Gov. Larry Hogan isn’t backing down after Baltimore city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby criticized the governor’s crime plan for the city.

Instead, Hogan said the “the status quo is completely unacceptable.”

Gov. Hogan has complained about too many repeat, violent offenders getting plea deals from the city state’s attorney’s office and lenient judges.

“We are not putting people in jail when they shoot people,“ the governor said. “We are going to make sure we start locking people up who are continually shooting people on the streets.“

Gov. Hogan cited the shooting of Baltimore City Police Sergeant Isaac Carrington as an example of leniency in the justice system. He made the remarks in Baltimore Wednesday.
