A man who pleaded guilty in connection with the fatal beating of financial analyst Zachary Sowers in Southeast Baltimore has been indicted on a federal gun charge. Arthur Jeter, 24, was among three teens who pleaded guilty to robbery and agreed to testify against a fourth man in the attack in exchange for lesser sentences. Jeter was sentenced to eight years, and was released on good-behavior credits after serving about five years. At the time, the case led to a backlash against then-State's Attorney Patricia A. Jessamy, which her successor, Gregg L. Bernstein, invoked Friday by saying the punishment was not enough.

A few hundred miles from Baltimore, a law school student learned last week that Gregg Bernstein upset Pat Jessamy in the Democratic primary for Baltimore state's attorney. That result gave some long-delayed comfort to this woman we came to know as she battled Baltimore officialdom in the wake of her husband's brutal murder. Her name is Anna Sowers. Her husband, Zach Sowers, was beaten into a nine-month-long coma in a street robbery a few steps from the couple's Patterson Park home on the night of June 2, 2007.

The spokeswoman for the Baltimore state's attorney's office has apologized by phone and by e-mail to the widow of a robbery victim whom she had criticized in an online publication, but she maintained that her comments were "vastly misrepresented" by the freelance journalist who wrote the piece. In a May 28 article in Exhibit A, which is about legal issues, Margaret T. Burns questioned whether the injuries Zachary Sowers sustained in June last year near his Patterson Park home were the result of a "vicious beating" and said that he looked like a "sleeping baby" at the hospital.

It's a street robbery that left a 27-year old man in a coma, his wife shaken and a community outraged - and yesterday it drew the attention of Mayor Sheila Dixon and her leading challenger in next month's Democratic primary election, City Councilman Keiffer J. Mitchell Jr. The victim, Zachary Sowers, was beaten near his Patterson Park home on the night of June 1. His attackers took his cell phone, his watch and his wallet, which held several credit cards....

It is indicative of what has become of the Orioles season, and their beleaguered pitching staff, when a starter allows 11 base runners and fails to complete five innings and it still qualifies as progress. Last night's 6-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians, the Orioles' ninth defeat in 10 games and 17th in their past 21, wasn't a particularly strong outing for rookie right-hander Radhames Liz (5-5). He was scored on in all but one of his innings and made 102 pitches before being removed with the Orioles trailing 4-1. It was the fifth time in eight tries he didn't get out of the fifth, and he has just one quality start in 18 major league attempts.

Cleaner, Greener, Chic-er. Sheila Dixon has expanded her campaign to spruce up Baltimore beyond collecting trash and planting trees. She's also giving fashion advice. "I'm just looking at your black stockings with your brown shoes," she told The Baltimore Sun's Annie Linskey last week when the reporter approached to ask a question about the proposed Land Bank Authority. "Is that not so OK?" Linskey responded. Dixon assured her: "No." Linskey had paired a tan cashmere sweater and black pencil skirt with black tights and tan patent leather Anyi Lu heels.

A nna Sowers has a date at Pazo tonight and another tomorrow morning at the Mitchell Courthouse. If fate had been kinder to the young widow, she'd be dining out with her husband and dreading jury duty. Instead, Sowers is holding a fundraiser from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Pazo to benefit a Hopkins brain trauma research fund named for Zach Sowers, who died last year, 10 months after robbers beat the Patterson Park newlywed into a coma. And Sowers is hoping - against all odds, she knows - she gets picked for a jury.

Who is that guy? : Indians ace Cliff Lee won't pitch in this series, but fellow left-hander Jeremy Sowers did quite an impression of the American League Cy Young Award favorite. Sowers, who had won two of 16 starts since being recalled from Triple-A Buffalo, allowed just a run and four hits in eight innings. He had allowed three earned runs or more in 13 of those starts. Roberts robs them: : The Indians had eight hits off Orioles starter Radhames Liz, but it could have very easily been 10 if not for some nifty defense from second baseman Brian Roberts.

A member of the City Council has called on State's Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy to fire her spokeswoman over comments she made about Zachary Sowers, a 28-year-old man who was severely beaten last year. Councilman James B. Kraft, who represents the district where Sowers lived, said the comments by the spokeswoman, Margaret T. Burns, were outrageous and that "Ms. Burns must go." In a May 28 article in a local legal magazine, Burns questioned whether the injuries Sowers suffered near his Patterson Park home were the result of a "vicious beating" and said he looked like a "sleeping baby" at the hospital.
