A third challenger, Wes White, collected less than 10 percent.  Corey’s loss was cheered by defense lawyer and academics, many of whom had criticized her aggressive prosecution, particularly of juveniles.   “Corey’s loss is an encouraging sign that the public will no longer tolerate overzealous and unprincipled criminal prosecutions, including women and children,” Mary Anne Franks, a law professor at the University of Miami, said in a statement Tuesday.  Even musician John Legend, who cofounded the criminal justice reform campaign #FreeAmerica weighed in on the Fourth Judicial Circuit State’s Attorney’s race
