Now that summer is fast approaching you will begin to see more sobriety checkpoints throughout Clinton and the rest of Maryland. Law enforcement officials will do their best to remove drunk drivers from the roads in an effort to make it safer for everyone else traveling to work, school or for vacation. Here's what to expect at a DUI checkpoint so you can be prepared.
Both Maryland state and federal laws define abduction, a crime more commonly referred to as kidnapping, simlarly. It is described as being the involuntary removal of an individual from one place to a different one. In order to prove that someone was abducted, the person must have been taken and hidden for an illicit purpose whether it so additional crimes can be committed against them or for extortion.
During the first few months of 2018, Maryland State Police (MSP) increased their presence along the Prince George's County portion of U.S. Route 301. They hoped that by tripling of their presence along that stretch of the highway, they would see a reduction in the number of collisions resulting in either injuries or deaths in the area.
