The witness was relocated three times — and then a fourth after the Baltimore Sun published this person's name in the paper after they testified in court. The children of the witness, at one point, had to be sent away for their own safety — and the witness had to sleep at the BPD homicide unit's office due to the imminent death threats that loomed over their head. Everywhere this witness went required a police escort. When the case was all over this person had to quit their job, move out of the city and start a new life for themselves and their children. In order to obtain that conviction, this witness had to trust that my office would protect them.
