October 04, 1998

An article in Friday's Howard County edition of The Sun incorrectly described the conviction rate of the Howard County state's attorney's office. About 60 percent of the defendants whose cases go to trial are convicted. Other cases, which account for the majority of criminal cases, are typically resolved through plea bargains.

The Sun regrets the error.
