Marilyn Mosby, a state attorney in Baltimore, Maryland, is now on fire for only charging Trent with one count of arson, pleading to be reduced to just one of the original 18 charges.
“This appeal is very confusing on many levels.” Roya Hannah, A former prosecutor who is running to oust Mosby.
“For three murder attempts, the fact that they gave him a test would make victims lose interest in the system, reassure the perpetrators, and that kind of appeals are destroying the city.”

Clyde Boatright, president of the Maryland State Fraternal Order of Police, called Trent’s plea deal a “political venture.”
“What we’re looking at right now is a political venture to increase the crime rate,” he said Friday on “Fox & Friends.”

“They put these people in the office, and everyone else is suffering,” he told LBL’ Steve Doosy. “We can’t let these political people dry up because they want to push the agenda.”
Hannah called on Mosby to step down from her seat.
“It’s not about her or this campaign,” Hannah said. “It’s really about making sure criminals are held accountable.”
