The third time must be the charm. I have previously written about a case I have in Baltimore City where the car is parallel parked and is being used as a shelter to drink beer in front of the house where the drinkers are spending the night. There is no intention to drive the car. I asked for a jury trial in Baltimore City so that I would get an experienced prosecutor who would understand the law (Atkinson case), and the case would be dismissed. The first genius it is assigned to tells me the Atkinson case only applies if my client was drinking beer in the car "in front of his own house." I explained that the witnesses would testify he was spending the night at the house where the car was parked. She says the case does not apply. Atkinson was not in front of his own house, and it applies when you are sleeping it off in the bar parking lot, WHERE YOU DO NOT LIVE.
