Senning pleads guilty to kidnapping judge

  ROCKVILLE -  A local man charged with kidnapping and assaulting a circuit court judge pleaded guilty Friday to those charges, but said his victim is also to blame in the incident.  Rickley Senning, 25, pleaded guilty on Friday to unlawful imprisonment, second degree assault and driving under the influence of alcohol for his actions on May 19, 2014 against Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Audrey Creighton. Judge Diane Leasure sentenced Senning to 10 years for each count to be served concurrently, with all but three suspended. He also received five years probation. “We feel that the plea encompasses all the victims in this case because sometimes that is forgotten,” said John Erzen II, spokesperson for the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office. Prince George’s County prosecuted the case to avoid conflicts of interest. “You have Judge Creighton in this case who is a victim, but you also have the father and son...

County Executive Ike Leggett pushed the bill for a late filing last week and the Montgomery County delegation approved it 19-4.

Ex Virginia governor helps Howard County candidate

Thursday was not a good day for the last governor of Virginia as Bob McDonnell was found guilty of corruption in a Richmond courtroom. But another former Republican governor of Virginia, George Allen, had a better day of it in Howard County, talking up the candidacy of state Senate hopeful Jody Venkatesan in District 13 and other candidates at a Clarksville ballroom. “There were a lot of folks from Maryland who helped me out” in his successful race for governor of Virginia 20 years ago, Allen told a crowd of about 50, and he was happy to return the favor. Venkatesan is running against Democratic Del. Guy Guzzone for the seat now held by retiring Democratic Sen. Jim Robey. In 2010, Venkatesan lost the Republican primary for the seat that represents much of eastern and southern Howard County, but ran unopposed in June. “In every way, Jody is running on the issues that matter...

No more whistleblowers

  The Obama administration took a step back into the dark ages this week when CIA whistle blower Jeffrey Sterling found himself convicted of nine criminal counts under the thick umbrella of the Espionage Act. In a statement Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. said the verdict was a “just and appropriate outcome . . . The disclosures placed lives at risk. . . and they constituted an egregious breach of the public trust by someone who had sworn to uphold it.”
