Man's false Baltimore drug arrest deemed unwarranted by court

'The Wire' star pleads not guilty to drug charges in Baltimore court

Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, a woman known for her role on the HBO series "The Wire" recently pleaded not guilty at her arraignment earlier this month. She was originally arrested on conspiracy and drug charges back in March in conjunction with a sting operation put together by state and federal law enforcement officials. The undercover operation termed "Operation Usual Suspects" by law enforcement, resulted in the arrest of more than 60 people. The police accused Pearson of providing financial support to a criminal organization that sold numerous types of drugs, including heroin and marijuana, throughout the greater Baltimore area. Originally, the court refused to release Pearson on bail; however, the judge later agreed to release her on a $50,000 bond so that she could continue working on a film.

Husband found guilty of wife's Baltimore murder is sentenced

A court battle over the 2008 murder of a woman by her community activist husband has come to an end. Months ago we wrote a post about this criminal case in which a Maryland man was found guilty of first-degree murder. Now, a Baltimore judge has sentenced the 35-year-old defendant (a community activist and husband of the murder victim) to life in prison. As the Baltimore Sun points out in its recent coverage, the case is a tragic example of how a violent crime can tear apart a family. The man convicted of killing his wife leaves behind three young children, who now are missing their mother and father.
