  • 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...

    John S. Mosby, known as the “Gray Ghost,” was a Virginian who became legendary for his leadership of Mosby’s Rangers—a band of Confederate guerrilla fighters that harassed the Union Army and went toe-to-toe with George Armstrong Custer in the Shenandoah Valley. Mosby is still highly regarded as a strategist and tactician and is studied to this day by practitioners of unconventional warfare. He lived a long life, dying early in the 20th century, and was also a lawyer, a diplomat and author who wrote about his experiences during the war.

    The mayor's comments were in response to a profile of Mosby in The New York Times Magazine in which she said the mayor disseminated false information about the investigation into Gray's death. In the story Mosby recalled "screaming" at Rawlings-Blake and blaming the riots on her. Mosby told the magazine that she called Rawlings-Blake during the riots in April of 2015 and screamed, "You have single-handedly caused what's happening in this city right now," before hanging up on the mayor. Rawlings-Blake on Wednesday said, "Am I to blame? No," adding, "you have to stand up, be in the big role...

    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...
  • Court Must Dismiss Police Lawsuits Against Marilyn Mosby (says Michael Brown lawyer)

    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....

    On Wednesday, Mosby was back in front of the cameras where she made extraordinary shocking allegations against the Baltimore Police Department, again. A defiant Mosby refused to take any accountability for her rush to judgment in charging the six police officers just over one year ago. Instead, she chose to blame the Baltimore police investigators for her inability to sustain a single criminal charge against the accused officers. Mosby accused investigators of intentionally trying to harm the state’s ability to bring charges, even going so far as to claim investigators committed a felony by manufacturing evidence in the case. Yes,...

    I thought it unnecessary to add to Paul’s analysis below of the dismissal of the remaining charges in the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore, but then I watched Baltimore DA Marilyn Mosby’s press conference announcing the decision. You have to see it, not to believe it. She attacks the police. She attacks the judge. She says her case against the officers is solid, but is dismissing it anyway because the (black) judge is biased. And more. Then she closes by saying she won’t take any questions because of the civil litigation she faces for bringing the case. I can’t believe...

    Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby has dropped all charges against the remaining police officers (video below). All charges were dropped against all the officers who faced trial in connection with the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray April 2015. The decision was announced during pretrial motions for Officer Garrett Miller, who was the next to face charges of second-degree assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.

    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....

    They stood between the #BlackLivesMatter lynch mob and the police. Once again, Judge Barry G. Williams handed the Freddie Gray lynch mob a decisive defeat, shredding the prosecution’s case against Lt. Brian Rice, the highest ranking police officer targeted by the mob. Judge Williams stated firmly that, the court “cannot be swayed by sympathy, prejudice or public opinion.” Instead he insisted that it had to follow the law. Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who became a national figure by heading the Freddie Gray lynch mob, did not even bother to show up. She knew what was coming. And she had...

    A Georgetown law professor has filed disbarment charges against Marilyn Mosby for her corrupt prosecution of six Baltimore cops in the death of career criminal, Freddie Gray. There have now been 3 trials and Mosby hasn’t come close to winning one yet and has even been excoriated for withholding exculpatory evidence. The list of charges against Mosby are as follows: that she did not have probably cause to believe that there was sufficient admissible evidence to support a conviction of the officers; that she made public statements regarding the case which were false; that she improperly withheld evidence from the...

    An activist law professor with a penchant for weighing in on high-profile legal cases has called for Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby to be disbarred over her prosecution of six city police officers in the Freddie Gray case. John F. Banzhaf III, a public interest law professor at the George Washington University Law School in Washington, said he intended to mail a full complaint against Mosby to the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission on Wednesday. In the written complaint, obtained by The Baltimore Sun, Banzhaf calls Mosby a "runaway prosecutor" who has violated ethics rules governing the conduct of attorneys in...

    American Thinker ^ | June 28, 2016 | Jonathan F. Keiler
    The acquittal of Baltimore City police officer Caesar Goodson in the Freddie Gray case has led to a flurry of speculation as to whether state's attorney Marilyn Mosby will continue the prosecutions of Goodson's fellow officers, having so far lost two of three (with hung jury in the other). The speculation is misplaced. These trials are political, not legal in nature. Were Mosby a competent and ethical prosecutor, she would have never brought the cases. If she drops charges against the remaining officers she will be ruined politically, and she is not about to let ethical or legal scruples guide...

    Prosecutors seeking murder charges over Freddie Gray’s death rested their case against Caesar Goodson on Wednesday with an expert witness who crumbled under cross-examination. His testimony was the latest of several blows in the trial that experts say is prosecutors’ best shot at getting a conviction for Gray’s death. After failing to win in the first two trials, the case against Caesar Goodson is especially important for Marilyn Mosby, the embattled state’s attorney. Goodson was the driver of the van in which Gray was transported, and faces the most serious charge of second-degree depraved heart murder. Gray died of a...

    BALTIMORE | The judge who will decide the fate of a police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray on Thursday blasted city prosecutors for failing to turn over evidence that could exculpate the officer. On the opening day of the trial for Officer Caesar Goodson, Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams said that prosecutors violated Maryland court rules when they failed to turn over to the defense a discussion with Donta Allen, the second man placed inside the transport van after Gray was injured. “I’m saying you don’t understand what exculpatory means. I’m telling you that this [evidence] needs...

For those of you in Rio Linda, that means he let the judge decide. It was a wise, wise move. He obviously figured he couldn't get a fair and impartial jury in Baltimore, given the racial component here. Now, this case... Let's go back and listen to Marilyn Mosby. She's the state attorney here, and this is the day -- it's May 1st of 2015, a little over...
