Baltimore Woman Sentenced to 5 Years for ‘Blatant’ Parole Violation

A convicted Baltimore woman was sentenced to an additional five years in prison on Aug. 4 for multiple firearm convictions from 2019 before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Jeannie Hong

Antionette McGouldrick, 34, was convicted and sentenced to 15 years in Anne Arundel County for a 2019 incident, where she illegally possessed ammo, a handgun on her person and possession of a firearm with a felony conviction. 

“That’s a blatant violation of your probation,” Judge Hong said. 

McGouldrick’s 2019 conviction on top of her 2012 conviction for conspiracy to commit murder in Baltimore City caused her probation from the initial case to be violated, putting her up for sentencing today.  

McGouldrick was initially sentenced to life plus 20 years for conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, but her conviction for second-degree murder was overturned due to issues with the vior dire questions.

She then pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge and was sentenced to 30 years in prison suspending all but 24 years with five years of supervised probation on Sept. 15, 2016. 

Due to these circumstances, Judge Hong sentenced McGouldrick to five years, which are concurrent, to the conspiracy charge but consecutive to her sentence of 15 years in prison, the first five years without possibility for parole, in Anne Arundel.
