Former Pocomoke police chief, current Baltimore state's attorney contractor, indicted

A former Eastern Shore police chief who alleged racism after he was fired without explanation has been indicted on misconduct in office charges by the state prosecutors' office.

Kelvin Sewell, 53, a retired Baltimore Police homicide detective who now works for the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office, was indicted by a Worcester County grand jury Tuesday, court records show. The allegations stem from a November 2014 incident, the records show.

The Pocomoke City Council fired Sewell in 2015 and gave no justification for the move, saying it was a personnel matter. The dismissal divided the town of 4,000: Sewell, who was Pocomoke City's first black police chief, alleged it was retribution for him standing up for two black officers who complained about racism.

This was pursuant to a monumental lawsuit that he filed.Every single branch of our government chooses the path of least resistance.An indictment was the ONLY logical choice.Now his chances of dragging this on for years appear nil.

So will the trooper who covered for his fellow troopers DUI accident on superbowl weekend in Somerset County be indicted as well? After all we never have heard anything else about it.All shore police departments are corrupt,some just hide it better than others.
