Walter Wilson and Larry Worsley were indicted in separate cases relating to on and off-duty offenses

Baltimore, Md. (March 16, 2023) - Today, State's Attorney Ivan J. Bates announced the indictments of Officer Walter Wilson and Sergeant Larry Worsley in separate cases that will be prosecuted by his Public Trust and Police Integrity Unit in Baltimore City Circuit Court. An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at trial.

"In the interest of transparency and accountability in law enforcement, I am compelled to announce these indictments to the public today," said State's Attorney Bates. "The allegations in these cases are unacceptable for anyone in our city, but especially for our law enforcement officers. Such actions further erode public trust in the badge and do an incredible disservice to the majority of men and women at the Baltimore Police Department who protect and serve our city with integrity."

The grand jury indicted Officer Walter Wilson for Misconduct in Office for events that occurred on October 20, 2021. Misconduct is a common law offense with no set maximum penalty so long as the sentence is not considered cruel and unusual by the court. The grand jury also indicted Sergeant Larry Worsley for assault, theft, use of a firearm in a crime of violence, and disorderly intoxication for events that occurred on March 5, 2023. Worsley would face a maximum penalty of 80 years of incarceration if convicted of all charges.
