Yes. Generally, a judge can preside over two cases, where one is criminal and the other DHS.

1 Answer | Asked in Tax Law, Business Law and White Collar Crime for Maryland on
Answered on Feb 28, 2018
Mark Oakley's answer
Criminal or civil fraud requires knowledge of the fraud and intentional conduct to perpetrate the fraud, so honest mistake is a complete defense. Stop worrying. Hire a CPA to review your past returns and file any corrected or amended returns for the affected years, as necessary. Any penalties or late fees can be paid or negotiated through your CPA. If you overpaid taxes or mistakenly paid taxes to the wrong taxing authority, you can request a refund, but you may be limited to the past three...

Samuel G McKerall's answer
I'm sure you can find an attorney who will consider taking your case, if you look hard enough and if your case has merit. An attorney can sue the accounting firm, the trustee and the trust attorney. He or she cannot file criminal charges, or even threaten to file criminal charges, and cannot sue the E&O carrier. If a person or company with E&O insurance is sued, they contact their E&O carrier, who may or may not step in and defend.
