A 30-year-old Columbia man accused of using a brick-sized rock to beat a quadriplegic woman in her bed pleaded guilty yesterday to charges stemming from the attack and faces 30 years in prison. Kevin C. Laster entered an Alford plea to a charge of attempted second-degree murder and a guilty plea to a charge of first-degree assault as court officials assembled potential jurors for trial. An Alford plea, treated as a guilty plea, is not an admission of guilt but a concession that prosecutors could prove their case.

A 30-year-old man convicted of beating a quadriplegic woman and her boyfriend with a brick-sized rock was sentenced yesterday to a 20-year prison term. Kevin C. Laster and his attorney, Rodney Warren, had asked for a suspended sentence that would allow him to attend a "spiritual-based treatment" facility in Los Angeles. But Judge Raymond J. Kane Jr. said the attack on Dorothy Copley and Philip Atzert, her boyfriend, "calls out for punishment." Laster entered an Alford plea to one count of attempted second-degree murder and one count of first-degree assault in September.

A correctional major under investigation for failing to get hospital treatment for a prisoner who died a short time later blamed his actions on strained resources at Baltimore's Central Booking and Intake Center and on the jail's medical staff.In two reports, Maj. Wallace C. Laster wrote that he did all he could to help Daniel Griffin, given the crowding that day at the booking center.Griffin, 53, died while alone in a cell Feb. 12, the day after his wife, Angelina, called police because her husband -- an alcoholic who began to drink heavily after losing his job a year ago -- had threatened to shoot her.Two internal investigations by the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services have found that Laster did not get Griffin to a hospital for treatment for alcohol withdrawal, despite two orders to do so from a physician's assistant and a doctor, according to sources familiar with the investigations.

I've received two questions recently about homeowners' associations, otherwise known as HOAs. An HOA is a private organization comprised of homeowners in a designated community. An HOA collects periodic assessments from its members (the homeowners) and uses the money to maintain common areas within the community. Often, the common areas are merely open spaces that need mowing and landscaping. Sometimes, the common areas are more elaborate, including tot lots, swimming pools and other recreational amenities.
