BALTIMORE MAN SENTENCED FOR THEFT IN SCHEME TO SELL ILLEGALLY OBTAINED BUS PASSES

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that Leroy Stevenson, 50, of 569 Dolphin Street, Baltimore, was sentenced as a result of his guilty plea to one count of felony theft. Stevenson, a newspaper salesman for the Baltimore Sun, entered a plea of guilty in connection with a scheme to illegally obtain Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) bus day passes from a MTA bus driver and then sell those passes at a discount on the black market. The value of the passes that Stevenson stole is $939.00.

The Honorable Nancy B. Shuger, Judge of the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City, sentenced Stevenson to 120 days incarceration. Stevenson is currently on probation for an earlier conviction.

This case was referred to the Office of the Attorney General by the Maryland Transit Administration Police.
