Jury deliberations are underway in the theft trial of Baltimore mayor Sheila Dixon.
Dixon faces charges she spent gift cards on personal shopping that were meant to be given to needy children. Dixon claims she unknowingly used the cards, thinking they were for her.
During closing arguments late this morning, prosecutors alleged Dixon could not have gotten as far in life as she has if she got confused by things like this. Defense attorneys countered such statements show the state has little evidence against Dixon, who also faces allegations she misused cards while president of the city council.
Dixon faces five charges in total but because some are based on different legal theories, she can only be convicted of three.
