A 38-year-old city man, who shot into a crowd two decades ago killing two people, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Tuesday for violating probation  by assaulting an officer and again brandishing a firearm in public, the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office announced. Ronald Brady Jr. was released from prison in May of 2011, after serving nearly 19 years for murder and illegal handgun use. On Christmas, he was arrested again for pointing a gun at a group of people outside a northeast Baltimore bar then scuffling with police, who recovered the firearm and drugs from him, prosecutors said.

A person wanted by Baltimore police for questioning about the shooting death of 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott surrendered Thursday on a probation violation warrant, law enforcement sources said. The person is considered a suspect, and police hope by taking him off the streets that witnesses may come forward with information that can help detectives close the case, the sources said. The warrant was issued this week for a probation violation in a previous, unrelated case, court records show.

Former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon could face the loss of her city pension — and possibly prison time — after being charged with a probation violation connected to a plea deal she struck on perjury and theft allegations. Dixon was $13,640 behind on payments toward a $45,000 charitable donation she agreed to make as part of the deal, according to records maintained by the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. The new legal trouble threatens to derail what some had speculated was a nascent political comeback by the former mayor.

Baltimore City Community College has been warned that its accreditation could be in jeopardy amid concerns about its focus, goals and effectiveness, just two years after the college was taken off probation over fixing problems with its assessment of student learning.

The action was made public Thursday.

Maryland linebacker Abner Logan has been placed on disciplinary probation by the university until April 2015, the school announced Friday. While on probation, the rising redshirt sophomore can attend class, practice and work out with the team, but he will not be eligible to play in games. He will have an opportunity to petition for removal of the conditions after Oct. 10. That would be midway through Maryland's season. Logan, a native of Cambridge, Mass.,  had been suspended  this semester for an undisclosed violation of team rules, coach Randy Edsall announced in early April.

The commission that awards accreditation to higher education institutions has placed Baltimore City Community College on probation because of concerns about the school's ability to evaluate student learning. The Middle States Commission on Higher Education last month announced that it will review the school's accreditation after questions were raised over the "assessment of student learning" which "demonstrates that, at graduation, or other appropriate points, the institution's students have knowledge, skills, and competencies consistent with institutional and appropriate higher education goals," according to the commission's website.

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education removed Baltimore City Community College from probation on Friday after the college made progress in assessing student performance. If the college had not made changes, the Middle States Commission could have yanked the school's accreditation. Last July, Middle States said BCCC lacked any comprehensive method for assessing student achievement. The president, Carolane Williams, said in a statement that "the challenges from MSCHE have enabled BCCC to emerge as a stronger institution.

— Ravens running back Ray Rice rejected a plea offer Thursday that would spare him jail time on charges that he assaulted his then-fiancee, and instead asked the court to put him in a program under which he could eventually clear his record. With his status in the NFL still undetermined, Rice made his first court appearance since being charged by an Atlantic County grand jury with one count of third-degree aggravated assault. He is accused of knocking Janay Palmer unconscious during an altercation in the Revel Casino in February, an incident that authorities say was caught on video by a security camera.

A veteran Baltimore police sergeant received probation Friday after being convicted for failing to act during an assault on a drug suspect. Sgt. Marinos N. Gialamas said that it was "a split-second decision" that had ended with him standing before a circuit court judge. "This is the last place I ever thought I'd be," the 19-year veteran said before he choked up and was unable to continue. Anthony Williams, another officer who was convicted of assault in the case, received a jail term this week.

Baltimore political consultant Julius Henson appealed Wednesday a Circuit Court ruling that he violated his probation by running for a state Senate seat. His lawyer said Henson's case is bolstered by Wednesday's ruling by the state Court of Special Appeals, which held that former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold could run for office during his probation for a misconduct conviction. In that case, the appeals court said that while judges have broad power to sentence, the Maryland Board of Elections has the ultimate power to determine who is eligible to run for office.

Baltimore Circuit Judge Emanuel Brown ruled Thursday that veteran political consultant Julius Henson violated probation by running for an East Baltimore state Senate seat and sentenced him to four months in jail. But Brown suspended the sentence pending an appeal - and his decision effectively allows Henson to keep running in the meantime. Henson promptly told reporters he intends to do that. "I will continue to run," Henson told reporters outside the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse downtown.

Maryland State Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr. this week denied claims from veteran political consultant Julius Henson that Miller was influencing a violation of probation case against Henson.  "It's not true," Miller said after learning of Henson's statements to reporters at a news conference. "I don't know Julius Henson. I don't think he and I have ever talked. Absolutely not. We've never talked. I wouldn't know a thing about his district, or him. I don't know who is probation agent is -- I don't even know who his judge is. I'm not involved in the case at all. " Henson, an East Baltimore Democrat, on Thursday formally filed to run for a Maryland Senate seat even though the state says that may violate the terms of his probation. Henson, 64, has vowed to “retire” longtime Sen. Nathaniel J. McFadden, whom he plans to challenge in the June 24 Democratic primary.

A Pasadena man charged with 134 counts of animal cruelty was placed on one year of probation last week after he said he tried to keep the animals at his home in an effort to rescue them. Shane Christopher Taylor was given probation before judgment by Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Paul A. Hackner on five counts, which will allow Taylor, 21, to seek to have his record expunged if he meets all of the judge's conditions. Those conditions include not having more than one animal at a time and continuing treatment for mental health issues, said prosecutor Kimberly DiPietro.

The owners of a Reisterstown store have been given probation after allegedly purchasing stolen jewelry taken in a rash of burglaries in Baltimore and Carroll counties last year. Baltimore County police last year cited the case of Crown Jewelry as an example of the easy market for stolen metals. Authorities said in November that they recovered hundreds of pieces of gold and silver jewelry linked to a string of nearly 30 area burglaries. A number of those pieces were recovered from Crown Jewelry, which had not reported the purchases to state regulators as required, authorities said.

A Baltimore circuit judge on Tuesday struck the convictions of a neighborhood watchman who beat a teenager, saying at a brief hearing that he had complied well with the terms of his probation. Eliyahu Werdesheim, a former member of a Shomrim patrol in Park Heights, was convicted last summer of wrongful imprisonment and assault in the beating of Corey Ausby. The case revealed tensions between some members of the black and Jewish communities in Northwest Baltimore. Werdesheim is white and Ausby is black, and the 2010 incident attracted comparisons to the fatal shooting in Florida of Trayvon Martin.
