Judge finds that FBI agent Matthew Lowry's "limited role" doesn't taint Baltimore prison-gang case

Maryland U.S. District judge Ellen Hollander says that, based on the "very limited role" of Washington, D.C.-based FBI special agent Matthew Lowry, whose suspected evidence-tampering has prompted dismissals of numerous drug cases, in the investigation of the racketeering case against the Black Guerrilla Family (BGF) prison gang and affiliated corrections officers at Baltimore jails, "it does not appear that there is any taint to" the BGF case. Her findings on Lowry, prompted by a notice filed yesterday by one of the defense attorneys who'd discovered Lowry's name in probe documents, were docketed this afternoon as part of an order resolving numerous legal questions prior to the start of the BGF jury trial, which is scheduled to begin on Nov. 17 for eight remaining defendants.
