Topic: Current Trends in APA Litigation
Brian Green, Esq.
Criminal practitioners, help track the efficacy and implementation of the PBJ(c) – Maryland now has a Probation Before Judgment disposition that can give noncitizens the same possibility of probation as citizens, to avoid having one mistake derail their whole lives. The new law creating the new PBJ(c) procedure went into effect on October 1st and is already protecting people from unintended deportation. The University of Maryland is conducting a survey of anyone who requests a PBJ(c) procedure, to make sure it is being applied equitably across the state. Please help us by filling out the survey any time you requested a PBJc, whether it was granted or not!
