As the prosecutor what crimes would you charge each of the offenders with? Use the Maryland Code (statutes) to identify the specific statutory codes for the crimes that you would charge them with. When choosing a statute you should be able to identify what specific facts or evidence (from the above narrative) you would use to meet the requirements of the statute. In addition, you need to provide the maximum statutory penalty for each of the offenses and indicate whether the legislature has defined the offense as a felony or a misdemeanor. You should attempt to charge the offenders with as many crimes as you can reasonably identify. Use the following chart format to collect your information.
