Bernstein To Try First Case As State’s Attorney

BALTIMORE (AP) — Gregg Bernstein will try his first case as Baltimore’s state’s attorney this week.

The case involves three police officers accused of kidnapping two Baltimore teenagers and abandoning them. Their trial begins Thursday.

The officers — Milton Smith, Tyrone Francis and Gregory Hellen — are charged with kidnapping the teens in separate incidents in May 2009. Authorities say the officers picked up the 15-year-olds in a police van, and then released one in East Baltimore and one in Howard County. The officers are part of a special unit that focuses on violent crime prevention.

Bernstein, a former federal prosecutor and defense attorney, took office in January. During last year’s campaign, he criticized his predecessor, Patricia Jessamy, for not trying cases herself.

    They beat that NEGRO because he was cruising for a smash & grab in a neighborhood that was white & Jewish. When was the last time if ever you read about a white person breaking into a porch monkeys domain?

      Stephanie, Bet you never had one of those Baboons grab your kids ass & molest them or beat your parent within an inch of their life for a few dollars & fun. Stay protected in your lilly white ass burb house because the likes of you would cave in faster than warm ice cream at the sight.

    Tommy, You must have been doing something wrong for them to pay attention to you. I applaud all the officers who make you drug dealers, crooks, convicts, pay for things you shouldn’t be doing!
