When a Maryland resident is charged with a violent crime, a number of problems arise immediately. In the initial hours, the person who stands accused must make an attempt to secure his or her release from jail. Then comes an urgent need to secure the proper legal counsel, which can be a challenge for someone who has no knowledge of legal services or the overall defense process. In addition, when an assault or other violent crime is alleged, the media often picks up the story, and publishes the name and sometimes the photo of the accused individual.
An arrest for crime can be for an offense that the police did not contemplate when they first started the investigation. In this case, Maryland authorities were investigating pot-laced cookies at a Baltimore private high school. The zeroed on a school employee but couldn't connect him to the offense. When they went to his house looking for marijuana they found instead a handgun laying in the open on the man's fireplace mantle. They nabbed him on criminal charges but not for illicit drugged-up cookies; instead, they arrested the 40-year-old Baltimore resident for being a felon in possession of a handgun, according to police.

Sometimes the events surrounding an arrest have to be carefully reviewed to determine what was really taking place. That seems to be something to keep in mind in connection with a Maryland arrest that occurred in Silver Spring in the early morning hours recently. Police report that three men were walking on Piney Branch Road in Silver Spring. They say that an officer witnessed two of the men start assaulting and robbing the other man. The officer approached and eventually subdued and arrested the two men on criminal charges of attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, second degree assault, and conspiracy to commit second degree assault.
When the average American citizen thinks of violent crimes, he or she may not think robbery would fit into this category. However, robbery, particularly armed robbery, is conducted by threatening the well being of the victim. Even if the robber does not use a real weapon, if the victim believes the weapon to be real at the time of the crime, it is still called robbery even if the robber did not really intend to harm the victim. A Maryland man has been arrested and is facing two criminal charges of robbery for using a toy gun to rob area motels.
