BALTIMORE (AP) – An attorney for indicted Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon says she “has been the state prosecutor’s singular, personal obsession for the past four years.”

The Democratic mayor was indicted Friday on 12 charges, including theft, perjury and misconduct in office.

Attorney Arnold Weiner mounted a detailed, angry verbal attack against Republican State Prosecutor Robert Rohrbaugh.

He criticized the prosecutor for looking into every detail of Dixon’s life and failing to come up with what every prosecutor looks for when investigating a public official – a bribery charge.

Dixon declared her innocence and says she will not step down from office.
