Last week the Court
of Special Appeals vacated my sentence
which was the suspended portion of a 10 year sentence. My original sentence began in 1994. I was kept on probation until I violated because I couldn't keep up my restitution payments in 2009. After several hearings, the trial
Judge put into execution the suspended portion of that 10 year sentence.
The Special Court of Appeals Opinion stated that the Trial Court was "without authority" to extend her probation.
I plan to bring a Legal Malpractice Complaint
against my former attorney for not entering my requested Motion to correct an illegal sentence. Due to the statutes of linitations, it must be filed by September 16, 2013, so in order to meet that deadline, I will file the complaint Pro Se. I have a few questions:
1)Do I bring the Complaint in front of the District Court or Circuit Court?
2)If in District, what is the amount of damages I should be seeking.
3 I also feel I should bring a complaint against the state of Maryland for wrongful imprisionment.
Lastly, are their any samples of Legal Malpractice Complaints that I can look at?
