Baltimore’s Top Prosecutor Dismisses Roughly 600 Open Warrants Amid Pandemic

Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has dismissed nearly 600 open warrants for minor offenses in an effort to stem the number of people incarcerated amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Mosby announced Thursday that 586 warrants for offenses such as drug possession, paraphernalia possession, prostitution, trespassing and other minor crimes will be dismissed.

In March, Mosby ordered her staff to eliminate prosecuting such cases to help control the coronavirus outbreak in jails and prisons.

As of Friday, Baltimore City has 7,299 confirmed coronavirus cases, including 321 deaths, according to the Maryland government’s website.
