Former prosecutor pleads guilty to stalking his romantic partners, obtaining their personal records

A former Baltimore homicide prosecutor who was accused of misusing subpoenas to monitor and stalk his romantic partners, pleaded guilty on Friday in federal court.

Adam L. Chaudry, 43, pleaded guilty to two felony counts of fraud in connection with obtaining confidential phone records. Federal and state prosecutors alleged that Chaudry used his position as a city prosecutor to subpoena phone records for his romantic partners along other victims dozens of times over multiple years.

U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett told Chaudry that he found the charges “extremely serious,” adding: “The notion of a prosecutor abusing his office … in the face of the crime wave we’re facing, for some personal mission, is quite shocking to me.”

The Daily Record reported that Chaudry was accused of improperly issuing more than 65 grand jury and trial subpoenas between January 2019 and April 2021. The primary target of the subpoenas was Chaudry’s ex-girlfriend, whose relationship with him lasted from 2005 until 2018.

Chaudry used his power as a prosecutor to issue 33 subpoenas for the woman’s telephone records, according to the indictment.

According to the Record, Chaudry also issued six subpoenas for the phone records of a second woman with whom he was romantically involved with from 2017 until 2020, prosecutors said.

Three other alleged victims whose phone records were accessed were friends of the first woman, according to the indictment. Chaudry was also accused of using personal information about the woman to gain information about her stays at a hotel that appeared in her phone records.

Chaudry faces a maximum of 15 years in federal prison. His sentencing is scheduled for March 8.
