General Announces the Arrest and
Indictment of TFC Mohan
BALTIMORE, MD (December
19, 2008) - Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler today announced
the arrest of Maryland State Police trooper Andrew A. Mohan,
36, following his indictment in Prince Georges County on charges
of theft of money from the Maryland State Police and Misconduct
In Office. The indictment alleges that Mohan stole money from
the Maryland State Police (MSP) totaling over $3,200.
It is also alleged that TFC Mohan misused his official police
duties to improperly access and disseminate restricted criminal
records information and motor vehicle registration information
in State and federal data systems. The pending case was investigated
by the Maryland State Police and the Criminal Division of the Maryland
Attorney Generals Office. No trial date has been set.
While an indictment is merely an accusation of wrongdoing and
every individual is presumed innocent unless the State proves the
charges beyond a reasonable doubt, felony theft is punishable by
a maximum sentence of 15 years or a fine of $25,000, or both. Misconduct
in Office, a Common Law misdemeanor, is punishable by any sentence
deemed not cruel and unusual.
