Previously on Bad Lawyer I blawg-ed about Mayor Sharon Dixon of Baltimore who was convicted of misdemeanor petty theft. The Baltimore Sun is reporting on the deal to keep Her Honor out of jail, she resigns.
This prosecution was oteworthy because of the apparent extraordinary misconduct of jurors who were involved in "social networking" and cyber-research during the trial. The post-trial proceedings promised at least a re-trial. Now it is all moot, with the plea deal and resignation of Mayor Dixon.
