A former Annapolis alderman and mayoral candidate who spent a weekend in jail for groping a Naval Academy midshipman does not have to register as a sex offender, an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court judge ruled Thursday. Gil Cochran, the attorney for Samuel E. Shropshire, 63, had sought a dismissal of that requirement, arguing that it would affect Shropshire's ability to find employment. Judge Paul F. Harris agreed, saying that Shropshire, who was found guilty of groping a 21-year-old male midshipman whom he mentored through a Naval Academy-sponsored program, had satisfied all the requirements of his sentence.

A former Annapolis mayoral candidate and alderman was ordered Monday to spend next weekend in jail for groping the crotch of a drunken Naval Academy midshipman whom he was sponsoring. Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. said he probably would not have jailed Samuel E. Shropshire, but Shropshire's words to a pre-sentence investigator changed that. Despite Shropshire's text-messaged apology to the midshipman shortly after the incident and subsequent admission in a telephone call, Shropshire told the investigator that his 21-year-old accuser was "lying through his teeth," the judge said.

A Montgomery County assistant state's attorney will take over the prosecution of Annapolis mayoral candidate Samuel E. Shropshire, the city alderman accused of groping a Naval Academy midshipman, as Anne Arundel County prosecutors seek to avoid an appearance of a conflict of interest. "We have two people in our office who work with him on the city council, and one of them is an opponent in the mayor's race," said Kristin Fleckenstein, spokeswoman for the state's attorney's office. David Cordle, a Republican mayoral candidate and alderman, is the chief investigator for the Anne Arundel County state's attorney's office.

The lawyer for an Annapolis alderman accused of inappropriately touching a midshipman said Tuesday that he thinks the Naval Criminal Investigative Service may have recorded a telephone conversation between his client and the accuser, who the lawyer said was "thoroughly inebriated" the night of the alleged incident. Samuel E. Shropshire, a Democrat who has declared his candidacy for mayor, has adamantly denied the allegations made by the 21-year-old male midshipman, who told authorities that the alderman groped his crotch late May 14 in Shropshire's car. Shropshire's lawyer, Gill Cochran, said the midshipman called Shropshire, who has been charged with second-degree assault and a fourth-degree sex offense, sometime after May 14 and attempted to goad him into a confession.

Shropshire on Monday night, at the first Annapolis City Council meeting since he was charged last month with groping a Naval Academy midshipmen.

The City girls basketball team Friday night faced Riverdale Baptist - traditionally one of the toughest teams in the state - for the fourth straight time in the fourth annual Breezy Bishop Showcase at Western. This time Riverdale Baptist won, 56-45, as it had in each of the three previous meetings. But this time it was not a blowout, and the No. 7 Knights went home with hope for the rest of their season. "They had quick guards and could make their foul shots," said City senior guard LaShay Taft, who scored 11 points and will attend Syracuse next year.

Samuel E. Shropshire, the Annapolis alderman who was a contender for mayor this fall, was convicted Thursday of groping a Naval Academy midshipman, a crime for which he could be sent to prison for more than a decade. Shropshire, 61, was convicted during a bench trial on charges of second-degree assault and fourth-degree sexual assault for grabbing the crotch of a 21-year-old midshipman whom he mentored in an academy sponsorship program. "The defendant should have known better," said Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Paul F. Harris Jr. "He should have separated himself from the situation.

The divorce was never finalized.
