Ex-teacher gets prison term for assault of girl

October 10, 2003|By Lisa Goldberg | Lisa Goldberg,SUN STAFF

A former Dundalk high school teacher who sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl he met on the Internet on New Year's Day was sentenced yesterday to four years in prison for a crime a Howard County judge called "every suburban parent's worst nightmare."

Charles Levi Maxwell received a 20-year sentence, with all but four years suspended, and five years' probation for attempted rape and sexual offense convictions from Howard Circuit Judge Dennis M. Sweeney.

Maxwell, an admitted sex addict, was living in Timonium at the time of the assault but now owns a home in Harrisburg, Pa. After his release from prison, Maxwell, 34, will have to register as a sexually violent offender and pay $875 toward his victim's counseling.
