According to an August 4 report in the Sun, it was important to Polis that Brown pled guilty. She could have received a 35-year maximum sentence, but a 10-year sentence with five years suspended was sought. Scott Shellenberger, the Baltimore County State's Attorney, said:
"Asking for five years is a good sentence where the person has no prior convictions, and we are very pleased that this case has now been resolved."
