On July 8, an attempted murder defendant accepted a new plea agreement before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Troy K. Hill for a 2023 shooting.

Mandakova Clark, 41, was charged with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first-and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, firearm use in a felony violent crime, having an unregistered rifle or shotgun, discharging a gun in Baltimore City and malicious destruction of property valued up to $1,000 for an incident that occurred on the 4300 block of Belvieu Avenue on Aug. 24, 2023. 

With her attorney, Brandon Taylor, Clark accepted the prosecution’s new plea offer.

The plea was for five years, suspending all but three years and two years of supervised probation for reckless endangerment with a concurrent five years for having an unregistered rifle or shotgun.

While accepting the plea, Clark thanked the prosecution for the new offer and apologized for the incident. 

The prosecution also allowed Clark to serve her three years on home detention instead of in jail. She will also have to register as a gun offender and have no contact with the victim of the incident upon release.
