Lawyer for professor accused of prostitution seeks delay

January 27, 2007|By Tyrone Richardson

The defense attorney for a former University of Maryland, Baltimore County assistant professor accused of working as a prostitute out of her Ellicott City home has asked that her Feb. 5 trial in Howard County Circuit Court be postponed, according to prosecutors.

Brandy M. Britton, 41, of the 10200 block of Shirley Meadows Court faces four counts of prostitution, each of which carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $500 fine.

Defense attorney Christopher Flohr requested the postponment because of a personal conflict.

"The state is aware that defense counsel will be making a motion to reschedule, and we are not inclined to oppose the request," said T. Wayne Kirwan, Howard County state's attorney's office spokesman.

Britton's case was delayed in August when she was granted a jury trial. In May, a judge postponed the case because Britton's lawyer, Christopher Flohr, asked for more time to prepare the case.

Flohr was not available for comment yesterday.
