2 Officers On Probation After Misconduct Conviction

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Two Baltimore City police officers are on probation after being convicted of misconduct.

Ron Matz has more. 

According to WJZ’s media partner, “The Baltimore Sun,” Detectives Tyrone Francis and Milton Smith were sentenced to 18 months probation and 250 hours of community service.

They were accused of kidnapping two Baltimore teens and dropping them off in remote locations.

The officers were acquitted of those charges and will get to keep their badges for now. They still face department charges and could be fired.

Both officers maintain their innocence.

This was the first case personally tried by Baltimore State’s Attorney Gregg Bernstein since he was elected last November.

    Tyrone Francis needs to be fired now. Francis loves to plant evidence, do illegal search and seizures, and make false arrests. He is as crooked as crooked comes. Complaint after complaint filed by people with less than stellar records yielded nothing from his superiors until this case. Now all those complaints need to be looked into one by one. Innocent people have gone to prison and been convicted because of this jerk. Fire him now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    YOU ARE 100 % CORRECT. i HAD A RELATIVE TOO THAT REFUSE TO LOCK UP DRUGS DEALERS BECAUSE HE WAS A SR. POLICE OFFICER ON THE TAKE ! . HE WOULD FAKE ARREST BY PLANTING DRUGS ON MANY DIFFERENT INNOCENT AND NOT SO INNOCENT PEOPLE.

    THIS FORMER POLICE OFFICER HAD SO MUCH MONEY UNTIL HE AND HIS WIFE THAT WORKED FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT PURCHASE EXPENSIVE CARS, A 3 K HOUSE, TRIPS, OPEN UP BUSINESSES AND ETC,..

    THAT DIRTY DOG RAN ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK WITH HIS HUSH DIRTY MONEY. WHAT TOOK THE ICING OFF THE CAKE, THIS SAME POLICE MAN WAS ABLE TO RETIED FROM THE POLICE FORCE WITH HONORS. ONCE HE LEFT THE FORCE, HE THEN WAS ABLE TO GET A SECURITY JOB WITH IN THE LOCAL COURT’S SYSTEM. NO TYPE OF CHARGES WERE EVER FILED AGAINST HIM BECAUSE HE WAS IN THE CLICK. THAT POLICE CLICK IS WORST THEN ANY GANGS ON THE STREET, NOW HE LIVE LIKE A KING.

    YEA. DAMN RIGHT, FIRED THE PUNK POLICE MAN. MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF HIM IN ORDER TO SEND A HEAVY MESSAGE TO ALL THE OTHER DIRTY DOGS THAT ARE GIVING THE HARD WORKING GOOD POLICE FORCE A BAD NAME FOR THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

    WHY SHOULD THERE BE ALLOWED A DOUBLE STANDARD OF JUSTICE. NONE AT ALL. WHAT EVER THE LAWS STAND FOR, THEN LET THE LAWS STAND FOR ALL PEOPLE.
