The Maryland legislature did quite an amazing thing last year. A law was passed that allows people with Assault Second Degree convictions in Maryland to get their convictions expunged. Mirriam and I have complained often that too many people plead guilty to assault in the second degree in Maryland. What people do not realize is that pleading to this crime can wreak havoc on future economic opportunity. Also, a conviction for assault second degree is also considered a federal felony! You cannot possess a firearm with this conviction.
The new statute for expunging these convictions has some specific requirements before an expungement can be considered. The conviction has to be of a certain age and also the person must have successfully completed their sentence.
We are already helping people get their older convictions expunged. If you would like to hire us, feel free to give us a call at 301.513.7832.
