“A federal jury convicted two Baltimore police detectives Monday for their roles in one of the biggest police corruption scandals in city history. Detectives Daniel T. Hersl, 48, and Marcus R. Taylor, 31, were found guilty of racketeering, racketeering conspiracy and robbery. Prosecutors said they and their comrades on the Gun Trace Task Force had acted as ‘both cops and robbers,’ using the power of their badges to steal large sums of money from residents under the guise of police work.” (02/12/18)
