A former Maryland state delegate who represented parts of the city of Baltimore is facing federal charges of honest services wire fraud and accepting more than $30,000 in bribes.

Democratic Del. Cheryl Glenn, 68, of Baltimore, is accused of accepting bribes in exchange for her official support of legislation involving medical marijuana licenses, opioid therapy clinics and liquor licenses, and depriving her constituents of her honest services. The sum of the alleged bribes was $33,750. She stepped down from her seat suddenly on Dec. 18.

First elected as a delegate in 2006, Glenn served as the chair of the Banking, Consumer Protection and Commercial Law Subcommittee, the chair of the Rules and Executive Nominations Committee and chair of the Baltimore City Delegation.

Glenn was also formerly the head of the Maryland Legislative Black Caucus.
