The penalty for driving without insurance in Maryland can be up to a year in jail and a fine. As a general rule, if this is your first offense, you would not go to jail. However the points you would get on a conviction could revoke your license to drive, therefore an attorney is advisable.

Jail is unlikely, but not impossible. You would also get 5 points if you didn't get a PBJ. But you should almost NEVER plead guilty to this offense. It is very defendable. Cojntact an attorney.
