A Baltimore police officer accepted cash payments and provided protection for a man she believed to be a drug dealer — a man who was actually working with department investigators and FBI agents to build a criminal case against her, authorities alleged Friday. Ashley Roane, a 25-year-old patrol officer in the Southwestern District, agreed to access law enforcement databases listing informants and other sensitive information for the drug dealer, and provided Social Security numbers to him as part of a scheme to obtain false tax refunds, prosecutors said.

A Baltimore judge sent a police officer to jail on Wednesday for 45 days after he was convicted of beating a drug suspect who had broken into his girlfriend's home, a rare punishment for a police misconduct case. A sheriff's deputy clicked handcuffs around Anthony Williams' wrists as his family screamed and sobbed from the public benches. Williams was led out of the court, across the busy public area of the downtown courthouse and into the lockup. The door slammed behind him. "This case was very troubling to this court," Judge M. Brooke Murdock said before handing down the sentence.
