Harford County investigators have interviewed 15 children in the case of an Edgewood truck driver charged with sexual abuse, an assistant state's attorney said yesterday. David Kanelopoulus, 43, of the 1000 block of E. Spring Meadow Drive was arrested last week and charged with three counts each of second-degree sex offense and child abuse. He is being held without bond at Harford County Detention Center. M. Teresa Garland, assistant state's attorney with the Harford County Child Advocacy Center, said "six solid victims" had been confirmed, all girls ranging from 9 to 12 years old. No additional charges have been filed, she said.

Six lawyers, two of them career criminal prosecutors and one a former judge who lost a previous election, will be considered to replace a judge who retired last summer from the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court bench. Sixteen people applied, and the Judicial Nominating Commission for the county winnowed the applicants down last week. Gov. Martin O'Malley must appoint someone from the panel's list, though he can also reopen the process to generate a new list. Whoever is appointed will have a short time on the job before needing to win election next year to keep it, provided the appointment is made before the filing deadline in July for November's election.

They are the lawyers in limbo on the ladder to litigation.Julie Marindin, Brian Thompson and Marc L. Zayon graduated from the University of Baltimore School of Law in December and passed the bar in June. They could find jobs at big firms, if they wanted.Instead, these doctors of jurisprudence earn $24,000 as law clerks in the Baltimore County state's attorney's office, waiting for prosecutors' jobs to open.The only full-fledged lawyers now working as law clerks for state prosecutors in the Baltimore metropolitan region, they routinely tote carts full of files down the hall, sit in court next to seasoned prosecutors, do research for attorneys and handle simple matters before judges.

The Howard County state's attorney yesterday declined to prosecute former Dunbar High School basketball star David Wingate on second-degree rape and related charges by placing the case on an inactive criminal docket for one year. The action may pave the way for Wingate to return to the San Antonio Spurs.William R. Hymes, the state's attorney, responded to a request by a Baltimore teen-ager who testified last week that she had been raped last fall at a party in Columbia but wanted the charges dropped to avoid the pain of a trial.

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge has dismissed a $14 million lawsuit accusing city and state leaders of failing to protect the Dawson family from the 2002 firebombing that killed the couple and their five children. Judge M. Brooke Murdock struck down an argument from survivors that the city created danger by soliciting participation through its "Believe" campaign and by encouraging residents to report criminal activity to police. The judge ruled that the advertisements were directed at all Baltimore residents and not to the Dawsons specifically.

Anselm Sodaro, Baltimore's former chief judge who as a prosecutor won a stunning conviction in the 1952 Grammer murder case, died of cancer Sunday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. He was 91 and had lived in Towson for a decade. He was the city state's attorney from 1950 to 1956, winning national attention for sending a Northeast Baltimore man to the gallows for murdering his wife in what was dubbed "the almost perfect crime." Gov. Theodore R. McKeldin, a Republican, picked Judge Sodaro, a Democrat, to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City - now the Circuit Court - in 1956, and he remained on the bench for nearly 35 years.

Longtime Senior Assistant State's Attorney Michael D. Rexroad arrived at Howard County Circuit Court last week for what he thought was a routine show-cause hearing. But he quickly found that the hearing was a ploy to lure him to Courtroom 1 for a surprise sendoff Thursday to mark his retirement after more than 28 years with the state's attorney's office. He told the assembled judges, prosecutors, public defenders and court staff that he pleaded guilty to retirement on condition that he will spend it relaxing and teaching at the University of Baltimore Law School, his alma mater.

During that time, she has built such a strong prosecutorial reputation that no one will run against her.

In a homecoming of sorts, Jerry F. Barnes was sworn in yesterday as Carroll's state's attorney, officially replacing the five-term incumbent who gave him his first job in law and was his mentor and close friend.But for most of the lawyers who worked in the office under Thomas E. Hickman -- many of whom Mr. Barnes still refers to as friends -- the transfer of power looked more like an eviction.Since Carroll voters overwhelmingly placed Mr. Barnes in the prosecutor's office Nov. 8, seven of the 11 assistant state's attorneys have quit, been fired, or asked to resign, many of them in the past two weeks.
