  • Baltimore prosecutor files petition to erase pot convictions [Mosby]

    Baltimore’s top prosecutor has filed a rarely used legal petition intended to vacate 3,778 convictions for possession of marijuana, arguing an extraordinary legal strategy is necessary to “right an extraordinary wrong.” In a highly unusual “Maryland v. Maryland” filing in state court, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby used a petition called “writ of error coram nobis” that allows a court to reopen cases when substantial error is found that wasn’t apparent in initial judgments. The petition, if granted, could wipe out thousands of pot possession convictions. Mosby’s arguments are based on what she paints as an opportunity to achieve retroactive justice...

    Less than a year after Baltimore prosecutors ordered staff not to charge illegal immigrants with minor, non-violent crimes because it could get the offenders deported, Maryland’s largest city will hire immigration attorneys to help those facing removal. It’s important to note that Baltimore has the nation’s highest per capita homicide rate and has been coined the deadliest big city in the United States by a mainstream newspaper. Nevertheless, a city panel approved spending $200,000 this month to pay for lawyers to represent illegal aliens with deportation orders. Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh says in a local news report that the goal...

    While this story takes place in Baltimore, it could just as well be unfolding anywhere in the United States. A few years ago there was a deal cut in Charm City through the office of Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby. Between 2012 and 2015 more than 170 inmates convicted of violent crimes were released early because previous sentencing guidelines and court procedures were considered too “unfair” for modern sensibilities. Among those set free was one Wendell Beard, who had been serving a life sentence for the murder of real estate broker Beryl Friedrick back in the seventies.And why not,...

    Many people feel Baltimore has a real image problem. A group is trying to change that image and held a town hall Tuesday in an effort to keep families in Baltimore. Federal population estimates indicate Baltimore’s population may fall to a 100-year low. So, the idea is to reverse middle class flight, and that is the work of the Downtown Baltimore Family Alliance. Crime and public safety are among the top reasons families cite when choosing to move away from Baltimore City. Advocates said that when families leave it poses a serious threat to the local economy and undermines the...

    Five of the six officers charged as accessories in the death of Freddie Gray in April 2015 filed suit against Baltimore’s state attorney Marilyn Mosby (shown) for malicious prosecution, defamation of character, and invasion of privacy, among other claims. Last Friday U.S. District Court Judge Marvin Garbis, in a 65-page ruling, ruled that their lawsuit against Mosby may move forward. The next step is discovery during which Mosby and others in her department, as well as the Sheriff’s department, will be required, under oath, to explain just how she and they could reasonably claim that the officers were guilty of...

    The long, drawn out battles surround the Freddie Gray trials in Baltimore may seem like a distant memory at this point. Much of daily life in the city has returned to normal, even though the murder rate stayed stubbornly high at 318 for last year. (Shockingly, that’s still down from the 344 they rang up the year before, but far higher than 2014’s level of 211, which was far more typical of the past decade.) With all the trials against the police officers involved in Gray’s arrest and subsequent death having failed or been dismissed, the dust has largely...

    Baltimore City State’s Attorney is calling for major changes in investigations of police misconduct. State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby pushes reforms for officer misconduct cases, including granting her office arrest powers. Do her proposals go too far or do they fix a broken justice system? Mosby wants the power to limit officers from choosing bench trials–after the strategy proved successful for the officers she charged in Freddie Gray’s death. It’s one of several changes the state’s attorney is asking for in police misconduct cases.

    Warner Todd HustonOctober 17, 2016 The lawsuits filed against Marilyn Mosby, the Baltimore District Attorney who tried unsuccessfully to prosecute six Baltimore police officers for the death of Freddie Gray, could have far-reaching consequences. Warren Alperstein, a legal analyst, told the local CBS affiliate that if the lawsuits filed by the officers are allowed to continue, Mosby could lose her immunity and her compulsion to testify in the case could cause major rifts in the state’s attorney office. “You can bet that the officers and the attorneys are champing at the bit to get Mrs. Mosby under oath,” Alperstein told...

    Two prominent women with both powerful influence and considerable political ambition were in the eye of the media storm all through the Freddie Gray trials in Baltimore these past couple of years. One was Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who famously held the police back to “give those who wished to destroy space to do that” as rioters were burning down her city. The other was state’s attorney Marilyn J. Mosby. Married to Baltimore City Council member and recent mayoral candidate Nick Mosby, she’s one half of a power couple who shared lofty goals for political prominence. Unfortunately, she’s also the same...

    Baltimore police officers routinely discriminate against blacks, repeatedly use excessive force and are not adequately held accountable for misconduct, according to a harshly critical Justice Department report being presented Wednesday. The report, the culmination of a yearlong investigation into one of the country’s largest police forces, also found that officers make large numbers of stops — mostly in poor, black neighborhoods — with dubious justification and unlawfully arrest citizens for speech deemed disrespectful. Physical force is used unnecessarily, including against the mentally disabled, and black pedestrians and drivers are disproportionately searched during stops, the report says. The Justice Department released...

    Lawsuits filed by Baltimore police officers against Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby must be dismissed, according to the law. The United States Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors acting within the scope of their duties in pursuing criminal prosecution are immune from civil suits.The role of a prosecutor in a criminal case is to seek justice and represent the People of a given jurisdiction against a person charged with committing a criminal offense. This is exactly what Marilyn Mosby did when the officers involved in Freddie Gray’s death, which the medical examiner ruled a homicide, were indicted by a grand jury....

    Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is going from prosecutor to civil defendant in connection with the case of the death of Freddie Gray. On Wednesday, Mosby announced that charges against three officers still facing trial were being dropped. Mosby gave only a statement, but had to leave without taking questions because five of the officers in the case have filed lawsuits against her. Officers Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter as well as Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice are suing Mosby and Maj. Samuel Cogen of the Baltimore Sheriff's Office. Cogen was the law enforcement officer who...

    Marilyn Mosby’s cases against six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray has been by all accounts an utter failure, but the state’s attorney was nevertheless defiant on Wednesday when she announced her office is dropping charges against the three officers who still faced trial. The 36-year-old Mosby, who became a media darling last year when she announced charges against the officers for the arrest and death of Gray, complained during a press conference that the deck was stacked against her and her team of prosecutors. “While to this day we stand by the decisions, the legal theories,...

    (CNN)Shortly after being elected last year, Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby said prosecutors like her in the troubled city had the "toughest job in America." It's not getting any easier. After three Baltimore police officers were acquitted in recent months of charges related to last year's high-profile death of Freddie Gray, prosecutors announced Wednesday they were dropping all charges against the three remaining officers facing trial in connection with Gray's death. The news was a defeat for Mosby, who had announced the charges against the six officers in May 2015 -- four months after she took the job as the...

    Freddie Gray case: Charges against three remaining officers dropped Prosecutors dropped all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray in a downtown courtroom on Wednesday morning, concluding one of the most high-profile criminal cases in Baltimore history. The startling move was an apparent acknowledgement of the unlikelihood of a conviction following the acquittals of three other officers on similar and more serious charges by Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, who was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well. It also means the office of Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J....

Brian Rice was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment in a bench trial before Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams. Prosecutors had blamed Rice for Gray’s death because he did not put a seat belt on the prisoner when Gray was loaded into the back of a police van. Gray, 25, died from spinal cord injuries he...
