Non-Fatal Shooting Case Dismissed as Defendant Pleads Guilty to Other Weapons Charges

Baltimore Court Seal

A non-fatal shooting defendant’s case was dismissed on May 11 after he agreed to plead guilty in two other firearms cases.

Khalil Clark, 21, appeared before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Melissa K. Copeland on Wednesday to accept a plea agreement in two separate cases, both of which included multiple weapons charges for incidents on July 6, 2020, and May 19, 2021.

The defendant pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a firearm as a minor between the two cases, accepting a four-year sentence in each case that will run concurrently. Clark must also register as a gun offender.

Possession of a firearm as a minor carries a maximum sentence of five years.

Under the plea, the prosecution agreed to dismiss a third case where the defendant was charged with discharging firearms during an incident on July 1, 2020.

Clark, who was represented by Staci Pipkin and Dalia Weintraub, rejected a plea of five years with parole for all three cases last December.
