After being elected president of the Women Legislators of Maryland, Del. Ariana Kelly (District 16) proclaimed that she had just “fulfilled one of my legislative dreams.”

Kelly, who is already known around Annapolis for fighting for women’s causes, now heads an organization dedicated to the rights and needs of women and girls on issues such as child care, domestic violence and human trafficking.

“I think it’s an incredible opportunity. I think there are a lot of ways to improve women’s lives,” she said.

“For me, it’s both a tremendous honor to be elected by my colleagues, but it also is a tremendous opportunity to improve the lives of the women of Maryland.”

According to County police spokesperson Rick Goodale, Prince George’s County police arrested 34-year-old Atuan Rogers in July and 19-year-old Dierra Thomas in June.

Police said the victim worked for Thomas and Rogers for 2.5 months and had sex with 288 clients before she told Rogers she “didn’t want to have sex anymore.” Rogers hit the victim in response.
