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.

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 Laurel woman jailed since April without bond in the shooting death of her abusive husband was convicted yesterday of manslaughter and will serve no more time behind bars. Circuit Judge Paul A. Hackner sentenced Laura Ann Rogers, 36, to 10 years in prison - the maximum penalty - but reduced her sentence to time served plus five years' supervised probation. Hackner also ordered psychological counseling for Rogers and her three children. After sentencing, Hackner told Rogers that he believed "horrible" mitigating circumstances - and her defense attorney's claim that she suffered from battered spouse syndrome - were enough to warrant releasing the woman.
