Woman Charged as Accessory in Shooting Gets Probation


A Severn woman has been sentenced to serve a period of probation for her involvement in an incident where an Anne Arundel County police officer was shot. Danielle Blake, 30, was initially sentenced to serve eight years in prison for her participation in the events following the shooting. The officer who was shot, Corporal Larry Adams, testified in court that he forgave Blake for her role in the shooting and asked the court not to make her serve any more time in jail. The judge suspended the prison sentence.

According to court records, Blake was in a vehicle with Colvin White, of Annapolis, on April 10, 2015. White had gone to a nearby 7-Eleven to get gas when Corporal Adams approached the vehicle. The officer then went to the 7-Eleven in response to a report of a suspicious person (White). He then chased White into a nearby wooded area, where White shot him twice. White then fled in the van with Blake.

Adams told the court that, in his opinion, Blake had no intention of committing an illegal act that day, and did not initially know that White had shot him.
