Bonnie and Clyde, You Ain’t

By |March 22nd, 2017|Theft Defense|0 Comments

There’s a weird sort of appeal for criminals, isn’t there? We love movies and shows about mobsters. We spend millions watching Johnny Depp get all creeped-out to play Whitey Bulger. We romanticize the old gangsters, like Capone and Dillinger, and the Academy gave Denzel an Oscar for playing a crooked cop. Cops and robbers might [...]

Annapolis Lawmakers Want to Revise Maryland’s Rape Laws

By |March 13th, 2017|Criminal Defense|0 Comments

Last year, Buzzfeed broke a story about how Baltimore County Police dismissed rape cases as “unfounded” 34% of the time. Then The Baltimore Sun started poking around, and they found that there are thousands of untested rape kits at police stations throughout the state. So, over the last few months, legislators have started taking a [...]

I’d Like Some Fries, Extra Crispy, and a Side of 1-5 in Prison, Please

By |March 8th, 2017|Criminal Defense|0 Comments

This is either the silliest story I’ve ever read, or the greatest marketing scheme in Burger King history: you decide. Long story short: two people are accused of selling pot out of the drive-thru window of a Burger King in New Hampshire. Allegedly, Garrett Norris (A.K.A. “Nasty Boy”) set up his own little pot shop [...]

Can You Be Price Gouged by Your Weed Dealer? (Spoiler: No.)

By |March 1st, 2017|Criminal Defense|0 Comments

Sometimes you just hear a story that you can’t really believe, you know? For us, it was a story about a woman in Australia who apparently thought her weed dealer was ripping her off – and she called the cops on him. According to the Northern Territory Police, Fire and Emergency Services’ Facebook page (and [...]

DUI DWI Checkpoints: Know Your Rights

By |February 21st, 2017|DUI|0 Comments

We’ve all been there; you’re on your way home a restaurant or bar and, suddenly, traffic slows. A long line of cars ends in flashing lights and cones. Officers are directing traffic and moving some cars off to the side. It’s not an accident; it’s a DUI checkpoint. For those who haven’t been drinking, it’s [...]

Superhero “Good Deeds” That Would Land a Normal Person in Jail

By |February 15th, 2017|Criminal Defense|0 Comments

The saying goes that life imitates art far more often than art imitates life, and nowhere is that more apparent than in our favorite films. All those superhero flicks and larger-than-life characters require a little suspension of disbelief, but the ground rules of society stay more or less the same no matter how super our [...]

Musings of a Criminal Defense Lawyer Upon Watching APB on Fox

By |February 8th, 2017|Criminal Defense|0 Comments

I had no idea you could stop an oil fire with dynamite. He probably should have given those buyers some warning before detonating that drone. Seriously – how good is this guy’s eyesight that he knew he could buy smokes at a shop about 5 blocks away from where he was? Or maybe he’s bought [...]

Keep Your Pants On: Since When Is Leaving The Curtains Open “Indecent Exposure”?
