DEMOCRAT Baltimore Sen. Nathaniel Oaks Indicted on Nine Fraud and Bribery Counts

State Sen. Nathaniel T. Oaks has been indicted on nine federal fraud and bribery counts in an action that supersedes the criminal charges brought against him in April.

Oaks, 70, is expected to appear in U.S. District Court in Baltimore to answer the charges within the next week or two, said Schneyder Metellus, a spokesman for the Maryland U.S. attorney’s office. No date has been scheduled, he said.

The indictments handed up Wednesday by a federal grand jury follow a criminal complaint filed against Oaks in the final days of the General Assembly session that ended April 10.
