Police officer indicted in Mt. Vernon shooting

Officer Tshamba was indicted on murder and gun charges and could face life in prison.

Are you really good at digging deep, dark holes?

Can you dig one deep and dark enough for a man who rapes a 5-year-old girl? Probably not.

Need some copper tubing? So does this construction site.

Possibly armed man vanishes.

"This is, I think, fire No. 7 in 13 years … They've all been arson."

Battle of Baltimore Crime's Favorite Two People: Warren Brown vs. Pat Jessamy

18-year-old arrested for shooting two other 18-year-olds in Edgewood. Of course, the alleged perp appears to be currently awaiting trial for armed robbery, assault, weapons charges, etc.

"Why is this even news anymore?" Three men shot in two hours (actually more like 1 hour, 13 minutes).

Court time, expense this

The man who wants Pat Jessamy's job would eliminate the do not call list, send prosecutors out of the murder scenes with homicide detectives, and says he would spend more time in court.

Meanwhile councilman Bill Henry said $6000 worth of bar tabs and meals charged to the city was payback for volunteers.

What a shocker...

Registered sex offender arrested for sex offense, according to this poorly written, apparently unedited article. (Look, ma, no hyphen!)

Highlights: "Then Mason drove to a business in the Annapolis area to purchase food and was accompanied by the 13-year-old female." Nice way to start a sentence...

"One of the females text a family member stating that the juveniles were scared and needed assistance."

"Mason was arrested and charged with Second Degree Rape, Perverted Practice and Contributing to a Mino." He contributed to a mino? Helping out needy birds is a crime now?

Your tax dollars at play

Councilman Bill Henry pays the city back $6K for bar tab, other expenses.


Jury doesn't buy insanity defense - Mary Koontz found guilty of murdering her husband. According to her daughter (and would-be victim), "it was like a weight lifted off all of our shoulders."

No charges will be filed in the shooting death of a home invader back in March.

Take note: If you're wrongfully arrested (due to a court's clerical error), shackled by wrists and ankles to a pole for 12 hours, while your children are left alone in a highway parking lot, and are declared "truly innocent and injured" by the Court of Special Appeals... you can't sue anyone. Sorry! So, you know, make sure that doesn't happen, okay?

Documents in the murder of UVA student Yeardly Love are unsealed. Ex-boyfriend George Huguely V admits kicking in her door and getting in an "altercation" with her. Was the murder planned?

An Ellicott City man convicted by the Federales of securities fraud will get a new trial.

Was anyone else surprised that the Baltimore Sun didn't have an article about the beheading verdict being upheld? From what I recall there was a real fear that their conviction might be overturned.

15 Years for Doubly Deadly Stabbing Spree

From the SAO:
At a hearing today Judge Pamela J. White imposed the agreed-upon sentence for Steven J. Lashley, 32, of the 2000 block of Paulette Road: 30 years in prison suspend all but 15 years, two concurrent five year prison terms and three years probation.

Lashley pled guilty to second-degree murder and two counts of second-degree assault May 19, 2010. The State agreed to the plea when the State’s main witness, a woman previously convicted of manslaughter, told the parties that she intended to invoke her Fifth Amendment right and would not testify if called as a witness.

On September 22, 2005 Lashley stabbed three people in the 400 block of Water Street at Commerce Street following an altercation in a nearby New York Fried Chicken restaurant. Stanley Thomas, Jr was killed and two others were injured.
