Carroll man sentenced on sodomy charge

September 21, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A 57-year-old Carroll County man received time served for his conviction on a sodomy charge involving a mentally disabled 18-year-old woman whom he kept at his home near Mount Airy for three days in November 2000.

Carroll County Circuit Judge Michael M. Galloway found Guy Gordon Marsh Jr. guilty in October last year on the single count of sodomy as part of a plea agreement. The agreement also called for Marsh to register as a sex offender.

Yesterday, the judge credited Marsh with the 212 days he spent in jail until June 2001, suspending the balance of an eight-year prison term. Galloway also ordered Marsh to serve five years' probation, be evaluated and undergo any recommended treatment, stay away from the victim, abstain from alcohol, and complete 100 hours of community service.

According to charging documents, the victim left her home in the 15000 block of Liberty Road after arguing with her mother about 8:30 p.m. Nov. 9, 2000. She and Marsh called her mother several times later that weekend from convenience store telephones in Carroll, documents stated.

Police located the victim and Marsh on Nov. 12.
