of their reports to the State’s Attorney, who then decides what charges, if any should be filed. The State’s Attorney is permitted to examine all circumstances of the case, including the suspect’s past criminal record, when determining whether charges should be filed.

The most important aspect of criminal law to remember that the burden of proving a crime is on the prosecution. Therefore, if you are charged with a crime, you do not have to prove your innocence, although it sometimes seems as if that is the case. To find out more information about a specific crime, please contact us.
