Mr. Shellenberger was born and raised in Baltimore County. He is a graduate of Loch Raven High School, Loyola College and the University of Baltimore School of Law. He fulfilled a lifelong dream when elected State’s Attorney for Baltimore County in 2006, and was re-elected in 2010, 2014 and 2018. Since his election, Mr. Shellenberger has been an effective advocate for crime victims not only in Baltimore County, but also across the State. He was instrumental in the passage of an expanded DNA law, which gave law enforcement agencies the opportunity to prevent violent crime. Since its passage, Mr. Shellenberger has traveled across the State training law enforcement agencies on the implementation of the law.
