A lawyer for the man accused of shooting a Baltimore priest launched a shouting tirade yesterday outside the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse, saying the city state's attorney is not investigating allegations that his client was molested by the priest. Hollering insults about prosecutors through a bullhorn, attorney Warren A. Brown stood alongside the family of the accused man, Dontee Stokes, 27. "The state's attorney's office is trying to whitewash this investigation," said Brown, who claims he came up with the bullhorn approach because his letters requesting a meeting with State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy have gone unanswered.
