O'Malley selects a new state prosecutor
Davitt's prosecutorial experience comes from time in the criminal division of the Attorney General's office. There he led the the insurance fraud unit. Other courtroom experience on his resume includes prosecuting drug cases in Baltimore.
He graduated from the University of Maryland's law school and earned his undergrad degree from the University of Virginia, according to his bio on the Community College of Baltimore County's website. He is listed as a member of the Board of Trustees for that college.
Davitt would take over from outgoing prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh, who was appointed to the six year term by Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich and did not seek re-appointment.
