Commercial drivers have strict blood alcohol concentration limits

Commercial drivers are held to different standards than other drivers. One area where this is true is drunk driving laws. For noncommercial drivers, the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for driving is .08%. For commercial drivers, that standard is much lower at only .04%. The reason for this is because commercial vehicles are much larger and much heavier than regular personal vehicles. This means that they are a much bigger hazard for others on the road, as well as pedestrians.

Anger management courses might be part of probation or parole

For people on parole or probation for certain crimes, completing anger management classes are part of the requirements they have to meet. These courses can be very helpful in teaching you ways to spot the fact that you are getting too angry and finding the tools that will help you to calm down. The goal of this is to help you better cope with the anger so that you don't find yourself facing criminal charges again.

Choose a domestic violence defense very carefully

Domestic violence accusations can come from a variety of situations. Not all of these are factual. There are instances in which people might make up stories or twist facts to try to get another person in trouble. False domestic violence accusations are a serious issue because they can have such a negative impact on the accused person's life.

Marijuana charges can still occur in Maryland

Marijuana is partially decriminalized in Maryland. However, this doesn't mean that there is now carte blanche when it comes to this drug. The decriminalization impacts possession charges; however, it doesn't cover higher quantities of drugs. The laws don't also protect people who are selling this drug.
