Frequently Asked Questions
If you are seeking information about your case, go to Maryland Judiciary Case Search.
The Office of the State's Attorney is charged with prosecuting all criminal and traffic offenses that occur in Anne Arundel County. These include all crimes, ranging from a traffic offense to murder. Our office represents the victims of crimes. We do not handle civil matters, nor Department of Human Resources Division matters such as child support.
Victims or witnesses should contact the police to make a report. In certain circumstance, you may also go to a District Court Commissioner and file charges against the person who you alleged committed a crime against you.
A subpoena means you MUST come to court on the assigned date. If you are unable to do so the Assistant State's Attorney handling the case or Victim-Witness Specialist MUST personally excuse you. Not showing up for your court date may result in a bench warrant or body attachment being issued for your arrest.
The Anne Arundel County State's Attorney's Office does not play a role in child support or domestic relations matters other than domestic violence. Please contact the Office of Child Support Enforcement for Anne Arundel County at 1-800-332-6347.
