A Baltimore City circuit court judge has ruled that outgoing Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby violated a gag order in the case of Keith Davis Jr.
Davis is facing his fifth trial in the 2015 killing of a Pimlico security guard, Kevin Jones. Davis was initially convicted, but the case was overturned twice. Two other trials ended with hung juries.
WBAL-TV 11’s Kate Amara reports that the judge ruled that Mosby violated the gag order after Mosby directly responded to an Instagram post.
The judge fined Mosby $1,500, which Mosby can avoid paying if she complies with a new, more strict gag order that lasts 90 days, Amara reports.
