Protecting your rights after serious accusations in Maryland

If you live in Prince Georges County, Maryland, and you have been accused of a serious crime, you need to make sure that your rights are upheld. Two of the biggest ones are simply your right to a fair trial and your right to proper legal representation. Remember, these charges could have a huge impact on the rest of your life, so this is nothing to take lightly. Serious felony accusations could include things like:

'Crazy Eddie' mastermind helps prosecution with criminal charges

When you think of white collar crime, your first thought may go to the infamous Bernie Madoff, an investment broker and stock trader who was convicted back in 2001 for what is considered the largest Ponzi scheme in United States history. Madoff reportedly bilked billions of dollars from his clients in an elaborate financial con and was eventually sentenced to 150 years in prison after he was convicted.

What you should know about drug distribution charges

Although you may think that you will only face a misdemeanor charge if you are caught with drugs in your possession, you could quickly see those charges increased to drug distribution if you are in possession of a large amount of drugs at the time of your arrest. Even if you are caught with only a small amount of drugs initially, but have a large amount of cash on your person or at the scene, you could find yourself facing felony charges of drug distribution instead of a misdemeanor.

The differences between pyramid and Ponzi schemes

Pyramid and Ponzi schemes are two types of investment fraud. They are both similar in that they often promise investors a way to make money, but in reality, these schemes involve paying members who have been participating the longest with the money that is brought in by new investors. Both Ponzi and pyramid schemes are illegal and are generally considered to be white collar crimes.
