Under Maryland law, a person commits assault when he or she causes or attempts to cause personal injury to another individual. This offense can be classified as either classified as first-degree assault or second-degree assault. In either type of situation, an assault conviction can lead to a lengthy prison term. In addition to basic assault, the law also prohibits assault with a firearm. Anyone accused of this serious crime should immediately seek legal representation.

Drug Charges

There are many different types of drug crimes a person can be charged with, including drug possession, possession with intent to distribute and drug manufacturing, among other offenses. The severity of a drug charge and its potential sentence upon conviction depends on the specific circumstances related to the alleged crime. Some of these circumstances include the type of offense involved, the type of drug, the drug amount and whether the defendant has any previous drug convictions.

Theft Crimes

A person commits theft when he or she takes control over someone else's property or services without authorization, and generally with the intention of depriving that owner of what belongs to him or her. The penalties provided for theft depend on the value of the stolen property or services, as well as on various other factors. In addition to general theft, other theft crimes include burglary, robbery and motor vehicle theft.

Weapons Charges

When individuals possess, carry or transport weapons, they are required to do so in compliance with state and federal laws. Individuals can be charged with crimes when they are accused of violating these laws. For example, a person might be arrested for possessing weapons that are banned in the state, for unlawfully transporting a firearm or for possessing a firearm without the proper license. Weapons charges can stem from all types of weapons, such as handguns, assault pistols and knives.
