Wes Adams Anne Arundel County State's Attorney

Adams Portrait WebThe State's Attorney's Office is committed to justice by employing the highest ethical standards in vigorously prosecuting the guilty, protecting the innocent, and representing the interests of the State of Maryland in court. We are the chief law enforcement office and work with the police, county and state agencies and community groups to address criminal activity at all levels. We prosecute crime not only in the courtroom, but also referring minor incidents for diversion, substance abuse treatment and neighborhood mediation. We advocate for the rights of victims and witnesses and provide educational and informative programs to help prevent our citizens from becoming victims of crime.

Texting at a Red Light

Did you know... that it is against the law to read a text message while you are sitting at a red light? Maryland Vehicle Law provides that "an individual may not use a text messaging device to write, send, or read a text message ... while operating a motor vehicle in the travel portion of the roadway."
