For any misdemeanor offense that carries more than 90 days in jail, the defendant has a right to a trial by jury.  For any District Court trial which results in a conviction, the defendant has a right to an appeal which takes the form of a new trial.  These criminal jury trial prayers (CJ Cases) and criminal appeals (CA Cases) are handled in the Circuit Court by District Court prosecutors approximately every six weeks. Connie Loureiro is the legal assistant who coordinates the jury trial and criminal appeal cases before they are assigned to prosecutors for trial and can be reached at cloureiro@co.pg.md.us.
