Legal Answers
242 Questions Answered
Q. Statute Code:TA.21.1124.1.B does that brings points to DL in MD?
A: This is a 1 point ticket unless there was an accident in which case it is a 3 point ticket. Your post indicates it was not an accident so it should be 1 point. Do not pay it. Request a trial (not a waiver hearing) and go to court. If the police officer does not appear, you will be acquitted. If the police officer appears and you are convicted, the judge can offer probation before judgment which avoids the point.
Q. Does the police have the right to search my sons stroller without my consent?
A: The "plain view" doctrine states that a police officer can search the stroller in your case if the gun is in plain view. If it is not plain view, it may be an illegal search and seizure if neither you nor your boyfriend gave permission to search the stroller and the police officer did not have other grounds to search the stroller. If the officer was able to see the gun even if it is a small part of the gun, he can search the stroller. You will need to retain counsel to represent you or go to the Public Defender. They can discuss your defenses in a confidential setting.
Q. How do I get out of a subpoena? I feel like I am being forced to talk against someone I did not press charges on.
A: This is not a sufficient reason to get out of a subpoena. If you have been subpoenaed to court, you must appear. If you do not appear, the police could come and bring you to court or you could be found in contempt. This does not happen in every single case, but it could happen here. The fact that you did not file the charges does not excuse you from the subpoena.
