Baltimore prosecutors have resurrected charges dropped six years ago against a convicted sex offender, a rare move that comes as the man's latest trial is set to begin after a series of acquittals on recent accusations. Nelson Bernard Clifford, who served prison time for a sex assault conviction in 1997, has faced three rape trials in recent years after authorities said he was linked to the crimes through DNA. Clifford has taken the stand in each case and testified that the encounters were consensual, and prosecutors have obtained convictions for lesser property crimes.

Susan Burke, the attorney representing the victim of an alleged rape at the U.S. Naval Academy, recently filed an action in federal court to bar the academy's superintendent from deciding whether the case proceeds to a court-martial ( "Lawsuit seeks removal of Naval Academy superintendent from sex assault case," Sept. 5). The suit alleges he should be removed due to bias because, among other things, he did not make the hearing officer stop abusive questioning of the alleged victim.

The awkwardness was out in full force, affecting just about everyone in Miami. Nikki shows up high to a crime scene and is kicked out by Masuka (we still don't know why Nikki is even in this season). Vogel and her son, Saxon, reunite for breakfast to discuss how he won't stop killing innocent people (reminding her that he killed her other son). Dexter, Harrison and Hannah plan to move to Argentina, to be as family-like as possible when two of them are serial killers. Dexter and Batista have a bro-hug.

How would you feel if you were drugged and the last thing you saw before you slid into oblivion was your ex-girlfriend serial killer (who you had put in jail) striding toward you? I think it's safe to say -- not good. Hannah McKay makes quite an entrance at the end of the episode, doing just that, but there were many other cliffhangers tonight. Sweet Harrison confronts Dexter about lying, pulling out his stuffed toy dog that Dexter said was lost -- the one covered in the blood of Andrew Briggs, whom Dexter had killed.

Two men were shot – one fatally -- in the East Baltimore neighborhood of McElderry Park early Friday morning, city police reported. One man was shot in the head and died at a local hospital. A second was shot in the back and survived, police said. He was listed in stable condition. They were found in the 2700 block Jefferson Street shortly after 1:30 a.m. Police do not have any suspects or motives. At the intersection of Jefferson Street and North Belnord Avenue later in the morning, police investigators were gone but crime scene tape remained tied to rowhouse window air conditioners.

The episode begins with a twist, showing a taping of Harry Morgan talking to Dr. Vogel as his therapist. It displays in vivid color the beginning of Harry's understanding of what Dexter truly is -- and Dr. Vogel's hand in shaping his youth. She helped create Harry's Code, but Dexter doesn't trust her just yet. I wouldn't either; if she wants to play with young psychopaths, then clearly she's got issues of her own. Especially since her show-and-tell isn't just for fun; she wants Dexter to find someone.

The premiere of the final season of "Dexter" starts off with a beautiful scene of Dexter flying a kite with his son, Harrison. And it's all downhill from there. Although Dexter's life seems to have improved since LaGuerta's death, there are several indications that this is untrue. He glances forlornly at the orchid his former lover, Hannah McKay, left him before she disappeared. Dexter increasingly has outbursts of anger, even going so far as to choke a man for simply cutting him off on the road.

It took Chris Brown months to return to work after the death of her 17-year-old son. She has left her old home and is still hesitant to look at pictures of the teen. On Monday, a little more than a year after Christopher Brown died, the Baltimore County police officer accused of killing him is set to be tried for manslaughter. And Chris Brown will have to relive her loss through agonizing courtroom testimony. "Now I am faced with all those feelings again," said Brown, who plans to watch as prosecutors try to convict Officer James D. Laboard.

An off-duty Baltimore police officer gave himself up late Tuesday after barricading himself in a home with a toddler in a six-hour standoff that began when he fatally shot a woman, authorities said. Officer James Smith, a 20-year veteran and member of the motorcycle unit, was taken into custody before 9:30 p.m. and was charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday morning, among other charges, according to court records. Police had evacuated residents in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood from their homes during the incident.
