The Republican primary next month should prove lively for every contested race in Carroll County, and the races for the county's seven court positions will be no exception. Only two Democrats are running for court spots - one for clerk of the court and one for register of wills. In contrast, there are 11 Republicans vying for their party's nominations for courthouse jobs, plus three nonpartisan candidates for judgeships. This election marks only the second challenge to any sitting judge in Carroll County in more than 100 years, according to Judge J. Barry Hughes.

Thomas E. Hickman's 20-year reign as Carroll's top prosecutor could come to an end this evening when election officials tally the choices of the county's 852 absentee voters.With all 41 precincts counted, Mr. Hickman trailed Jerry F. Barnes, his Republican primary challenger and one-time employee, by 192 votes. The margin -- less than 2 percent of the more than 12,000 votes cast -- was too slim this morning for either candidate to declare victory or to concede defeat.But Mr. Hickman -- who spent most of last night huddled with supporters at the GOP gathering at Frock's Sunnybrook Farm in Westminster -- hinted in an interview that if Mr. Barnes should win, it would be the fault of the news media.

Outgoing Howard County Sheriff Charles M. Cave has been ordered to reinstate a deputy he fired last year for what Cave said was poor performance. Carroll County Circuit Judge J. Barry Hughes ruled Wednesday that Cave violated the Law Enforcement Officer's Bill of Rights when he terminated Deputy 1st Class Calvin Elliott in October 2005. Cave ordered Elliott fired because of security breaches at the Ellicott City District Court lockup, improper use of a radio, not wearing a gun and gun belt, and improper use of a vehicle, according to a sheriff's department internal memo filed in the court case.

Judge disallows woman's confession of abuseWESTMINSTER -- A Carroll County Circuit Court judge ruled yesterday that a 31-year-old Westminster woman, charged with sexually abusing her 15-year-old foster son, involuntarily confessed to the crime.In a written opinion, Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. granted the woman's request to suppress the taped confession, which prosecutors had planned to use as evidence against her at her pending trial.At a suppression hearing last week, defense attorney J. Barry Hughes argued that the woman's confession to fondling her foster son was obtained only after she declined to speak to Westminster Police Lt. Dean A. Brewer and after she believed that she would receive lenient treatment if she confessed.
