In March 2020 and again in December 2021, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby presented data to counter Maryland Gov.

Mosby claimed a high conviction rate, about 90%, and she offered a chart showing the conviction rate for violent crimes had been steady at 89% or higher for at least a decade. Of course, while the conviction rate might have been consistent over that time, the amount of shooting and killing was anything but.
