There are really three possible results in criminal cases: guilty, not guilty and not proven. The essence of criminal trial work is to be sure that the State has not violated your constitutional rights and to be sure they have followed their own protocol and procedures regarding investigation and obtaining evidence. It is not necessarily about guilt or innocence. It is about making the State prove each and every element of its case beyond a reasonable doubt. They gotta prove it.

A comprehensive interview with you and a review of the charging documents and facts must be conducted by a criminal lawyer in Maryland. Time is of the essence.
