Davitt said, “This case exemplifies the tremendous accomplishments that come from a partnership and cooperation between law-enforcement agencies and offices of prosecution in rooting out corruption in the State of Maryland.”
Maryland State Police charged that Titus secretly videotaped himself committing sexual offenses on a young boy from ages 11 to 13 from 1990-1993. Titus maintained the pornography tapes over the course of 25 years and through two moves across Anne Arundel County and the Eastern Shore. In 2015, these tapes were found and turned over to Maryland State Police.
In reopening the barrack, Governor Hogan fulfilled a promise made during the 2015 legislative session, and reaffirmed the administration’s commitment to making sure that the Maryland State Police remains among the most effective, trusted, and respected police force in the United States. Earlier this year, Governor Hogan also budgeted for the State Police to hire 100 new troopers, 50 of whom are currently in training.
