Prosecutors dropped all but the most serious traffic offenses - those carrying jail time - against Thomas Meighan Jr. on Tuesday as the investigation continues into whether the Elkridge man can be charged with vehicular manslaughter in the hit-and-run death of a Johns Hopkins student. Some said the move could be meant to avoid a quirk in Maryland law that invokes double jeopardy if a defendant pays a traffic fine and is later criminally charged on that underlying offense. But prosecutors declined to comment on the strategy.

A 44-year-old Laurel man who ran a red light, causing a crash that killed an Ellicott City computer consultant who had just gotten good news about his wife's long-awaited pregnancy, was sentenced yesterday to eight years in prison. Robert Ice, still hobbled by the wreck Sept. 10, 2001, and using crutches, apologized for a crash he said he has trouble remembering. His lawyer argued for probation, saying that "a moment ... of inattention" led to Kenneth Weaver Parker's death. Howard Circuit Judge James B. Dudley, who convicted Ice, of the 300 block of Brock Bridge Road, of auto manslaughter in March, said it was Ice's "gross negligence" that killed Parker.

ANNAPOLIS -- Unless they violate shipping regulations or commit an act of gross negligence, those who cause oil spills in Maryland will pay no more than $10 million for the damage they cause others under the terms of a bill passed yesterday by a House committee.The Environmental Matters Committee agreed by a vote of 16-4 that total liability should be limited to $10 million for damage that is not directly environmental, such as loss of a waterman's equipment. Such liability is unlimited under current law.Liability for containing and cleaning up environmental damage would remain unlimited under House Bill 683.The Senate passed a related bill last week.

A Carroll County Circuit Court judge has dismissed a $2 million lawsuit filed by a Hampstead mother who alleged that her son was sexually assaulted and harassed several times last year by another pupil at Spring Garden Elementary School. The lawsuit - filed against the county commissioners, the school board and Spring Garden's acting assistant principal, Karen Rogers - contended that school officials failed to protect the fifth-grade boy from repeated sexual harassment despite having promised to prevent the boys from being alone together.
