BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal prosecutors have filed an additional charge against a former aide to Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan for allegedly falsifying records.

McGrath has pleaded not guilty.

Joseph Murtha, his attorney, says McGrath “firmly stands by the fact that Governor Hogan formally approved of his compensation.”
