October 27

TFGawd, Cory McMillon is back behind bars after being arrested at 2 a.m. this morning at the Duke's Motel on Route 40.

Before his scheduled murder trial was to begin today, Ross H. Talp, 19, pled guilty to the second-degree murder of his mother, Margo Antoinette Baker, and to a deadly weapon charge. Under terms of the plea agreement announced in open court he faces a maximum prison term of 33 years when Judge John M. Glynn sentences him on January 4, 2006.

Say what? A jury acquitted Akiba Matthews on all counts.

A HoCo judge will rule in November if the interrogation video of Melissa B. Harton will be admissable in court. Harton is accused of strangling Natasha Bacchus to death in Columbia. Both women were persuing doctoral degrees in psychology at Loyola.

At a hearing today, Donald Washington, 20, of West Franklin Street, pled guilty to the second-degree murder of Andrea Butler-Carroll, age two. Judge Wanda K. Heard scheduled sentencing for January 18, 2006. On September 23, 2004 Washington beat to death Andrea Butler-Carroll, his girlfriend's daughter, at their residence in the 1900 bock of West Franklin Street.

I agree with Galt, sending juvenile offenders out of state is a great idea. To heck with Iowa, why not Syria?

The murder trial of Keith Garrett, originally scheduled for today, has been postponed at the request of the defense until January 31, 2006 before Judge John Glynn.

The Rogers Forge Perv has struck before, as evinced by two pre-teens' matching descriptions of an SUV-driving 30-something guy sporting excessive amounts of hair product.

I believe the technical term for this is "Jury Nullification".

But why? Baltimore juries nullify all the time. Aside from not wanting to see another black male sent to jail, why do they nullify?
