Charged with policing inmates in the Baltimore City Detention Center, correctional officer Jennifer Owens admitted to doing the opposite Tuesday. Owens, who worked as a correctional officer in the Baltimore jail from 2007 to 2013, pleaded guilty to a federal racketeering conspiracy charge Tuesday, accepting a plea agreement that dropped two other criminal counts. Prosecutors say Owens smuggled in marijuana and prescription drugs for a gang leader who fathered two of her children while incarcerated.

As I was looking through the latest Sun Magazine and reading "50 women to watch in Baltimore" (July 28), I came across a stunning choice: Sheila Dixon. I was completely upset that a woman who had been convicted on embezzlement and faced perjury charges (but avoided them under a plea agreement) was included in this group of women who are upstanding individuals in the local community. Are our values so skewed that we neglect the fact that this woman was scolded for "leaving office in total disgrace" and that she would "carry a badge of dishonor for the rest of her life" for stealing gift cards earmarked for needy families?

At home in the middle of the day Wednesday, it turned out that Natasha Bates was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Relatives say Bates, 40, was killed when a gunman opened fire on her brother, 34-year-old Dwayne Robinson Webb, at about noon while he was visiting her home in the unit block of N. Fulton Ave. in West Baltimore. Since the death of their mother, Bates, who recently was diagnosed with cancer, had looked out for Webb and their other siblings. On Thursday, relatives were putting together funeral plans and had set up a table under a brightly-colored umbrella to display framed pictures next to a lit candle.

A Port Deposit man pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges of possessing child pornography. According to the plea agreement, on January 30, 2011, police seized a laptop computer, desktop computer, camera, hard drive and other digital media from Michael Dean Ragan Jr., 30, during a search in an unrelated counterfeit currency investigation, according to a news release from the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office. Ragan later pleaded guilty to state counterfeit charges. A subsequent forensic examination of the items seized during the search found approximately 335 images and 17 videos of minors, including prepubescent minors, engaged in sexually explicit conduct, including acts of sadism, masochism of other depictions of violence.

Nearly seven years after she admitted that she plotted to have her boss killed in his Glen Burnie office to cover up thefts from his dental practice, Shontay Joyner Hickman had her life sentence reduced Thursday to 40 years in prison for testifying against her cousin. The reduction, in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, was part of a sealed plea agreement in which Hickman, 38, of Baltimore, pleaded guilty last year to first-degree murder in the slaying of Dr. Albert Woonho Ro, who hailed from a family well-known in the area's Korean-American community.

Former Maryland congressional candidate Wendy W. Rosen pleaded guilty Friday to voting illegally in two elections and will serve five years probation and pay a $5,000 fine. The 58-year-old Rosen, who won a Democratic primary last year to challenge Republican Rep. Andy Harris in Maryland's 1st Congressional District, cast ballots in 2006 and 2010 in Baltimore County even though her legal residence was in Florida. The revelation last September ended her run. The sentence is the result of a plea agreement with the Office of the State Prosector.
