My Biography

Justin Fenton joined the Sun in 2005 and has covered the Baltimore City Police Department and the criminal justice system since 2008. His work includes an investigation into Cal Ripken Jr.’s minor league baseball stadium deal with his hometown of Aberdeen, a three-part series chronicling a ruthless con woman, the killing of five Amish children at a schoolhouse in Nickel Mines, Pa. and a job swap with a British crime reporter to explore differences in crime-fighting. A story about how Baltimore police were discarding rape cases at a higher rate than any other city led to sweeping reforms in how the city investigates sex crimes. In 2010, the City Paper recognized him and colleague Peter Hermann as the Best Journalists in Baltimore.
