What a light sentence. Given by a Irish Catholic judge. Maybe they should give him a promotion. He could become the principal of Calvert Hall. That's the crown jewel of homosexuality and perversion in Towson. Calvert Hall Principal Lou Heidrick sure covered up enough of it in his forty plus years of being employed there. With 23 sexual abuse related suicides and hundreds of sex abuse victims C.H.C. ranks #1 in the state!

How sad, I'm really sorry to hear that. The problem is that there is still a number of folks who sit on the bench who do not view this behavior as serious. There is a progression of aberrant behavior that begins with public exposure, and will often progress to increasingly more serious crimes involving a variety of different victims involving things such as child porn and child sexual abuse. It is usually not an isolated incident and doesn't just happen out of the blue. Many folks in our legal and judicial field still don't get that.

Kurt: Please STOP mailing things to Kelbark Court. You have the wrong address - they DO NOT live here. I have returned several of you letters but the Post Office can only do so much. I have also tried calling the numbers on your business cards, emailing you and tracking down your organization but no luck. I hope you see this because I really don't want to have these filling up my mailbox very week. Thanks.
