You are entitled to procedural due process throughout the entire investigation and trial experience. Due process is a right protected by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution. In these amendments, it says that the federal government cannot deprive its citizens of “life, liberty or property without due process of law.” Central to this promise is the fact that all levels of American government must operate within the law to not only charge a person with a crime, but also investigate that crime. Retaining an attorney if you are under investigation for or charged with a crime can ensure you receive not only a fair trial, but a fair investigative process as well.
If you or someone important to you is under investigation for or charged with a crime, contact the office of Andy Jaskulsky today to discuss your case.
Have You Been Charged with a Traffic Violation or DUI?
Many people do not think about traffic infractions as a criminal proceeding, but traffic violations are, in fact, charges that can be defended with the help of criminal defense attorney Andy Jaskulsky.
Traffic violations are typically divided into moving violations and non-moving violations. Non-moving violations are typically parking violations. Moving violations include:
While many moving violations are considered infractions, more serious violations may be classified as misdemeanors with potential jail time and high fines or felonies.
What is the difference between DUI and DWI in Maryland?
In Maryland, DUI, or Driving Under the Influence, is the greater of the two charges and is used to describe anyone with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. If a person is convicted for DUI, he or she can face one year in jail, a $1,000 fine and a 120 day license suspension. However, if a driver is found to have a blood alcohol content of .04 to .079, he or she can be charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). This conviction carries with it a maximum of 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.
A new Driving Under the Influence (DUI) law took effect on October 1, 2016. The Drunk Driving Reduction Act of 2016, also known as Noah’s Law, states that if you have been convicted of DUI or DWi while transporting a minor under the age of 16, or homicide or life-threatening injury by motor vehicle while DUI or DWI, you are required to participate in Maryland’s Ignition Interlock Program. This program involves having a device installed in the ignition of your vehicle that prevents it from starting if there is a certain amount of alcohol on your breath.
If you have been charged with DUI or DWI or if you have been charged with a moving violation, Andy Jaskulsky can help.
