Assistant Professor David Gray

The Baltimore Sun - Mayor Sheila Dixon's attorneys signaled Friday that they plan to ask for a new trial in her gift card misappropriation case, while the state prosecutor said he would not "at this time" retry the one count that hung the jury this week. "I imagine they will renew their motion, and now they have the added ammunition of what some of the jurors said publicly after the verdict," said David Gray, JD, PhD, MA, a School of Law assistant professor who followed the trial.

Assistant Professor David Gray & Adjunct Professor Andrew Levy

The Baltimore Sun, The Daily Record, WMAR-TV & WYPR-FM - The confusion stems from a little-used area of Maryland's Constitution governing the "suspension and removal of elected officials convicted of crimes." It outlines criteria for removal and even reinstatement following a successful appeal. But Article 15, Section 2 is an untested area that's ripe for guesswork, said David Gray, JD, PhD, an assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Law. Andrew Levy, JD, who also teaches at the University of Maryland School of Law, said that the verdict would probably enhance the chances of a plea deal in the March trial, which will examine whether the mayor failed to report lavish gifts from her boyfriend on city ethics forms and lied about it.

Assistant Professor David Gray & Adjunct Professor Andrew Levy

The Baltimore Sun - "Based on their deliberations and the results, I think it would be hard to make the case that the jury was biased against the mayor," said David Gray, a law professor at the University of Maryland. "They worked very hard and took their job seriously." Andrew Levy, a Baltimore lawyer and adjunct professor, said that while some might argue that Rohrbaugh shouldn't have prosecuted Dixon for the relatively small dollar amount of the gift cards, "it was his call to make."

Adjunct Professor Andrew Levy

The Baltimore Sun, WBAL-TV, WJZ-TV & WBFF-TV - While Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon's defense team mulls over what to do about the single guilty verdict returned against her for misappropriating gift cards, prosecutors are considering whether they can get one more by retrying Count 6, which hung the jury with a 9-3 vote in favor of conviction. Among the factors they're likely weighing is cost, in both dollars and time, said Andrew Levy, JD, a defense attorney who also teaches at the School of Law.
