A squeegee worker walks with his spray bottle and squeegee in the middle of stopped traffic as he works a corner in Baltimore, in this 2019 photo. A decades-old debate over Baltimore's mostly youthful squeegee workers is reaching a crescendo as the city grapples with issues of crime, poverty and racial inequities, and now, with a fatal confrontation between an enraged, bat-wielding motorist and the14-year-old squeegee worker who shot him dead. The boy has been charged with first degree murder, and will be tried in adult court. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)

Yesterday, a judge blocked the plea deal that had been reached between the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office and defense attorneys for the teenage squeegee worker charged in the murder of Timothy Reynolds on July 7th.
