A West Baltimore man captured on video attacking a police officer on New Year's Eve was convicted of second-degree assault last month in a rare bit of swift justice in the city. Manuel Imel, 40, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, with all but one year of the term suspended, for tackling an officer who was in the middle of arresting a second man. A recording of the incident was widely viewed online at WorldStarHipHop.com. It shows two officers trying to handcuff a man in the street as a crowd watches, apparently upset.

An Anne Arundel County judge who four years ago shortened the 15-year prison term of a man who had sexually assaulted two girls, ages 5 and 9, ordered the man this week to serve the remaining years of the prison term. Karl L. Johnson, 25, of Severna Park pleaded guilty Monday to violating his probation, according to court records. He was convicted this year in District Court in connection with two domestic cases, a spokeswoman for the state's attorney's office said. Prosecutors criticized Circuit Judge Ronald A. Silkworth in 1999 for releasing Johnson early from prison, where he was serving seven years of a 15-year sentence for rape and battery, and placing him on home detention.

An attorney for former Anne Arundel County Councilman Daryl D. Jones has appealed a judge's recent ruling, in an attempt to regain his seat when he finishes serving time in federal prison later this year. A county Circuit Court judge ruled last month that Jones, who began serving a five-month federal prison term in January for failing to file income taxes, was required to live in his district during the full duration of his term in office. The County Council removed Jones, a Severn Democrat, from the council, arguing that although he had a permanent home in his district, he violated the county charter when he left to serve the prison term.

Former state Sen. Thomas L. Bromwell Sr. will be allowed to start his seven-year prison term for bribery in July, so that his wife can serve a substantial portion of her prison sentence first, a federal judge ordered yesterday. The Bromwells requested the so-called staggered sentencing so that the Baltimore County Democrat could stay home with two of their youngest children while Mary Patricia Bromwell, 44, starts her prison term in January. Sentenced to a year and a day in prison for her role in a bribery scheme, the wife of the former state senator could receive two months off her sentence for "good time" credit and might be able to serve a portion of the remaining period in a halfway house, according to lawyers in the case.
