BALTIMORE — Maryland's police superintendent resigned Wednesday after being indicted on charges of spending charity money on extramarital affairs and personal trips while he was Baltimore's police commissioner.
Edward T. Norris will be reinstated if he is cleared of the charges, said Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.
Indicted with Norris on Tuesday was John Stendrini, his former chief of staff in Baltimore. They are accused of misusing more than $20,000 between May 2000 and August 2002 from an account created from three Depression-era charity funds set up for police officers. The indictment was unsealed Wednesday.
