A Waldorf man convicted of trying to kill his pregnant girlfriend, a Crofton hairdresser, was given a life sentence Tuesday by an Anne Arundel County judge. Prosecutors contended Charles Brandon Martin, 33, sent a letter from his jail cell after he was convicted in the 2008 shooting that disabled Jodi Torok that sought to have the man acquitted of being the triggerman killed. Jail officials intercepted the letter and gave it to prosecutors. The letter was authenticated by a Maryland State Police expert, over the objection of the defense, at the hearing before Judge Pamela L. North.

Between Jonathan Pollard, Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden, which one is the most dangerous to our country? Mr. Pollard took secrets and gave them to our ally, Israel, and is serving 25 years as of this writing. Messrs. Manning and Snowden gave information about what our government was doing to protect us from our enemies. One is on trial for treason, and the other is a coward who is hiding trying not to be caught. He should be caught and brought to trial. I have no reason to be afraid if the government listens to me on the phone.

Donald Edwin Barton Sr. opened his Northeast Baltimore liquor store three weeks ago with a warning from a friend, Monte Brown: "I told him he had to be careful. The previous owner wore a bulletproof vest."But Mr. Barton apparently thought the .25-caliber handgun he kept behind the counter at Northway Liquors offered enough protection from the armed robbers that area merchants say are all too common.It wasn't. The 49-year-old Glenmore Avenue resident was fatally shot Thursday night when he exchanged gunfire with a man who robbed his store.

ATLANTA - Mississippi's attorney general has challenged a judge's decision to grant bail to former Ku Klux Klan member Edgar Ray Killen, who was freed from prison Friday, less than two months into his 60-year sentence. Killen was convicted in June of three counts of manslaughter in the 1964 deaths of civil rights workers Andrew Goodman, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner. In an emergency petition to the state Supreme Court, submitted Monday night, Attorney General Jim Hood argued that Killen, 80, remains a violent and dangerous man. Hood said that a Killen relative made death threats against Circuit Judge Marcus Gordon and that an anonymous caller threatened to bomb the courthouse.

WASHINGTON -- Rush Limbaugh has made it into the homes and automobiles of much of America but getting into the Pentagon is different.Although the ultraconservative talk show host might seem at ease among the nation's military forces, the Pentagon has banned his programs from its Armed Forces Radio and Television networks because Mr. Limbaugh "presents only one point of view" -- not to mention that GIs apparently would rather watch sports and listen to...

LONDON -- A man described as "a determined and dedicated terrorist" who headed a British sleeper cell plotting to destroy financial institutions in the United States was sentenced yesterday to life in prison. Dhiren Barot, who was also accused of engineering plans to explode a radioactive "dirty bomb" and set off gas-canister explosions in London parking garages, cannot be released for at least 40 years under the sentence handed down after he pleaded guilty to one count of murder conspiracy.

President-elect Barack Obama had hoped an economic stimulus package would be the first piece of legislation he would sign upon moving into the Oval Office. But endorsing a resolution to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay more than qualifies as a significant first for the incoming 44th president. The symbolism of that action will reverberate across oceans and in foreign capitals, where America's image and reputation as a nation of laws have suffered egregious harm from the continued existence of this unjust prison.

The trial of Stephen H. Oken ended last week with the passing of the sentence that he must die in the gas chamber for the murder of Dawn Marie Garvin, a young woman Oken had tricked into letting him into her apartment on the pretense of his need to make an urgent telephone call. Whether one believes in the death penalty or not, no one can quarrel with Judge James T. Smith's searing portrayal of Oken -- who had already committed at least one other murder and awaits trial for yet another -- as "a very evil and dangerous man."

There's nothing like locking the prison door after the dangerous criminal has done his worst. It is tantalizing to think that if John F. Thanos had been held in prison the 18 months remaining on his sentence, three people might still be alive. But he would have gotten out eventually, and his history shows he was a dangerous man.State officials at first denied they had used "good time" from a sentence imposed after a 1969 rape to help justify Thanos' early release, but now say they did. Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. noted that Thanos was released from that sentence in 1986.
