    Why they let this guy go on “personal recognizance” is beyond me. I hope that when they catch him they lock him up for a good long time.

    I blame this incident solely on the St Marys County Judicial System for letting him go on the first event at the Walmart. Shame on you.

  15. Adele on November 27, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Why does he feel he has to or wants to do this. Does his family help him? Should he be put away for go? Is he living on the streets? Curious

  16. matt on November 27, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    Ill bet the woman’s not innocent either. It was more than likely a drug deal gone wrong.

    This is the type of criminal that makes a complete mockery of Richard Fritz, the court commissioners, our judges and anyone else in the criminal justice system. I’ll bet he laughs at all of them!

    will be arrested again and will back on street within hours I say do society a favor and lets get armed and shoot this scum bag

  21. Anonymoos on November 28, 2012 at 6:43 am

    What a drain on society. It’s a shame he hasn’t messed with the wrong person yet, maybe they would do what the county will not.

  22. Black Friday's Victim on November 28, 2012 at 7:56 am

    I sincerely believe this guy is begging to be kept in jail. Why else would he keep repeating the same crime? He looks healthy enough for janitorial work – someone needs to hire him and he needs to start paying child support and his victims for pain and suffering. His parents and family need to quit supporting him.

  23. SMNEWS NET ROCKS!! on November 28, 2012 at 8:50 am

    Who is the judge that let him go. He is a piece of trash just like this guy. And they want people to refer to him as “Your Honor”. Screw that, I’ll walk right up to this judge and ask him what he would think if that was done to his wife/daughter/grandmother/mother/ect…..

    Please retire Judge…………………..Your a joke and making this county trash.

    Good Job.

    • Anonymous on November 28, 2012 at 10:01 am

      He would have been released by a court commissioner, not a judge. Our court commissioners operate in secret. They are never named publicly. Perhaps Southern Maryland News Net can expand their reporting by publishing the names of the court commissioners who make the bail/bond decisions on these cases! Their decisions have a huge impact on our community but no one knows who they are. What say you SMNN? Any chance?

  24. Anon on November 28, 2012 at 9:51 am

    Lock this scum bag up! Two crimes in less than a week! I agree we need a Conceled Carry law for trash like this! Lock him up for good! We don’t need more crime in the area!

    I bet his mom is real proud to have his mug posted all over the internet!!

  26. Heather on November 28, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    This crime spree of his goes back in to October. This is the 5-6th time he has done this and been released.

  27. Afraid to shop in St. Mary's on November 28, 2012 at 4:10 pm

    My son grabbed two bottles of liquor in Ocean City at outdoor bar and immediately got 30 days in jail, $8,000.00 bond, 40 hours of community service and 2 years probation. Was not released on “personal recognizance”. Yep, I left him there. Very disappointed in his behavior but more disappointed in St. Mary’s legal system.

  28. Afraid to shop in St. Mary's on November 28, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    In addition, he got $650.00 fine and alcohol drug program for 6 months and random urine testing. Drug class is $6.00 each session and random urine testing is $12.00. Testing is over $200.00 so far. St. Mary’s needs an Ocean City commissioner and judge.

  29. Len on November 29, 2012 at 8:33 am

    Hope the people who re-elected Densford enjoy the revolving door justice in this area. Nothing new. Just the same families and idiots from the families causing grief. Mess up, get arrested, get a slap on the wrist, mess up again. Repeat the cycle.

      What does Densford have to do with this? And you may note, he wasn’t re-elected.

        What planet you been hiding on? Densford WAS reelected, this time for another 15 years. Get used to the criminals going free because that’s his background … always defending guilty people and prosecuting the victims in court.

  31. THIS IS RIDICULOUS on November 29, 2012 at 9:25 am

    Well once again the finest commisioners in the country have allowed a person to get away with yet another crime. I would love to see this man on the streets and have him TRY to take my money or belongings. He wont be going to jail until after he leaves the hospital if he even leaves the hospital if I have anything to do with it. Scumbags like him need to be locked up and have the key thrown away. O and by the way how does he keep posting bail? With the money that he has been stealing from people? Ugh what a low life. Get a job of your own and maybe you will have some money to pay for your drug addictions.

    I can’t believe they set him free AGAIN! How many women or children does he have to assault or EVENTUALLY MURDER before he is kept behind bars! He is becoming more violent since he assaulted a child in this last incident. He has to be related to someone in law enforcement to continuously be set free after multiple assaults! This is for the POS! A mother is the deadliest person you will EVER meet, especially me. You mess with me, I don’t care and you will be beat like the snake you are. You mess with my children, you will be leaving in a body bag. Just food for thought. Do us all a favor and go hang yourself. Whomever bailed this low life out of jail, I hope you rot in hell for endangering the community.

    The woman that was assaulted was his gf and the kid was her son that he pushed off her daughter after the son and daughter got in a fight and the gf is the one that blown this hole thing out off perportion she is also the one that bailed him out he did not rob one one nor did he assault no one he was getting his money back from his crazy gf the reporter blown this story way out of perportion

    • Anonymous on November 30, 2012 at 7:49 am

      That may very well be the case in this situtaion, but the report was based off of what the woman stated to the police. So, she should be charged with giving false statments to an officer also!

      And even if what you are saying is true, he did 6 days prior, rob and assault someone. He has several pending court hearings for other charges, so either way this guy is a loser and needs to be behind bars.

          I dont give a crap if it was his “gf” or not! If what you say is true, then she should be charged with giving a false statement to an officer.

          Being that you claim to know all the “facts” why don’t you post all these “facts” under your real name so we all know who to go to when we need the “facts”

    He did assault a sister of a friend of mine Black Friday morning around 10:30 a.m. as well as another woman a few hours earlier. So, yes, he is a POS and yes he did assault at least two women. Thanks to the friend of mines sister, she was the reason he was put behind bars, but was released by the commissioner before the first article was uploaded. Finally, NO it’s not over.
