After serving nearly 40 years in prison for a fatal shooting, Walter Lomax was released in 2006 amid questions about his trial. On Wednesday, he celebrated another milestone in his case, as prosecutors formally dropped the charges against him. Lomax, now 67, was sent to prison after being found guilty in the 1968 death of Robert L. Brewer, a night manager of a Brooklyn food market. A judge commuted his sentence eight years ago, citing problems with the evidence that led to his conviction.

When Sam Lomax saw Adrienne McCray's picture hanging on the wall in North County High's Hall of Fame a year ago, he asked coach Ed Harte what he would have to do to have his picture mounted there, too.Harte replied: become a state champion. Lomax then made it his goal.Two months later, Lomax became state champion in the 800 meters for indoor track and had his picture hung besides McCray's. And in May, Lomax became the 400-meter state champion for track and field.The senior is trying to follow in the footsteps of McCray -- a three-time state track champion, the 1992 Anne Arundel County Sun Track Athlete of The Year and the fifth-ranked hurdler in the country last year.

To the victim's family, Walter Lomax is - and will always be - the man who 39 years ago shot to death Robert L. Brewer, the night manager of a Brooklyn food market. To the defendant's friends and family, Walter Lomax is a poet and an activist - a man who was wrongly convicted and spent 39 years behind bars before a Baltimore judge freed him by suspending his life prison sentence. Those two groups, equally fervent in their beliefs, gathered again yesterday in Baltimore Circuit Court.

After the first robbery at Killer Trash, a kitschy vintage clothing store on Broadway in Fells Point, clerk Brittany Byers was shaken. The second time, she and other employees were told to lock the door behind customers. When the same man came back a third time, Byers' boyfriend whacked him about a dozen times in the head and arms with a baseball bat before the robber scurried away. But the man was not easily deterred. He had struck earlier that day and was in the middle of a string of 17 robberies of city business in 22 days, police say. Six blocks away at Tuxedo Zone, Rod Thompson, a former police officer, was held up after measuring the same man and allowing him to try on pants.

On Sept. 6, 2006, Mark Lomax, 37, jobless and destitute, a ninth-grade dropout, a string of robbery and drug convictions behind him, was sentenced to 21 years in prison for holding up the same Subway sandwich shop on North Charles Street three times in eight days. After serving less than four years behind bars, he walked out of prison in June. Four weeks later, city police said, Lomax, who is now 39, started another robbery spree. They suspect him of robbing 17 shops and restaurants, all this month and most in Mount Vernon, Fells Point and downtown, including the same Subway shop he had targeted three times in 2005.

Brittany Lomax earned respectable grades and stayed out of trouble. But dealing with family crises such as a heroin-addicted mother and homelessness left little time to ponder college. When she began high school four years ago, her goal was to graduate and get a job. That changed three years ago when she enrolled in a college-prep program at Dundalk High School. "Now, instead of thinking that I want a job, I know that I can have a career," said Lomax, 17, who recently won a $20,000 scholarship, a laptop from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and about $15,000 in annual grants for four years of college.

Jerry Miller reached a milestone this week, but I'm willing to bet it's one he'd prefer didn't involve him at all. Miller was arrested as a suspect in the kidnapping, rape and robbery of a Chicago woman in 1981. He was convicted in 1982, sentenced to 45 years and paroled in 2006 as a registered sex offender. Miller had to wear an electronic monitoring device, couldn't answer his door for Halloween trick-or-treaters or leave his job when he took a lunch break. Then DNA testing intervened.

Jurors are expected to begin deliberations today in the trial of three alleged gang members on charges including attempted murder, kidnapping and carjacking. Larhonda Lomax testified Friday that she was abducted from a white Jeep Cherokee she was driving Jan. 9 of last year, as she arrived at her home near Perring Parkway in Baltimore County. She said she was driven to a house on Normal Avenue in the city, and tied up and interrogated about the whereabouts of her husband, Charles Byers.

Most of Walter Lomax's 59 years have been spent in state prisons for a killing that it's unlikely he would have been convicted of today. A judge's decision last week to free him was a grim reminder of the fallibility of the criminal justice system and a testament to the resilience of an imprisoned man whose profession of innocence never wavered. The Lomax case also brings to mind former Gov. Parris N. Glendening's ban on paroling lifers, which disregarded the possibility of an inmate's having genuinely reformed; it's an inequity that Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has since corrected.

When her 20-year- old daughter describes people with her current favorite label of "random," Baltimore Circuit Judge Gale E. Rasin isn't quite sure what she means. "But I started to come to the conclusion - and it's pretty obvious - that life is random," Rasin told me yesterday, during a break in a busy day of deciding who should be jailed and who should get a second, third or 10th chance. "In Mr. Lomax's case, the randomness of the events that led him to be in prison for 39 years is extraordinary."
