A Crofton teenager was sentenced to 50 years in prison Thursday for raping a 7-year-old girl, in an attack that outraged a suburban Anne Arundel County community. Circuit Judge William C. Mulford II told David B. Raszewski that his actions were "beyond disturbing" and that there was "no appropriate sentence" to rectify the damage to the young girl and her family. "It approaches a level of depravity which shocks this court," Mulford said. "It's horrific." The sentence, life in prison with all but five decades suspended, was above state sentencing guidelines of 15 to 25 years.

Bradley Manning, the junior Army analyst convicted of espionage for leaking thousands of classified documents, was sentenced to 35 years in prison Wednesday, reigniting a debate over how far the government should go to punish those who disclose secret information. The sentence was far less than the 60-year imprisonment military prosecutors had sought and the 90-year maximum sentence the 20 convictions against him carried. Manning will appeal the ruling and will be eligible for parole after serving seven years at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., his attorney said.

Circuit Court Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr.'s two-year sentence of Pamela Snowhite Davis for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana can best be described as malicious. An outspoken advocate for the legalization of marijuana, Davis is clearly being punished for espousing views that Judge Beck finds offensive.A trial jury in Westminster convicted Davis of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a common nuisance. The court's pre-sentencing report determined an appropriate punishment for the woman, a first-time offender, would be a minimum sentence of probation up to a maximum sentence of one year imprisonment.

Child predators would face at least 15 years in prison without the possibility of parole under a new measure given preliminary approval Friday morning by the Maryland House of Delegates. The move came as delegates gave their final OK to two other sex offender reforms -- eliminating good-time prison credits and requiring lifetime supervision for violent and repeat offenders. On Thursday night, the House Judiciary Committee signed off on the extended sentence for child predators. Anyone convicted of the second-degree rape or second-degree sex offense of a child under 13 would be subject to a mandatory prison term of 15 years without parole, a more than a threefold increase from the current penalty of five years with the possibility of parole.
