What happens after I am charged with a crime in Baltimore County, Maryland?
If you are arrested, you will be taken to the police precinct for the area in which you are arrested. The police (Baltimore County, Maryland State Police, Department of Natural Resources, Maryland Transportation Authority, etc.) will begin the booking process where they will collect information about you and the alleged crime. The police do have the option of asking you questions at the scene or back at the police precinct. You do not have to answer any of the police’s questions and instead can invoke your right to remain silent. The more you tell the police, the more evidence they will have at trial to use against you. Once the police have completed the booking and questioning, they may take you before a court commissioner to have the charges reviewed and a bail/bond set. If the commissioner sets a bail/bond, then you have the option of posting that bail/bond at that time or they police will transport you to the local detention center to await a bail review hearing. Most bail review hearings will occur the next day unless you are arrested on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, then the bail review will occur the following Monday. If you do not post the bail/bond, then you will be held at the detention center until the trial date is set. If you are charged with a misdemeanor then your case will be heard in one of the District Courts. If you are charged with a felony, your case will be heard in the Circuit Court.
What happens after I am charged with a felony in Baltimore County, Maryland?
If you have been charged with a felony, then you have 10 days after you have seen the court commissioner to request a preliminary hearing. If you would like to request a preliminary hearing, contact the Law Offices of G. Randolph Rice, Jr., LLC at (410) 288-2900 to complete the process.
If you or an attorney requests a preliminary hearing, then a date will be set in the District Court to have a Judge decide if there is probable cause to move forward with all or some of the charges. The State’s Attorney’s Office will review your case and they may allow the preliminary hearing to occur, at which time they may reduce the charges down to misdemeanors or they may have a hearing for the Judge to decide if there is probable cause to move forward with the felony charges.
The State’s Attorney also has the option of “pulling” the case from the preliminary hearing track and taking it before a Grand Jury to determine if there is probable cause to move forward. The individual charged does not have the ability to stop the State’s Attorney from taking the case before the Grand Jury. If the charged individual does not request a preliminary hearing, the State’s Attorney could also file a criminal information and have the case transferred to the Circuit Court to be prosecuted. The Grand Jury is secret, the Defendant and the Defendant’s attorney do not have a right to appear for that hearing.
