Serious Traffic Cases
There are two types of traffic offenses in Maryland: incarcerable and non-incarcerable offenses. Incarcerable offenses can be punished with jail time, while non-incarcerable offenses (like most speeding violations) typically carry hefty fines and other penalties (like points on your license). View a list of the points each charge may carry on your license.
Some of the most common offenses include:
- Driving with a suspended (or revoked) license
- Vehicular Manslaughter
- Negligent Driving
- Reckless Driving
- Leaving the Scene of an Accident (hit and run)
- Fraudulent use of a license
If you are accused of a serious traffic offense, you must appear in court, even if you intend to pay the fine and plead guilty. Prosecutors are cunning and will do whatever it takes to convince a judge and/or jury that you are guilty of a serious traffic offense, and defense of these charges in Maryland is no easy task.
It is in your best interest to hire an experienced criminal attorney to defend you on serious traffic charges because conviction could result in increased insurance rates, points on your license, revocation of your license, or jail time.
