BALTIMORE (AP) — A former Baltimore County prosecutor is set to go on trial on charges that he stole a car at knifepoint from two women in January 2010.

Isaiah Dixon, 55, faces 18 counts, including armed carjacking, robbery and assault. He is scheduled to go on trial Monday. To avoid any conflict of interest, Dixon’s case is being handled by a prosecutor from the Harford County state’s attorney’s office, but will remain in Baltimore County Circuit Court.

Dixon worked as an assistant state’s attorney for almost eight years until July 1997. He then worked as an attorney in Towson before being disbarred by the Maryland Bar Association last year.

Dixon already had a criminal record for drug use and possession when he was arrested in the carjacking case.
