December 17, 1991|By Sandra Crockett | Sandra Crockett,Baltimore County Bureau of The Sun

Two Baltimore County men accused of terrorizing an Overlea woman and her two daughters for eight hours and forcing her to rob the bank where she worked were found guilty yesterday of rape, kidnapping, burglary and robbery.

Ricky Andrew Bailey and David Wayne Hall, both 30, were convicted in Baltimore County Circuit Court by a jury of 10 women and two men that deliberated for an hour and 15 minutes.

"Justice has been done"

"Justice has been done," the mother said. "They were found guilty. That's what matters. Now we can get on with our life."

The family hugged each other after the verdict was read.

"Now I can sleep in peace," the 16-year-old daughter said.

During the two-day trial, jurors heard the mother described how the men entered her Overlea home and raped her 20-year-old daughter while she and her other daughter were bound with tape in another room.

The men took jewelry and money, then forced the mother to drive them around for hours.

Finally, the men made the mother drive to the Sequoia Federal Savings Bank in the 8000 block of Belair Road and forced her to rob her employer of nearly $19,000 in cash and traveler's checks.

Hall, a resident of the 7800 block of Oakdale Avenue in Rosedale, testified that Bailey had threatened to harm his wife and two small children and later threatened to kill the mother and two daughters if he did not go along with the ordeal.

"He said he would kill my wife"

"He said he would kill my wife if I didn't help him," Hall said.

Sobbing frequently, Hall also denied raping the 20-year-old daughter.

Bailey, of the 1900 block of Haselmere Road in Dundalk, did not testify.

Both men were also found guilty of third-degree sexual offense against the older daughter.

Bailey was found guilty of third-degree sexual offense against the younger daughter. Hall was found not guilty of third-degree sexual offense against the younger daughter.

Both were also convicted of using a handgun in the commission of a felony.

Hall could receive two life sentences plus 160 years.

Bailey could receive two life sentences plus 170 years in addition to being sentenced without the possibility of parole, said prosecutor Scott D. Shellenberger.
