When you are arrested in Maryland, you will be given a Statement of Charges which will set out some of the facts supporting the allegations against you. You can not get police reports at this first stage. Once you hire an attorney, he or she will be able to obtain the police reports and evidence against you in a process called discovery. At Houlon Berman, we get this material as quickly as possible and review it with you in detail. We believe that an informed client can better help in his or her defense and can make better decisions during the process.
