Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon issued the following statement today in the wake of Tuesday's jury verdict finding her guilty on a charge related to misusing gift cards intended for the poor:

"I am reflecting on the trial's outcome, talking with advisors, and reviewing my options. I understand that the trial has engendered a range of strong feelings among citizens who, like me, love Baltimore City. I deeply regret that the citizens of Baltimore have had to go through this ordeal with me.

"While I recognize that the issues before me go beyond the courtroom, my attorneys have advised me to limit my comments while the legal process continues.

"In the meantime, my administration and I will continue to do the people's business without interruption, and we will continue to act in the best interests of the City."
