ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Eleven Maryland state lawmakers are asking county police to investigate sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, if alleged victims support investigating. The 11 Democrats from Maryland's Montgomery County made the request in a Tuesday letter to county Police Chief Tom Manger. The legislators write that "Maryland might have no statute of limitations shielding defendants from accountability for some of the alleged acts." Capt. Paul Starks, a Montgomery County Police Department spokesman, says "we're aware of the letter, and we plan to respond to it." Christine Blasey Ford has alleged that Kavanaugh forced her into a room at a high school party in the 1980s, held her on a bed and tried removing her clothes as he muffled her mouth with his hands. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. … [Read more...] about 11 state lawmakers ask police to investigate Kavanaugh case

Farmington announced Tuesday that Police Chief Brian Lindquist will be stepping down effective Aug. 24. He has been with the department 20 years and chief almost 12 years. He’s not being fired, Mayor Todd Larson said. But he’s not choosing to leave either. “I think he would have preferred to stay,” Council Member Robyn Craig said. “I think he would have liked to retire here.” The council will make the decision final at its Aug. 20 meeting. The city’s news release described the process as a “separation agreement” similar to how the city parted with its fire chief last year. “City council desired new leadership in the department to move into the future,” the release said.
