July 7

A girl who claims to have been raped by convicted murderer Charles Carroll is suing the Community Initiatives Academy and its principal Christina Phillips Holtsclaw.

John Joseph Zappola pled (or "plead" as ABC would say) guilty today to one count of sexual abuse of a minor. He'll get a suspended 10-year sentence and then be on probation for five.

The trial of Tavon Wilson, 20, of the 3600 block of Bowers Avenue, is scheduled to begin 9:30 tomorrow morning before Judge Allen L. Schwait, 400 Mitchell Courthouse. The Baltimore City Grand Jury indicted Wilson March 17, 2004 for first-degree murder and child abuse in connection with the death of his girlfriend's 13-month-old daughter. Court documents allege that on February 24, 2004, Tavon Wilson murdered Dajah Mckoy at the mother's apartment in the 3600 block Bowers Avenue.

At a hearing today, attorney for perverted practicioner Keith Jennings argued that Jennings should remain free on $250,000 bond while his case is appealed. The State argued that Judge Alpert clearly ordered that Jennings was to begin serving his prison sentence July 8 and should begin that term tomorrow. Judge John Glynn ruled that Jennings' turn-in date be moved to Tuesday, July 12. At that time, Judge Alpert can rule on the appellate bond motion filed by the defense.

In the Metro section: one-year-old Erika Alexander was reunited with her mom, a guy was stabbed in Abingdton, the homeless guy who stabbed the other homeless guy is being held without bail and a man-on-man rape at the Boatyard Bar and Grill in Annapolis.

A jury was chosen in (what I call) the Espinoza triple-child-murder case.
