Maryland Montgomery County Possession Cocaine Suspension Misconduct Probation Lawyers Attorney

ATTORNEY GRIEVANCE COMMISSION OF MARYLAND v. BRUCE SCOTT GILBERT
COURT OF APPEALS OF MARYLAND
October 12, 1999, Filed

The attorney Grievance Commission of Maryland, the petitioner, by Bar Counsel, acting pursuant to Maryland Rule 16-709, filed a Petition for Disciplinary Action against Bruce Scott Gilbert, the respondent, alleging that he did engage in misconduct and charging violation of Rule 8.4 (b) and (d) of the Maryland Lawyers’ Rules of Professional Conduct. The Petition was referred, pursuant to Maryland Rule 16- 711(a), for hearing and to make finding of fact and conclusions of law. Following which the court concluded that “the Respondent engaged in criminal conduct involving the possession of cocaine in violation of Article 27, 287 of the Annotated Code of Maryland and that such conduct constitutes a violation of [Rule 8.4] of the Rules of Professional Conduct.” The conduct on which the conclusion was based is, as the court found, the petitioner’s plea of guilty to a charge of possession of crack cocaine, for which he was sentenced to a four year term of imprisonment, which was suspended in favor of three years of unsupervised probation with special conditions that he be monitored and abstain from the use of alcohol. Respondent appealed from the order.

Issue:
Whether appropriate sanction has been imposed on the defendant for conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice?

Discussion:
This court held that although it was not the defendants first contact with the criminal justice system as a defendant, this is the respondent’s first disciplinary proceeding. Moreover, so far as the record reveals, and certainly the petitioner has not alleged otherwise, this misconduct was not directly related to the practice of law. Furthermore, the respondent has made efforts to rehabilitate himself and to overcome his addiction. Under these circumstances, it is believed that the appropriate sanction to be imposed is suspension from the practice of law for thirty days. Upon his reinstatement, the petitioner shall be monitored by Richard Vincent, the Director of the Lawyer Counseling Service of the Maryland State Bar Association, who will submit reports to Bar Counsel on a schedule to be determined by Bar Counsel, and the petitioner shall participate in such rehabilitative activities as Mr. Vincent shall prescribe.

Conclusion:
This court hence affirms the order and suspends respondent from the practice of law for 30 days because this was the respondent’s first disciplinary proceeding, the misconduct was not directly related to the practice of law, and the respondent had made efforts to rehabilitate himself and overcome his addiction.

Southern Maryland, where History Comes Alive.

Article by John Pelley

Southern Maryland lays East and South of Washington, DC. We had heard of an Amish community located in East Charles County. Of course, the first order of business was to find their bulk store. Unless you are part of the community or among the cognoscenti, you will never find it. There are no signs designating such a store. Even when we stopped at the library, less than three miles from the store, we were astounded by the lack of knowledge of the librarians. They, however, asked a young Amish gentleman standing at the copy machine and he gave the directions. The store is on Glock Road, off of Rte 6. We went by it by a couple of miles and had to backtrack. Glock Road is paved for twenty feet and then turns into a single lane dirt lane, which leads to a farm. Unless there is a razor wire topped fence or concrete barriers, or sentries with ferocious guard dogs, I go in where angels fear to tread. In the yard were a man and woman, obviously not Amish, in conversation. I asked if this was Pineview Grocery. They pointed to a low building with a wheelchair accessible ramp. On the door was a small sign, which read open.

We walked into the store no lights of course) and were greeted by a young lady in Amish attire. We had hit the mother lode. Not only were there the usual assortment of groceries, there was also the Raspberry trail mix, of which we had grown so fond. (.90 per pound in bulk) There were also wheels of baby Swiss cheese (.85 per pound). Both Mags and I were in pig-out heaven. Having our treasures in hand we left Amish territory for historical Southern Maryland.

Our goal was Point Lookout, some forty miles to the South East. Jutting out into the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, The location made it the perfect place to observe ship movements during the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. After the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War, the area was a POW camp for more than 52,000 Confederate prisoners. More than 3500 died from disease and other conditions. (Bet you didn’t know that. I had never heard about it). They were also forced to build Fort Lincoln, an earthwork fortress erected to keep an eye on the prisoners and to monitor ship movements up the Potomac River to Washington DC. Today it is a State Park perfect for relaxing at the shore, while the waves wash against the rocks. This is quite a contrast to the moans of the wounded and diseased of one hundred and fifty years ago. A monument to the dead commemorates the events, which occurred.

We started our return trip back to home. We were beginning to get hungry (the trail mix helped, but did not satisfy). We had to pass through historic St. Mary’s City, the first capital of Maryland, founded in 1634 by Leonard Calvert and company. Today it is the home of St Mary’s College, a coed institution, and a reconstruction of some buildings of the old capital. Ironically, we found no restaurants or fast food outlets (a surprise for a college town). There were, however, plenty of bait stores. People must catch their own lunch.

We finally found some food at a grocery store/bar and grill. The bartender went into the store at the Deli counter and made us sandwiches. Having been fed, we took a side trip to Piney Point Lighthouse. After W.W.I, the river from here to Point Lookout was a testing ground for torpedoes built in nearby Alexandria, VA.

Our next stop was Fort Tobacco, a major port for the export of tobacco in the nineteenth century. Today the town is landlocked: the river having been closed because of silt. The courthouse on what was once was the main square is one of the few buildings still standing from the town’s heyday. The significance of the town is that it was mapped out by John Smith from Jamestown, VA, and was a thriving community for over 150 years.

A short distance from Port Tobacco stands Thomas Stone’s house, Haberdeventure. Thomas Stone was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He was a moderate and mediated much of the deliberations between the Northern and Southern Colonies. To say the least, he was a political rising star and might have followed John Adams as the third president of the United States. Circumstances dictated a different course to his life. His wife became chronically ill, most probably due to mercury poisoning from medications she took while sick. He chose to be at her side and so stayed out of national politics. He remains a forgotten patriot. We were the only visitors to the house that day. The National Park Service Rangers gave us an in depth history of the property and of Thomas Stone’s life.

We went ten odd miles to Dr. Mudd’s house. Dr. Mudd, to refresh your minds, was the man who set John Wilkes Booth’s leg the night of President Lincoln’s assassination. Some think that he was a coconspirator to the killing. But the evidence seems to negate this. We spent over two hours talking with the docent, who took most of her information from the book, “The Life of Dr. Samuel A. Mudd” written by Dr Mudd’s daughter, Netti Mudd, with the help of his wife, Sarah. The book contradicts some of the testimony from his military trial, albeit being a civilian. After his conviction the was transferred to Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas Islands off the coast of Florida, instead of being shipped to a Federal Prison in upstate New York. This put him out of jurisdiction for an appeal. After saving hundreds of prisoners and jailers from a yellow fever epidemic, which swept through the prison, the soldier guards petitioned President Johnson to grant a pardon. The president never received the petition. So they sent it to Mrs. Mudd, who then received an audience with the President. Undergoing impeachment proceedings, President Johnson had more pressing issues on his mind. Before he left office he did pardon Dr. Mudd.

Members of the Mudd family, itself, have continuously occupied the house, even to this day. Many of the furnishings are original or from that period. The house and the events, which occurred there are a historic insight into the vengeful mindset of the public and the Union’s military after Lincoln’s assassination.

Maryland DUI Attorney: More Info Regarding DUI

Article by Dale Malone

A DUI (driving under the influence) accusation is no laughingstock. For an average person however charged with such, we all depend on our Maryland DUI attorney to handle all the proceedings for us. In the first place, isn’t it why they were hired? Personally, knowing what the Maryland DUI law entails to all of citizens and drivers of Maryland, it would be valuable to be au fait as well with some of the terminologies used and usually mentioned during the DUI hearing. That is to know in what course will the hearing proceed, as well as to learn the mistakes a driver shouldn’t commit throughout the police’s questioning.

Penalties. Most of us drive without caution for we do not know or choose to not know the penalties that come with a DUI or DWI (driving while impaired) charge. Let us take for example a boy playing with matchsticks. The mother says throw it away for he will be burnt. And a burnt finger is painful. The child of course will not listen. He light up the matchsticks and burns his finger. He cries and tells his mother never will he touch a matchstick again. In this case should we all have to undergo a DUI charge in order to know how it is to pay a ,000 fine or at to spend a number of cold days inside the prison?

Once convicted guilty of DUI, the driver could bid adieu to his or her driving rights. He or she should also look forward to a big amount of fine and some sleepless nights behind bars. His or her Maryland DUI attorney however could arrange for a hearing in order to challenge the court’s verdict. Should the hearing be successful, the driver’s penalties can be lighten up, that is if your attorney is good enough to make you win.

DUI per se. A DUI charge can be questioned in more than a few ways. A drunk driver is not a drunk driver if he or she is not in control of the car. The arresting police officer might be a witness but there are also points to consider in order to ascertain that the driver was indeed in control of the vehicle or mayhap been just sleeping or resting. First of that is whether the ignition or the car is running. Next is whether the driver is awake or sleeping. Third is to check the client’s position in the vehicle, where was he or she seated?. Fourth is when the headlights are on and last is to know the place to where the car was parked, was it along the road which is illegal, or on a parking area?. If such factors were proven to be present as in the case of the accused, then it is most likely that he or she is guilty of DUI.

To lighten up the discussion, first time offenders are actually given consideration, and in most cases are pardoned from the conviction of DUI. It does not excuse us however to attempt to commit DUI just to feel what it is to be in front of the court hearing and being represented by your Maryland DUI attorney. You now know what are the consequences and the possible chances you might be charged of DUI. So be cautious.

A DUI (driving under the influence) is a serious charge. However, many of us do not bother to know more about such charges, we all depend on our Maryland DUI attorney to deal with all the proceedings for us. In the first place, isn’t it why they were hired? Personally, knowing what the Maryland DUI law entails to all of citizens and drivers of Maryland, it would be favorable to be acquainted as well with some of the terminologies used and often mentioned during the DUI hearing. That is to know in what course will the hearing proceed, as well as to learn the mistakes a driver shouldn’t commit throughout the police’s questioning.

 

Penalties. Several of us drive heedlessly because we are not heedful of what could be the dire consequences once we are charged with DUI or DWI (driving while impaired). Let us take for example a boy playing with matchsticks. The mother says throw it away for he will be burnt. And a burnt finger is painful. The child naturally will not listen. He light up the matchsticks and burns his finger. He cries and tells his mother never will he touch a matchstick again. Should we also must pay a fine of at least 00 or sleep in a prison cell in order to know that a DUI or a DWI accusation is a charge we should not take lightly?

 

Once convicted guilty of DUI, the driver could bid goodbye to his or her driving privileges. He or she would have to pay a fine and of course is liable to face imprisonment. His or her Maryland DUI attorney on the other hand could arrange for a hearing in order to challenge the court’s verdict. Providing of course that the attorney chosen is capable enough to negotiate the penalties on his or her client, the client’s penalties could be lighten up.

 

DUI per se. A DUI charge can be questioned in more than a few ways. A drunk driver is not a drunk driver if he or she is not in control of the car. For the side of the accused, his or her attorney could refute it with several points, challenging the appellant whether his or her client is indeed awake or in control of the car on the time of the interrogation. First of that is whether the ignition or the car is running. Next is to see if the driver was unconscious or wide awake. Third is to check the client’s position in the vehicle, where was he or she seated?. Fourth is when the headlights are on and last is to know the place to where the car was parked, was it by the highway which is illegal, or on a parking area?. If such factors were proven to be present as in the case of the accused, then it is most likely that he or she is guilty of DUI.

 

Good news for first time offenders, the court is rather lenient and forgiving, and in most cases are pardoned from the conviction of DUI. It does not excuse us however to attempt to commit DUI just to know what it is to be in front of the court hearing and being represented by your Maryland DUI attorney. You now know what are the consequences and the possible chances you might be charged of DUI. So be careful.
