"We have created an attitude that no matter how important and grievous a crime is, that a technicality takes precedence over the rights of the victim," said Delegate Patrick L. McDonough, Baltimore County Republican. "So any time a defendant comes into court and has a language problem, there's a good chance they could have their case dismissed."
