A former Howard County teacher was sentenced to five years in prison last night for sending one of his students sexually explicit e-mails, text messages and photos, and exposing his genitals to her in a classroom after school. Concluding a protracted, emotional hearing that dragged into the night, Judge Richard Bernhardt declared that former Glenelg High School teacher Joseph S. Ellis had "betrayed the trust that was bestowed upon him as a schoolteacher." Bernhardt likened the crime to "a shepherd victimizing sheep."

Unless you’re having it on ice in a cocktail glass with a pink umbrella, sex on the beach is illegal in Ocean City. And most other public beaches. It’s a touchy subject and I hesitate to even bring it up, but it seems some folks aren’t aware that you could be arrested for lewd behavior, indecent exposure, perverted practice, disorderly conduct and other charges, if you’re discovered doing something illicit on the beach, no matter how beautiful the moonlight. And it doesn't matter what kind of sex it is - still illegal.

"We need to understand what circumstances led to this incident," said an archdiocese spokesman ("Archdiocese investigating priest: He's suspended indefinitely after arrest on charges of indecent exposure," Jan. 24). Celibacy, that unnatural restriction, is forced on clergymen by the male-dominated Vatican. That's what led to these circumstances. Until the Catholic Church understands that it must change, these circumstances will lead other clergy to expose the church to embarrassment as a result of their natural desires.

A Howard County police officer, who was acquitted on a charge of exposing himself to a county 911 dispatcher last year, has left the force, according to police. Edward Thatcher's last day of service was Nov. 11. Police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn said that she could not reveal whether Thatcher was fired or resigned because that information is part of his personnel file. In October, Howard County Circuit Judge Diane O. Leasure found Thatcher not guilty of the charge of indecent exposure, citing insufficient evidence.
