I agree with Mr. Scherr. Either pay the ticket as written, or request a trial (not a waiver hearing; that's the same as pleading guilty, athough you can still request a reduction of the fine). Paying the fine results in a conviction of the offense, which will appear on your driving record....View More

I am aware of no statute of limitations that would be as long as 23 years. In Maryland the SOL is three years. For a contract “under seal” like your promissory note, the SOL is extended to 12 years. However, Maryland law on this issue will not apply if the lender was in NH and the borrower...View More

Possibly. More likely to suppress the evidence if the car belonged to the young man than if he was a mere passenger. It depends on more facts than you’ve provided, and the inference that all passengers in car equally possessed the evidence found in it is a potentially very weak one—also partly...View More

Former Article 27, Section 286 has been recodified under Criminal Code 5-602. Both a misdemeanor...View More

The young man’s lawyer should decide on whether a bill of particulars is necessary or appropriate. Once discovery (evidence) from the prosecutor’s case is provided, it can be reviewed and then a bill of particulars drafted to address the gaps in the State’s case.

Forgetting to put the sticker on your plate is not a defense to the charge, which is displaying expired tags. Emphasis on “displaying”. The ticket carries no points and is not a moving violation, so it will have zero impact on your insurance rates. In other words, paying the fine has no...View More
