Gun and drug possession charges reduced to open container citation

A recent traffic stop in Perryville, Maryland resulted in citations and charges being filed against a client of ours for possession of a handgun in a vehicle, possession of an unregistered handgun, among other drug related charges for suspected contraband found following a search of the vehicle.

Working with the State’s Attorney regarding a number of defenses to some of these charges, as well as some other issues with the stop, we resolve this matter down from what could have been some substantial jail time for for my client to a simple payable non-criminal citation for an open alcohol container in the passenger compartment of a vehicle.

If you’re facing similar charges, or anything that arises out of a Cecil County vehicle stop or search subsequent a stop, contact our office at 410-885-6200 to discuss possible defenses that may be available to you.
