Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby Holds Press Release on Alleged Police Evidence Tampering

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 

Ephesians 5:11-12

Baltimore State’s Attorney holds press conference to address a video, which has now gone viral, allegedly showing a Baltimore City Detective, while two other Officers watched, planting evidence at a crime scene, allegedly to frame an unidentified African American male. Deputy Attorney Janice Bledsoe and her former law partner Sandra Goldthorpe (who were some of the best Baltimore criminal defense lawyers in the State), addressed the room of reporters regarding the incident. Bledsoe, who famously represented Kenneth Perry, who in 2011, was found guilty of the 1998 murders of LaShawn Jordan, Kelly Bunn and Bunn’s unborn child.

Perry was previously convicted of the killings in 2001 and sentenced to life without parole, but a judge ordered the case retried after it was revealed that a prosecutor, Cassandra Costley, who died in 2015, had withheld some evidence from the defense.

Throughout the trial, Perry threatened Bledsoe; causing her to inform the Court that she received phone calls from several Baltimore City inmates indicating that she would be killed. Bledsoe stated in open court, outside the presence of the jury, that she was “Extremely Scared of Perry”. Shortly after the conviction, Bledsoe was hired as an Assistant State’s Attorney for the City of Baltimore. Goldthorpe was also hired soon thereafter. Based on Bledsoe’s impeccable experience in dealing with the criminal justice system; it is without question that she will zealously and vigorously determine what occurred in the underlying case. Mosby, who famously prosecuted 6 Baltimore City Police Officers, for the unfortunate killing of Freddie Gray has championed justice through transparency and accountability, despite, political pressure to do otherwise.
