Protect your rights as you fight against drug charges

As we discussed last week, there are certain freedoms that are removed when you have a felony drug conviction on your record.

We know how stressful that can be.

Take immediate action if you are accused of domestic violence

Anyone can be accused of domestic violence. In last week's blog post, we discussed that women can sometimes be accused of domestic violence. Anyone, male or female, who is accused of domestic violence should take steps right away to protect their reputation. This involves fighting against the charges.

Woomen can face domestic violence charges, too

People who think of domestic violence cases might not realize that men aren't the only people who have to face domestic violence charges. There are some women who have to face those charges. For women, the consequences of a domestic violence charge can be serious. With that in mind, it is important for women to understand the behaviors that might lead to them being accused of domestic violence because not all of them involve hitting or other physical contact. In fact, many of them are simply about controlling the man.

A recent two-month investigation looking into prescription drug fraud has ended with a woman facing hundreds of charges related to prescription drugs.

Marijuana drug charges can have serious consequences

We have often discussed cases involving drug charges. While some people might have a tendency to think that some drug crimes are worse than others, that isn't necessarily the case.

Man denied bail in Maryland, extensive criminal history presented

For some people, what they have done in the past has a way of coming back to them at a time when they least expect it.

For one Maryland man, an extensive criminal history seems to have played a part in a recent court hearing. That court hearing has resulted in him being held without bail.

Drug charges filed based on package mailed to a Maryland address

When most people think about someone being busted for drugs, they think of police raiding a home or drugs being found during a traffic stop.

In the case of a St. Mary's County man, a package being delivered via the United States Postal Service is what landed him behind bars.
