My question involves criminal law for the state of: Maryland, Hi I am a 23 year old male who has a warrant out for his arrest for 1st degree burglary. I have never been charged with a burglary or felony before. I have found out threw talking to local lawyers that a house i was living in was broken into a couple months after I moved out and in with my girlfriend. The crime was said to happen 6-18-08 but the warrant wasn't issued until 9-14-08. I am just finding out about this warrant 1-8-09. The lawyers I have talked to said that they can get the warrant dropped but I still would have to go to court for the charge. I don't know how or why I am getting charged with this the lawyers say that the home owners could have said it was me or threw finger prints??? Since I lived their wouldn't my prints be their anyway. I'm very lost and scared I have a two year old daughter and a great full time job that I've been with for sometime now that I don't want to lose to jail time and was getting ready to finally go back and finish up school. Do you think I will see jail time because of this or probation or maybe get the charges dropped. In Maryland would first degree burglary entail a weapon was used. Please somebody help.
