Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles, Jr. sentenced Malick Green, age 30, of Baltimore, today to 10 years in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.
The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein; Special Agent in Charge Steven L. Gerido of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - Baltimore Field Division; Baltimore City State’s Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein; and Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts.
According to Green's plea agreement, on March 17, 2012, Baltimore City Police Detectives were observing the area around the 1800 block of North Broadway in Baltimore, and saw Malick Green enter an alley in that area. Green was holding his waistband as he ran through the alley to the rear yard of 1812 Register Street. Detectives observed the defendant move a piece of plywood that covered the rear basement stairs to 1812 Register, place a metallic object that officers believed to be a handgun on the steps, and return the plywood to its original location. Green then continued south down the alley.
Detectives located Green on Register Street and detained him as they went to the rear yard of 1812 Register. Detectives moved the plywood and found a.45 caliber handgun, loaded with a magazine containing six rounds of .45 caliber ammunition. Green was prohibited from possessing a firearm and ammunition due to previous felony drug convictions
