What is a trial for Dismissal of Felony Charges in Maryland District courts?
2 Answers from Attorneys
The District courts do not have jurisdiction over felonies, and so there would not be a trial in the District on a felony charge.
Perhaps what you see is the deadline for the prosecution to have filed an indictment or an information in Circuit Court. Otherwise, the District Court might order the defendants released from jail. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.
