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

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.
