If you are a victim of a crime, you can report the crime to a law enforcement agency in your jurisdiction. Based upon your report and their investigation, the law enforcement agency may file charges.

If the law enforcement agency does not file charges, you may file your own Application for Statement of Charges with the District Court Commissioner located at 411B W Naylor Mill Road, Salisbury, Maryland 21801. You will be required to write a detailed statement of the facts to the Commissioner, and list any evidence that you have that supports your statement in a Statement of Probable Cause. The Commissioner will review the Statement of Probable Cause to determine if there is probable cause to issue the charges.
