Assistant State's Attorney in Anne Arundel County Fired After His Arrrest for Child Abuse and Assault

Rashad Wright was arrested on child abuse and assault charges last week after police responded to a 911 call from neighbors in their Glen Burnie neigbhorhood.  Police, according to an account from the Capital Gazette, pulled up to find Wright and his daughter on the street. Police initially the 33 year old prosecutor didn't want police talking to his daughter, and bosted that he was an assistant state's attorney. He later allowed them to talk with the girl and she said he hit her with his belt. Reportedly a police sergeant later found that the girl had marks from the belt on her wrists and thighs. 

A spokeswoman confirmed that Wright was no longer by the Anne Arundel State's Attorney's office and that his cases have been handed off to other prosecutors.  He's scheduled for a preliminary hearing on November 2.
