Well-Respected Baltimore Defense Atty Indicted! Racketeering, Money Laundering And Conspiracy To Distribute

Like all cities in America, we here in Baltimore have issues with criminals and corrupt politicians.

There’s no way to stop corruption but when you have someone who has taken an oath to uphold the law turn around and become the very thing you try to fight, then there is something wrong with the system.

According to WBAL, Baltimore defense attorney Ken Ravenell was federally indicted on three criminal counts. Charges range from assisting drug traffickers to beat the law enforcement system to racketeering to even distributing drugs. I might as well call Ravenell, Mr. Big.

“According to the indictment, Ravenell violated the legitimate and lawful purpose of the law firm where he worked in order to enrich himself and Individual 1 by receiving payments from a drug trafficker client and his associates in exchange for instructing the client and his associates how to evade law enforcement and continue their drug trafficking, laundering drug proceeds, and obstructing justice to protect the client and his associates,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

Prosecutors said the indictment alleges Ravenell knowingly protected and assisted co-conspirators in their drug trafficking by coaching co-conspirators about law enforcement techniques so that they could evade these techniques when they trafficked in narcotics.

Prosecutors said Ravenell allegedly used the law firm’s bank accounts to launder hundreds of thousands of dollars and protect the drug-trafficking organization.

The indictment also alleges that Ravenell participated in a conspiracy to distribute 1,000 kilograms or more of marijuana, prosecutors said. [WBAL]

Maybe he will defend himself in the courtroom as he has already shown himself to be a fool. This dude must have thought he was in a movie or some crime drama television show.
