Maryland Gun Charges – Illegal Gun Sales Gets Former Police Chief 60 Days in Jail

Practicing law in a metropolitan area, it is common for an experienced Maryland criminal lawyer to represent city employees who have been accused of criminal charges. These individuals can include clerks, elected officials and even police officers. The circumstances are similar in a recent case where a former Maryland chief of police was arrested for stealing a gun and selling it illegally.

Last Friday, David Eichelberger, former police chief of Morningside, was sentenced to serve sixty days in jail after being convicted of Maryland gun charges and theft charges. He was accused of stealing a .40-caliber handgun that was registered property of the Morningside Police Department. Eichelberger then proceeded to sell the firearm out of the trunk of his police car for an unknown amount.

Immediately following the launch of the investigation against him, Eichelberger was fired from his position by Morningside officials. Circuit Court Judge for Prince George’s County, Nicholas Rattal, originally sentenced him to serve five years in prison for the Maryland gun charges, and eighteen months for the theft. In the end however, both sentences were suspended to sixty days, which can be served concurrently. In addition, he is also required to serve eighty hours of community service and pay $300 in fines.

Being accused of criminal charges is a difficult and overwhelming experience for anyone to go through, regardless of occupation. As seen by the example of David Eichelberger, conviction of Maryland gun charges or theft charges can have life-changing consequences, including losing your job, paying fines, and/or serving jail time. For the best protection of your personal liberties and freedoms, it is essential to contact a hard-working and aggressive Maryland gun lawyer. Doing so immediately can not only provide the highest quality legal advice and legal representation, but also help ensure the most positive outcome for your case.
