BALTIMORE (AP) — A trial exposing a wildly corrupt Baltimore police unit may have concluded in a courtroom, but federal and police investigators are still digging into possible offshoots of the case.
U.S. prosecutors Leo Wise and Derek Hines presented the case against the eight Baltimore police detectives in the rogue Gun Trace Task Force. The prosecutors spent much of the last two years investigating the rogue unit, which Wise has described as a "perfect storm" of corruption.
Last week, a jury found two Baltimore detectives guilty of robbery and racketeering in an explosive federal investigation that's seen six disgraced Baltimore law enforcers plead guilty.
On Wednesday, Wise told The Associated Press that the racketeering case "took us into places that at the beginning I never would have expected to go."
