Legal Answers
79 Questions Answered

Q. I’ve been subpoenaed to testify against my child's father for 2nd degree assault but I don want too what should I do
A: Who subpoena’d you? The State’s Attorney’s Office or defense. Tell State’s Attorney’s Office if it is them that you don’t wish to testify.
Q. Where would I begin looking for an attorney for grandson who is a criminal defendant with mental health issues?
A: We handle these issues and you can call us at 410 244-5068. The initial consult is free.
Q. Can a person who previously had a ncr conviction for first degree murder become a gun dealer
A: I would really have to look that up. I would normally say no way except that an NCR and a finding of mental fitness subsequently would seem to allow that. I will try to get back on this one. This feels like a law school exam question.
Q. Can the State be sued for releasing someone who murdered previously and then murdered again 2 months after release?
A: No. The courts and parole board make those decisions and both are immune from suit unless the release was due to negligent error. Then you might be able to sue the state.
Q. My bf is charged with first degree murder , first & second degree assault, &with deadly weapon will he come home
A: Doubtful. Unlikely he gets a bail on that. But he clearly needs counsel as soon as possible. Call or have someone call our office if he doesn't already have private counsel and can afford through his family to pay for private counsel. Consult is free. (410) 244-5068
Q. Can i sue if a police they lock me up for a burglary i didnt commit and mistake me for the guy who did it .
A: Possibly. Depends when the incident occurred --- must generally be within 1 year to fulfill notice requirements -- and there would have to be some degree of damages. Deprivation of liberty could be part of that.
Q. What crimes would be charged against a subject for self defense of their home or property?
A: Almost anything. Maryland generally DOES NOT allow use of deadly force to defend against property. The gray area is that Maryland does allow citizens to make an arrest when warranted and that the castle doctrine means you ARE allowed to defend yourself within your home using reasonable force and deadly force only if it passes the specific test on use including "reasonable" fear of threat to health or safety.
Q. My son lives in MD and currently has three outstanding FTA warrants. He was in VA and Stafford County police picked him
A: Means he could be extradited into MD. He should hire both VA and MD counsel. MD counsel such as myself can help with the cases in MD where he Failed to Appear for court. It means he skipped or couldn't make 2 court dates and the judge set in warrants for both. Not sure what "fugitive without warrant" means. Might be a VA term.
Q. My son is currently serving 18 months for theft under $1000. He is now being charged for vagabond theft under $1000.
A: Depending on if he's convicted and whether any part of the prior sentence included probation and backup time.
