Maryland Governor on Expansion of Project Exile

ANNAPOLIS, MD (STL.News) Governor Larry Hogan issued the following statement regarding today’s announcement by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Jonathan F. Lenzner:

“I have repeatedly stressed the need for real action to get the shooters and murderers off the streets of Baltimore City.  We are again expanding Project Exile to enable federal prosecutors to charge repeat violent offenders with federal crimes so we can put them behind bars to serve real time.  I authorized the funding for these additional prosecutors through the Governor’s Office of Crime Prevention, Youth, and Victim Services.  This is an important step, and we are committed to doing everything we can to address the violent crime crisis in our largest city.”
