WASHINGTON (AP) — A George Washington University law professor is filing a complaint against Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby over the investigation and prosecution of six police officers in the death of a black man who was critically injured in the back of a police van.
John F. Banzhaf III says his complaint is being filed Wednesday with Maryland’s Attorney Grievance Commission. Among other things, Banzhaf says in his 10-page complaint that Mosby appears to have violated Maryland’s rules of professional conduct for lawyers, which requires that a prosecutor refrain from prosecuting a charge unless it is supported by probable cause.READ MORE: Fire Breaks Out At Canton Apartment Building
