DWI & DRUGS GO TOGETHER LIKE A HORSE & CARRIAGE FOR CRYSTAL BALCH
PRINCE FREDERICK, MD. – A Lexington Park, Maryland woman faces new drug and DWI charges following her arrest on April 6, 2021 in Prince Frederick.
Maryland State Trooper Woolman stopped a Chevy operated by Crystal Dawn Balch, of 20528 Ridge Road, Lexington Park, Md., as she motored south on Md. Rt. 4 at South Main Street in Prince Frederick, the county seat of Calvert County. Balch is being provided a free attorney courtesy of the hapless taxpayers of Maryland when she is set to face the Calvert District Court Judge on July 29, 2021. Balch was also charged with negligent driving, failing to stop and yield as well as knowingly operating an uninsured vehicle on a Maryland highway.
St. Mary’s Sheriff’s Department Deputy R. Wilhelmi charged Crystal Dawn Balch, with DWI drugs as she fled from a crash scene on Winding Way in Lexington Park, Md., on July 12, 2020. Balch was also charged with negligent and reckless driving. Gaining the slick representation of noted Leonardtown attorney Shane Mattingly, Balch pleaded guilty to DWI drugs in District Court of St. Mary’s on November 24, 2020. THE DEAL: St. Mary’s States Attorney Richard Fritz consented to a jail term of six months and all of the time was suspended with supervised probation for three years. With a new conviction from the Calvert County arrest, the backup time of six months from St. Mary’s County should kick in and extend her being foisted on the taxpayers of Calvert County. Charges of bringing drugs into the jail, somewhat popular at the Hotel St. Mary’s, were dropped as part of the deal.
Sometimes there is barely enough of this junkie to go around for area law officers looking to rid the highways of stone-cold menaces to society like this drug-addicted bozo.
Balch was arrested for DWI drugs the day after she was nabbed by Deputy Wilhelmi. On July 12, 2020, Balch was pinched by DFC. Matthew Beyer. Sheriff Tim Cameron reported that at the time of arrest a baggie of suspected Suboxone strips was located as well as a scale with suspected cocaine. Balch was charged with two counts of CDS: Possession-Not Marijuana. On November 24, 2020, as part of the sentencing on the charge from the previous arrest, Balch entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to 134 days in jail.
When arrested on Oct. 3, 2019, by Maryland State Trooper E. Ruggles, Balch got the assistance of another free attorney which was provided her by the generous taxpayers of Maryland, and found that Fritz would shell out another plea deal that removed her from the highways, alas, only for thirty days. In a plea deal on February 13, 2020, Balch entered a guilty plea to DWI drugs.
