City man pleads guilty in attack on Kaufman

May 12, 2007

A 38-year-old West Baltimore man pleaded guilty yesterday to robbery with a deadly weapon in the December attack on political activist A. Robert Kaufman, according to the city state's attorney's office.

Steven Carr of the 3800 block of Hillsdale Road admitted taking part in the Dec. 6 robbery on the porch of Kaufman's home on North Hilton Street. Carr admitted striking Kaufman in the head with a brick and then taking his wallet.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 7, prosecutors said.

Kaufman - who has run for a variety of local, state and federal offices on a socialist platform - was also attacked at his home in 2005. That attack left him badly injured and in need of a kidney transplant.
