ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) A former federal prosecutor is running for Anne Arundel County state's attorney.

Eric Grannon says State's Attorney Frank Weathersbee has been in office too long. Weathersbee is running for a sixth term.

Grannon says the status quo in Anne Arundel includes lenient plea deals, probation for repeat offenders and not enough cases going to trial. Weathersbee disputes the suggestion that he's too lenient.

The 38-year-old Grannon lives in Davidsonville and is a partner with White + Case in Washington, specializing in antitrust issues. He's a former assistant attorney general for the District of Columbia.
