    There are more varieties of “Sexual Offense” (4) in Maryland, than they have versions of “Assault” (2), gotta love liberal Maryland.

    When did the “Extreme victimization of sexual predators” allow these nasty, perverse people more ways to plea, then 2 adults fighting.

    Somebody needs to sodomize his body before and after he’s dead!
