ELI5–Just what does Wes Adams do as a State’s Attorney? (E-113)

Yes we know there is an election year going on. Yes we know that Wes Adams and Anne Colt Leitess are both vying for the office. But we were curious–just what does a State’s Attorney do?

It’s a race that many may not completely understand and in that vein, we decided to ask Adams exactly what it is that his office does. The only ground rule we had was no politicking!  Taking a cue from Reddit, we had him explain like I was five (ELI5)..which is not too far of a stretch!

Anyhow, sit back and have a listen and learn a bunch, just as we did.

Crime, Heroin, and Justice in Maryland? State’s Attorney Wes Adams Weighs In (E-20)

This week, The Maryland Crabs visit the courthouse to speak with State’s Attorney (for Anne Arundel County), Wes Adams. We remain un-indicted.

In this episode, we delve into the heroin problem that is impacting the state and what is being done to combat it. We talk a bit about the judicial system and how Anne Arundel is getting tougher on crime. Find out about Adams’ personal “YESS!” moment and the one that got away.

For a fantastic insight into crime, heroin, and justice in Maryland, this is a not-to-miss episode of The Maryland Crabs.

Thank you to everyone who wrote with suggestions for upcoming episodes. We are on it.  Coming up in the next few weeks will be the founders of The Annapolis Film Festival, Mayor Pantelides–both the candidate and the Mayor, Brooklyn Park’s very own Britney Girl Dale, and a surprise candidate for Mayor of Annapolis that will shake the race to its core. You will hear it here first!

  • Last week, we spoke with Marc Rodriguez. You may not know who he is right now, but you will. A sharp guy who has been working with Alderman Littmann and is poised to make a run for office in the upcoming Annapolis elections.
  • We recap 2016. Our last episode of 2016 was a lot of fun and lacking any direction whatsoever. We talked about how we decided to do The Maryland Crabs, where we want to go in 2017 and beyond, some of our past guests, and how good the lunch really was at Sammy’s Italian Pizza Kitchen in Eastport!
  • Governor Larry Hogan invited us into his private office for Jaegerbombs and wings while we watched the Ravens.  OK, so maybe it was more of a conversation with the State Police watching over us making sure we did not swipe the guitar off his office wall…but we did have a great conversation.

Oh hell…just go back and listen to the ones you have not heard!  And PLEASE be sure to tell your friends about us!

Tim restrained himself this week—nothing was stolen from the Courthouse! However, he did pick up a few drinking tips for must-visit pubs the next time he is in Ireland! Who knew the Courthouse was such a wealth of information!
