Midday Newsmaker: State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby
On today's show, Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby joins Tom to talk about the consequences of police corruption and strategies to end our city’s epidemic of violent crime.
The aftermath of the Gun Trace Task Force scandal continues to reverberate in the city’s court system. Eight officers from an elite Baltimore City Police Unit were convicted of an array of charges, including racketeering and robbery. Four others have been convicted as well. They are all currently in prison.
Last week, State’s Attorney Mosby announced that her office had begun the process of asking the courts to vacate almost 800 cases that involved the convicted officers, and more than a dozen other members of the BPD.
