TOWSON — Goucher president plans to retire in May '94

TOWSON -- Rhoda M. Dorsey, the first woman president of Goucher College, has announced her retirement from the private liberal arts school, effective May 1994.

Ms. Dorsey, who became the eighth president of the then all-women's college in 1974, said she made her announcement in advance to facilitate the planning for choosing her successor. Ms. Dorsey said she looks forward to "some long-awaited leisure time" after retirement.

Ms. Dorsey serves on the boards of the United States Fidelity and Guaranty Co., the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. of Maryland, the First National Bank of Maryland, the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the Independent College Fund of Maryland and Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

The school's board of trustees will form a presidential search committee next spring, according to Bruce D. Alexander, Goucher board chairman.

Woman raped, stabbed in West Baltimore home

Police said the attack occurred in the woman's apartment in the 4900 block of Challedon Road. The woman's young daughter was home at the time but was not hurt.

Child molester gets 20-year prison term


TOWSON -- A 34-year-old White Marsh man, convicted last year of molesting his 12-year-old stepdaughter and then convicted in July of sexually molesting his two young sons, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

In sentencing the defendant, Baltimore County Circuit Judge Barbara K. Howe disregarded sentencing guidelines prepared by the Department of Parole and Probation that called for six months to six years in jail. The judge said she disagreed with the sentencing recommendation because it stated there was no injury to the children, when in fact she felt the injury to be severe.

The defendant was convicted of two counts of third-degree sexual offense July 28.

The defendant, who is not being identified to protect the children's identity, declined to speak at yesterday's sentencing hearing.

Convicted drug dealer faces 45-year jail term


TOWSON -- Roland Walter Mazzone, 34, the former manager of the Valley View Inn in Parkville, was convicted yesterday in Baltimore County Circuit Court of conspiring to import, possess and sell cocaine.

Mazzone of the 4100 block of Glen Park Road, Perry Hall, faces a maximum sentence of 45 years in prison. The jury of six men and six women deliberated for about one hour before convicting him of four separate drug charges.

After the verdict, his attorney, Russell White, asked Judge John Grason Turnbull II to allow Mazzone to remain free on $250,000 bail until his sentencing in November. The judge, noting Mazzone's prior conviction for conspiracy to distribute cocaine, revoked the bail.

Mazzone, identified as a high-level drug dealer in Baltimore County, was one of 17 people arrested in November as state police and police from Baltimore and Harford counties culminated a 2 1/2 -year narcotics investigation.
