State prosecutors in the City Hall corruption cases defended their investigation of Baltimore's mayor, arguing they did not abuse the grand jury process when they issued three subpoenas this summer before dismissing their initial indictment of Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon. Deputy State Prosecutor Thomas "Mike" McDonough contends in court papers filed Friday that new investigative material brought to a Baltimore grand jury after Dixon's original indictment in January supported the second set of indictments that were brought against Dixon in July.

It was another "ah, Baltimore" moment. Ever get those? You get exasperated by some bureaucratic runaround at City Hall, and you sigh and steam and maybe that vein on your forehead starts to throb. But after a while, you learn to just surrender - "ah, Baltimore" - and accept you're going to have dial one more number or go to one other office or just do without whatever it is you thought you needed. That parking ticket I successfully fought but that popped up every time I had to renew my car registration?

State and federal authorities announced criminal indictments Monday in an alleged $70 million mortgage fraud scheme that ensnared more than 1,000 homeowners, most of them from Maryland. Assistant U.S. Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer said charges had been brought against four people in connection with the alleged Ponzi scheme, including Andrew H. Williams Jr., who was enjoined by Maryland authorities in 2007 when they froze his Metro Dream Homes operation. The victims of the alleged scheme were persuaded to invest $50,000 or more to refinance their homes or buy new ones under a program that promised to pay off their mortgages within five to seven years.
