DC NITELIFE IS SPOTLIGHTING MARILYN MOSBY, BALTIMORE CITY STATE’S ATTORNEY
I often get asked, “Marilyn, what’s the best part of being State’s Attorney”? The best part about being Baltimore City State’s Attorney is the opportunity to help people by doing the right thing!
As a wife and mother of two young girls, I’m fiercely committed to protecting every child in our city from those who seek to do them harm. For the past five years, I have been going to Annapolis, along with a coalition of sexual assault survivors, advocates and other elected leaders, to fight for a common-sense change to Maryland law that will protect potential victims and survivors of sexual assault. HB 301 and SB 270, the Repeat Sexual Predator Prevention Act of 2018, will give prosecutors the tools to effectively hold sexual predators and rapists accountable by allowing evidence of other, similar sex offenses by a suspect to be used in court.
Despite already being federal law for the past 20 years (as well as in many other states), 2018 is poised to be the year we pass this critically important bill in Maryland. It’s the right thing to do and it’s about time! I am so proud to be a part of the bipartisan coalition fighting to pass this law and make Maryland safer for each and every family. Like this Baltimore Sun article states, ‘Time’s up on serial rapists’!
I am running for re-election for Baltimore City State’s Attorney because there is still much work to do and so much we can accomplish on behalf of families and communities TOGETHER!
