A state prosecutor for the city of Baltimore homicide division, Adam Lane Chaudry, was indicted on 88 charges that include harassment, obtaining phone records without authorization, felony theft scheme, stalking, extortion, harassment, and misconduct in office.
“Our justice system, particularly the significant role and power of the grand jury, relies on the integrity of law enforcement officials, especially prosecutors. Our office will work to ensure public officials who abuse positions of trust and authority are investigated and, where appropriate, prosecuted”, Maryland State Prosecutor Charlton T. Howard III said in a statement.
Chaudry has worked for the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office since 2009 and the homicide division since 2015. According to the state’s attorney’s office, cases have been reassigned.
“Mr. Chaudry was terminated from his role as Assistant State’s Attorney soon after we concluded an internal investigation of the State Prosecutor’s allegations. His termination was effective on June 18, 2021. Immediately following our internal investigation, his cases were reassigned and reevaluated on the merits of each case, where to date, we’ve found no reason to question the legitimacy of his cases. We are unable to comment further about this open and pending matter”, said a spokesman from the prosecutor’s office.
