A Baltimore City prosecutor withdrew the State’s Attorney’s plea offer for a 23-year-old attempted homicide defendant on Nov. 1 when the defendant rejected the plea and opted for a jury trial.

Kyre Redd-Harris appeared in Baltimore City Circuit Court’s reception court before Judge Dana M. Middleton for multiple attempted murder, assault and weapons charges for a shooting on April 25, 2023. Defense attorney Singleton Matthews stood in for the defendant’s counsel, James Rhodes.

During Wednesday’s proceedings, the prosecution presented a plea offer of 50 years, suspending all but 20 years, for attempted first-degree murder and a concurrent 10 years, the first five years without parole, and five years of supervised probation. The plea also required Redd-Harris to register as a gun offender and have no contact with the prosecution’s witnesses or victims.

Matthews rejected the offer on behalf of the defendant, which was then withdrawn by the prosecutor. Counsel agreed on a three-day trial, beginning Jan. 16, 2024, before Judge Jennifer B. Schiffer.
