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.

A federal judge denied a Westminster woman's request to withdraw her guilty plea Tuesday and sentenced her to 10 years in prison for sex trafficking of a minor, a 17-year-old cousin whose sexual services she sold under the Internet heading "Available now." Deborah Gail Frock, who was previously convicted of trying to blackmail a state prosecutor, claimed that the government coerced her to take the plea agreement by outlining plans to file additional charges that carried a minimum 30-year sentence if she didn't accept the deal.
