A suspended Baltimore police officer pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree assault Friday and agreed to a 10-year prison term, with all but 18 months suspended, for firing his service weapon at two men as they drove away from a Canton bar last year. Patrick A. Dotson, 28, is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 30. As part of the plea deal, Dotson will spend only 18 months in prison, though he could be forced to serve the full 10 years if he violates probation after he's released.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. sent a signed extradition warrant to Kent County officials yesterday, ensuring that former Eastern Shore basketball star Carlton Dotson will return to Texas to face a murder charge. The warrant, which Ehrlich signed Tuesday, stipulates that Texas officials must extradite Dotson within 30 days, said Aja C. Foster, a spokeswoman for the office of the Maryland Secretary of State. Dotson's attorneys initially contested their client's return to Texas, where he was indicted last month in the killing of a Baylor University teammate.

HURLOCK -- The second-most famous person from this tiny Eastern Shore town is Brandi Helmer, 20, who is currently serving scrambled eggs at the Hurlock Family Restaurant. Brandi is famous not for her scrambled eggs, but for her friendship with Carlton Dotson, with whom she used to go to high school. Everybody in America may get 15 minutes of fame, but in Hurlock, this could be worth a lifetime for Brandi. Already, she has her name in newspapers. She is pursued by reporters from television networks and cable channels.

The estranged wife of former Baylor basketball player Carlton Dotson said yesterday that coaches knew about his increasing mental troubles because they arranged for him to see a therapist this spring. And she said her mother told his coaches that he was "delusional" and needed help. Melissa Kethley, who had separated from Dotson in April, also said in an interview that she witnessed Dotson and other Baylor basketball players faking drug tests and Dotson told her he often got cash from his assistant coaches.

CHESTERTOWN - Former Eastern Shore basketball star Carlton Dotson was arrested here last night on Texas charges that he killed his missing Baylor University teammate and friend Patrick Dennehy, authorities said. Dotson's arrest came more than a month after Dennehy, 21, was reported missing, sparking a nationwide investigation in which Dotson was the central figure. Dotson, being escorted from a court commissioner's office last night, told an Associated Press reporter: "I didn't confess to anything.

On his sixth wedding anniversary and two days before he and his wife were due to close on their first home, Baltimore City police Officer Patrick A. Dotson was brought into a courtroom with his hands shackled after spending a night in Central Booking, accused of two counts of attempted murder. As his sister spoke to retired District Court Judge Charlotte M. Cooksey about his military service in Afghanistan and his role as a father, the weight of the circumstances appeared to catch up to him. Dotson's face turned red, and he fought to hold back tears.

Police said Officer Patrick A.

The intended target, prosecutors say, was Lee Dotson, a member of an O'Donnell Heights gang engaged in a vicious, weeks-long turf war. But the bullet hit his 16-year-old girlfriend, Estefany Gonzalez. Dotson, the only eyewitness to the crime, refused to name her killer. Yesterday Juan Hernandez, the man prosecutors believe killed the former Patterson High School student, entered an Alford plea - an acknowledgment that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict but not an admission of guilt - to second-degree murder and handgun charges.

Brian Edward Dotson, 45, of Bel Air pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Baltimore to sexually exploiting a minor to produce child pornography and possession of child pornography.

SEAFORD, Del. - Based on the thirdhand account of a police informant here, former Eastern Shore basketball star Carlton Dotson has been publicly implicated in the disappearance of his Baylor University teammate. It's evidence that would never be admissible in court, but as a result of its disclosure, a 21-year-old with no criminal record has been identified as a possible killer in newspapers and on television shows across the country. On the surface, Dotson's plight is reminiscent of two other men who were implicated - but not charged - in high-profile crimes: Richard Jewell, who was wrongly implicated in the 1996 Olympics bombing; and Dr. Steven J. Hatfill, the scientist who has been identified by Attorney General John Ashcroft as a "person of interest" in the 2001 anthrax attacks.

It's becoming easier to forget that Jonathan Ogden is a rookie playing a new position. Each time he flattens a lineman or repels a pass rusher, which happened often last night, the Ravens' first-round draft choice looks more like a first-rate professional.An All-America tackle at UCLA, Ogden is making the switch to left guard look simpler with every snap. And though the Ravens may not win every game, he looks primed to win most of the battles.A week earlier, he had dominated Ray Agnew of the New York Giants, blowing him off the line of scrimmage as if he were a defensive back.

Bashing of Orioles VPs doesn't make any sense The absurd nature of the recent bashing of Orioles vice presidents Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan by letter writers necessitated a reaction. Beattie and Flanagan have acquired Miguel Tejada, Javy Lopez, Bruce Chen, David Newhan, Todd Williams and Rafael Palmeiro. Correct me if I'm wrong, but these guys are all playing pretty well. As for missing out on other free agents in the offseason, the Orioles cannot be expected to open their pocketbooks like the Red Sox and Yankees.
