Sex offender beats man; another man beats security guard

8-19-2010 Maryland:

Two unusual cases before city courts on this week highlight the extremes some criminals will go.

In one, a registered sex offender beat a man in Fells Point who he mistakenly thought posted notices around the neighborhood about his record. It took one hour for District Judge Askew Gatewood to find Francis Myers, 46, guilty of second degree assault and sentence him to six months in jail.

Prosecutors said Myers repeteadly hit the victim in the head with a metal pipe. At the time, Myers was on parole for second degree rape and second degree sex offense, and had prior convictions for assault, arson, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and possession of a deadly weapon. ..Source..
