Boy it’s a Breaking News Wednesday here today. Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon has agreed to resign on February 4th as part of the plea deal with the Baltimore City Prosecutor’s office. Dixon will get 4 years of Probation, 500 hours of community service and be required to contribute $45,000 to charity. City Council President Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will become mayor on the 4th.

Dixon will keep her annual pension of $83,000 as part of the deal, but some of her property will be auctioned to make restitution for perjury.
