McDaniel College's guest speaker for Constitution Day, Executive United States Attorney Stephen Schenning, born in Baltimore, has extensive background as a trial attorney in both the public and private sector, in addition to state and federal courts. As an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Maryland, Schenning concentrated on white collar criminal cases. Schenning has substantial experience in health care fraud, public corruption, real estate mortgage fraud, bank fraud, mail and wire fraud, and money laundering. The lecture will take place Thursday, September 12 at 7:00 p.m. in Lewis Hall of Science's Decker Auditorium.
Schenning was appointed to serve as the First Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland in January 2011, where he managed the daily operations of the criminal, civil, and administrative divisions of that office. On April 26, 2017, Schenning became Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland due to a vacancy when U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein was sworn in as Deputy Attorney General. He served as Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland until April of 2018 when a new U.S. Attorney was sworn in. While in that role, Schenning supervised the corruption prosecution of the Baltimore Police Department that resulted in 11 convictions, including eight police officers.
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Christianna N. Leahy, Chair of McDaniel's Department of Political Science and International Studies, at email@example.com.
