There was a time when it seemed that John Walker Lindh was the lucky one. He actually had a chance to defend himself, in an American court, against terrorism charges (which were dropped). He wasn't locked up in Guantanamo or held incommunicado in a Navy brig. He wasn't tortured. He pleaded guilty in open court to lesser charges stemming from his service in the Afghan army - that is, the army of a government controlled by the Taliban - and was sentenced in October 2002 to 20 years in a federal prison.

Saying that "those who made the laws have an obligation to obey them," a District Court judge in Annapolis sentenced state Del. Donald H. Dwyer Jr. on Tuesday to 30 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to operating a boat while under the influence. Dwyer, 55, a Republican from Pasadena, immediately filed an appeal. The sentence stems from a powerboat collision last summer on the Magothy River involving Dwyer's boat, the Legislator, and another vessel. Several people were injured in the crash, and toxicology tests showed that Dwyer had a blood alcohol level of 0.24 percent, three times the legal limit for being under the influence.

An article in yesterday's editions about two court cases in Towson stated incorrectly that a Rosedale woman was sentenced to three years in jail for having killed her abusive husband. In fact, she was sentenced to two years in prison.The Sun regrets the error.While critics condemned one Baltimore County judge for giving an 18-month jail term to a man who killed his unfaithful wife in a drunken rage, another judge handed a sentence twice as long yesterday to a woman who set her husband on fire after 11 years of alleged physical and mental abuse.

As a federal judge sentenced a Maryland businessman Friday to three years in prison for defrauding two banks of millions of dollars, calling the sentence a substantial penalty levied on a man who previously never had so much as a speeding ticket. U.S. District Judge Benson E. Legg's sentence for Brian I. Satisky, 56, followed federal sentencing guidelines. Satisky could have received up to 51 months in prison for his role in writing bad checks to Carrollton Bank and Baltimore County Savings Bank, falsely inflating his account balances in a scheme known as check kiting.

If a man convicted of second-degree murder is serving 18 months on work release in Baltimore County, why is Richard W. Bollinger serving 20 years for attempted second-degree murder in Carroll County? So asked Bollinger in a letter last week to Carroll County Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr., who sentenced him.Perhaps this convicted Carroll County felon has unwittingly exposed another problem with the lenient sentence that Baltimore County Circuit Court Judge Robert E. Cahill Sr. recently imposed on Kenneth Peacock for murdering his wife.

A state appeals court dismissed yesterday an appeal by Carroll County prosecutors, ruling that they have no right to challenge a change in a criminal's sentence though the defense asked a judge for the change after the 90-day limit. That is because the time limit was created under state court rules, not state law. Rulings by the state's highest court on when prosecutors can appeal do not address a violation of court rules, the Court of Special Appeals said in a 2-1 decision. The opinion was issued in the case of Calvin Lamont Warfield, sentenced in 1997 to 10 years on a drug conviction.

A former employee at the Maryland School for the Deaf was sentenced Friday to seven years in prison for sexually abusing two girls at the school. Clarence Cepheus Taylor III, 38, showed no emotion as Howard County Circuit Judge William V. Tucker pronounced the sentence after a three-hour hearing. A young man seated in the spectator's gallery stood up quickly, shouted in protest and stormed out of the courtroom. Taylor, who worked as a school aide, was found guilty in a jury trial in November of two counts of child sexual abuse for inappropriately touching a 10-year-old girl and a 12-year-old girl at the Columbia campus.
