The state's political corruption prosecutor will not step down in September as planned, but will instead remain in office until a replacement is named. In a harshly worded letter written this month, State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh said he was "disappointed" that Gov. Martin O'Malley had not moved more swiftly to convene a commission required by state law to help select his successor. Rohrbaugh posted the letter on his website Monday morning. "It is important that this state have an independent prosecutor who is not an elected politician," Rohrbaugh wrote.

State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh, whose investigation of former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon led to her resignation, said Monday that he will retire when his six-year term expires in September. Rohrbaugh said his tenure fighting corruption in the state has been "very difficult" and he is "not a fan" of politicians. "We really don't have the funding, we don't have the tools, the right statutes," Rohrbaugh said in an interview. "Many, if not most, of the judges are very liberal."

State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh argued Monday that the conviction of Baltimore Mayor Sheila should stand, saying allegations of juror misconduct do not merit granting the new trial that her defense attorneys have requested. "The Constitution entitles a criminal defendant to a fair trial, not a perfect one," Rohrbaugh wrote in a motion filed Monday afternoon, quoting a Supreme Court case. Dixon was convicted earlier this month of embezzling about $500 of gift cards intended for needy Baltimore families.

State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh suffered a setback Thursday when a judge threw out perjury charges against Mayor Sheila Dixon and tossed the bribery case against City Councilwoman Helen L. Holton. It was a high-profile loss for an office saddled with a reputation for rarely tackling big cases or landing noteworthy convictions, despite recent successes. Prominent Baltimore defense attorney David B. Irwin said some may look at the dismissals and conclude, "Oh, the state prosecutor's office lost another one."

State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh defended Thursday the indictment he brought against Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon and asserted in court papers that a jury needs to decide if Dixon falsified ethics forms and stole gift cards intended for needy Baltimore families. In a 37-page filing that responds to the mayor's request to dismiss the charges, Rohrbaugh takes issue with what he called a "self-serving" affidavit filed by the Dixon-appointed city solicitor in support of her defense. He also argues that Dixon's interpretation of the city ethics code would render that law useless, and says it is proper to charge her with both stealing gift cards and receiving them as gifts - noting that a person can be accused of both robbing a bank and receiving the proceeds of the robbery.

I tried on Sheila Dixon 's mink, and it felt, well, dirty. The fur itself was perfectly clean, but both pockets contained a strange, pebbly something. Like sand. Or tiny seeds. Or the remains of a tattered soul. Whatever it is, Dixon's grit goes to the highest bidder, along with the burnt umber coat, the Mano Swartz hanger and - best of all - the red evidence tag. State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh put the mink on eBay Wednesday along with a sporty, worn-looking Persian lamb jacket that also contributed to the mayor's undoing.

Nearly 200 voters in Maryland voted twice in the 2008 election - but none of the incidents was investigated or prosecuted because of budget and staffing restrictions in the Office of the State Prosecutor. More than a third of the voters who are suspected of intentionally voting twice came from Baltimore and Baltimore County, according to state Board of Elections documents obtained by Patuxent Publishing Co. Kevin Zeese, executive director of the Baltimore watchdog group True Vote MD, said the absence of investigation and prosecution is troubling, even if the number of suspected double-votes is relatively small.

The Maryland prosecutor whose City Hall corruption investigation led to the ouster of former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon said Monday that his office's proposed $1.2 million budget is "paltry" and prevents him from fully vetting allegations of fraud. "It is difficult to understand why the state is reluctant to spend relatively little to attempt to assure the budgeted money is being used as intended," State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh said in written testimony to a legislative committee reviewing his agency's spending.

The Maryland state prosecutor released a scathing memo Tuesday supporting the plea deal that will lead Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon to step down Thursday, calling her attitude "unrepentant" and "laughable." The three-page memo blasted Dixon for failing to show any public contrition after a jury found her guilty in December of embezzling roughly $500 worth of retail gift cards. In January, Dixon also pleaded guilty to one count of perjury. "It seems Ms. Dixon's unrepentant position is that the people of Baltimore should be willing to tolerate some corruption from their political leaders," wrote State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh.
