Saying "enough is enough," a Howard County Circuit Court judge sentenced a 43-year-old Columbia man to 18 years in prison yesterday for terrorizing members of his family for the second time in less than a decade. Judge James B. Dudley handed Kenneth Robert Welk Jr. three consecutive five-year prison terms for assault plus a three-year prison term for resisting arrest -- a sentence greater than recommended by state sentencing guidelines but less than the 30-plus years maximum allowed by law. In imposing sentence, Dudley noted the first incident, in 1991, during which Welk held his ex-wife and her co-workers at an Ellicott City bank hostage at gunpoint.
