Baltimore prosecutors can proceed with sexual child abuse counts against Maurice J. Blackwell, the priest accused of sodomizing Dontee Stokes more than 15 years ago, according to a judge's ruling issued yesterday. Circuit Judge John M. Glynn denied a motion made by Blackwell's lawyers last month asking that sexual child abuse charges be thrown out because they were too old and politically motivated. Glynn ruled that although prosecutors first investigated the abuse claims in 1993 and didn't charge Blackwell until 2003, the delay "was not purposefully done ... to gain advantage over the defendant."

A judge has ruled that former Carroll County schools Superintendent William H. Hyde will have the chance to argue in court that he should get a new trial because evidence presented at last month's trial did not support his conviction in the rape and sexual child abuse of an elementary school-age girl. Carroll County Circuit Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. scheduled the hearing for next week after attorneys for the former schools chief argued in written court filings that the child's testimony contradicted the medical findings of the forensic pediatrician who examined her, and that the judge's characterization of the case as "close" shows that the prosecution did not prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.

Victims of sexual child abuse in Maryland face one of the most restrictive laws in the nation on civil lawsuits, one that prevents most adults who were molested as children from having their claims heard in court. State law and appeals court decisions require that lawsuits be filed before the victim's 21st birthday, when many victims are still too traumatized by the abuse and its consequences to go public with an accusation. The clock starts ticking on the three-year statute of limitations as soon as the victim turns 18. Legal experts say Maryland is among a dwindling minority of states that have not created exceptions in the civil statute of limitations for people who were abused as minors.
