USPS Easton Decision To Be Decided Soon

Talk of the Easton processing facility leaving the Eastern Shore of Maryland is heating up again. U.S. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., wants a legitimate study completed on the issue. Mikulski placed a hold on legislation that could send the Easton facility across state lines to Delaware. While Mikulski objects to this legislation, the U.S. Postal Service continues a rushed study to close what the senator says is a needed mail center on the Eastern Shore. The hold by Mikulski was an attempt to insure a fair review process was taking place. Then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., filed a motion to hold a key vote on the postal reform bill as early as next week. That vote will need the support of at least 60 senators.

Easton Man Pleads Guilty To Child Sex Charges

A 70-year-old Easton man pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Baltimore to sexually exploiting two pre-teen girls to produce child pornography. The plea agreement states two girls under the age of 10 said they had been repeatedly sexually abused by Paul Henry Brown over the course of several months, to include being forced to perform oral sex on Brown. Prosecutors said Talbot County sheriff’s deputies contacted Brown on July 30, 2010, who denied the allegations.

On August 11, 2010, Talbot County deputies executed a search warrant at Brown’s home and seized a digital camera and flash memory card. According to court documents, further investigation revealed that the camera was used to take pictures of the two girls nude, and engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Two CD-Rs also were seized, which prosecutors said contained more than 600 images and many videos of child pornography, including portrayals of sadistic conduct.

Most of the images involved prepubescent girls, court records show. As part of his plea agreement, Brown must register as a sex offender in the place where he resides, where he is an employee, and where he is a student, under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. Brown faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years in prison followed by up to a lifetime of supervised release. U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles Jr. has scheduled sentencing for 1 p.m. on April 25.

Easton Donates to Teen Court /Talbot Partnership

The Town of Easton recently made a donation to Talbot Partnership for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention in support of both the Talbot County Teen Court program and other ongoing programs of Talbot Partnership.

Talbot County’s Teen Court program addresses the high risk of problematic behavior among Talbot County youth. The program provides early diversion for youth with first-time, minor offenses, often alcohol and tobacco violations. Teen Court provides consequences to reinforce the fact that negative behavior will not be tolerated. It provides opportunities for pro-social activities and social restitution in the community to steer youth away from the streets and delinquent activity, and it provides referrals to services to address substance abuse as well as mental health or educational needs. Talbot Partnership is the fiscal agent for the Teen Court program.

Talbot Partnership has a long history of activities and programs in Talbot County of building strong community norms through education and advertising, helping families through programs such as Guiding Good Choices and Safe Homes, serving as fiscal agents for organizations providing community youth outreach and services, making it hard for youth to get alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, and working with youth to encourage healthy choices. The town’s donation supports on-going programs including TALK Bags and Resource folders for parents of all Talbot County 6th and 9th graders, Safe Homes directories, Youth Coalition, and others.

For further information on Talbot Partnership, please contact 410-819-8067 or info@talbotpartnership.org.

NSC Executive Director Sandy Redd comments, “The food donated by Hearthstone Health & Fitness will be given to more than 400 people-in-need during the month of December.

Nude Beachgoer Sentenced

You may remember the arrest of 76-year-old Aubrey Dunn of Easton. Dunn was sitting naked on a beach near two young children on June 9th. Dunn was already a lifetime sex offender in a previous case of child molesting. Last week, Dunn got 15 months in the Dorchester county jail on the indecent exposure charge. In January, he will have a violation of probation hearing in Anne Arundel County. If the judge rules against him, Dunn could get another five years.
