Charles County Criminal Lawyer
The Herbst Firm handles all types of criminal cases in the county including drug offenses, burglary, and assault. If you have been arrested by the sheriff or any of the municipal police departments contact our offices for a free consultation. Crime rates in the county have been on the decline in the last few years, especially for violent crimes such as aggravated assault and robbery. Motor vehicle theft and other theft crimes have gone down as well, but fewer arrests mean more emphasis on prosecution. Benjamin Herbst is prepared to take on the State’s attorney office and law enforcement to assure that his clients will receive the best possible outcome. Mr. Herbst has handled serious felony charges in Charles County such as arson and will not back down from any case, no matter what the accusations are.
The governor’s office and the sheriff are proud of the declining crime numbers in the county, and they should be. But these numbers do not include such offenses as traffic crimes punishable by jail, and possession or sale of controlled substances. These crimes have not experienced the same downward trend as violent crimes, and as more people move into the area, the number of arrests will continue to rise. Common criminal offenses in Charles County include possession of marijuana, DUI, and possession CDS with intent to deliver. Assault and other domestic crimes are also still prevalent in the county. The firm has extensive experience handling all of these offenses and is prepared to take on your defense. A criminal record can have devastating and lasting effects on a person’s future, but our two main goals in each case we take on are avoiding jail time, and avoiding a conviction. In most instances we can accomplish these two goals. Benjamin Herbst is available 24 hours a day to discuss your case and can meet you in the office or anywhere that is convenient, including southern Maryland. Call 410-207-2598 to set up an appointment and let us start fighting for you.
