A California man was arrested last Wednesday after Anne Arundel County Police said he allegedly sexually solicited a minor over a period of two years. Police said Murray Lee Chesak, 25, of Ontario, Calif. is facing a sexual solicitation of a minor charge for allegedly asking the victim to send him sexually explicit videos and photographs. Police said communications began when the girl was 13 years old. The police department's child abuse unit began investigating the case March 11, after the father of the victim discovered his daughter had been speaking with an adult male.

For the second time this week, family and friends of Oscar Torres gathered in public Friday to mourn his death, worrying, they say, that without holding vigils his killing will be forgotten and the person who shot him during a robbery will go free. About 50 people crammed into the front room of the family's rowhouse in Southwest Baltimore, huddled around a memorial of white roses and pictures. They sang and prayed in Spanish before Torres' mother, Ernestina Torres, led the group the few blocks north to where he was killed.

The four shots, which came in the early hours of Memorial Day, sounded as if they had been fired from some distance by a small-caliber gun. Bernice Latou's dogs scampered in from the backyard of her Southwest Baltimore home, and she wondered whether someone had fired toward them to shut them up. It was about 12:30 a.m. Monday, and Latou went to her door and peered along the first block of S. Mount St., but saw nothing. Nearly an hour later, she heard sirens. She looked out again and saw a starkly different scene: Paramedics were tending to a large male under a bush, hooking him to an IV and carrying his body away.

Commentator Sidney Rocke laments that "Maryland Del. Joe Vallario rules the House Judiciary Committee with an iron fist" ("A dictator in the House?" May 5). After the murder of Stephanie Roper 32 years ago, Delegate Vallario stepped up and has been the lead sponsor of victims' rights legislation in the Maryland House of Delegates - first for the Stephanie Roper Committee Inc., and now for its successor, the Maryland Crime Victims' Resource Center. Listed on MCVRC's website under "Law and Policy" is a compilation of victims' rights laws in Maryland, most of which were sponsored by Mr. Vallario.

Family and friends sang, prayed and burned candles on an East Baltimore basketball court Friday evening to remember John Jackson III, a 40-year-old father of two they recalled as a friendly and religious man. Police said he died this week after being shot nearby late last week. More than 150 people crowded in and around the court in the 900 block of N. Caroline St. for the vigil honoring Jackson. "My son was a quiet, humble, happy kind of fun guy," said his mother, Joanne Brown, 59, before joining the vigil.

I take issue with letter writer Richard Goutos' statement that no one was injured by listening to prayers at Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and other schools ( "Return prayer to public schools," May 19). I was one of those students who was made to feel inferior while I had to stand and in silence at the Christmas Nativity display and the introductory prayers of another's religion. Perhaps he forgets who is harmed when Syrian Christians, Sunnis and Shia kill each other because they do not want to listen to each others prayers.

A "B" and a "T" are etched into the black stone floor at Zumiez to remember Brianna Benlolo and Tyler Johnson. Customers might not even notice the understated initials at the entrance of the Mall in Columbia skate shop. Not unless they were staring at the ground - an unlikely proposition in a newly redecorated store whose displays call out for attention with brightly colored clothing, loud slogans and giant posters. Nonetheless, the letters are there, solemn memorials to the two young people who died Jan. 25 when 19-year-old Darion Aguilar opened fire in the store before killing himself.
