You can read all of my crime and courts reporting for The Washington Examiner here.
For a quick look, here are a couple excerpts:
The popular “Most Wanted” feature in The Washington Examiner reached a milestone this week when readers helped U.S. Marshals nab the 50th fugitive profiled in the newspaper. The weekly feature, which first ran in July 2008, was inspired by the FBI’s “most wanted” posters that appear in post offices. Editors weren’t sure the idea would work. They knew stories about the D.C. area’s most dangerous fugitives would make for lively reading. But would they actually lead to arrests? The answer came quickly.

A University of Maryland student awaiting trial on child pornography charges was arrested in a separate case this week after he arranged to have sex with someone he thought was a 12-year-old girl, authorities say. Court documents describe how 18-year-old freshman Akshay Rajshekar walked to class Monday while discussing final plans to have sex with the girl and her father. Rajshekar, a freshman from Salisbury, Md., was already facing charges of possession and distribution of child pornography following an investigation by the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office. He had been indicted and arrested in November, released on bond and allowed to return to school.
