Man arrested on burglary, sex offense charges
The Anne Arundel Police Department said they have arrested a 25-year-old man on multiple counts of burglary and sex offenses charges. According to an earlier report from Feb. 5, a white male in a dark hoodie reached through a window in a Glen Burnie home and touched a 7-year-old girl. About an hour later, a woman reported that she heard a noise and found a person in dark clothing standing in her kitchen. The person took something off the woman’s kitchen table and ran.
The police said that a DNA profile was about to be recovered from some latex gloves that were found near the second burglary. That DNA allegedly matched the man police eventually arrested. During an interview with the man, police said that the man confessed two the two burglaries.
At some point, the man requested that he receive medical attention. He was taken to the hospital, then booked into the Jennifer Road Detention Center with a bail of $450,000. At a bail review hearing, the judge ordered that he be held on no bond. His charges include first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, as well as third and fourth sex offense and second-degree assault.
Crimes such as burglary and sex offense carry significant penalties that include lengthy prison times. Those who are facing such charges need an experienced lawyer, who can work to mitigate the penalties. An attorney can help build a strong defense case, challenging evidence and witness testimony. Your criminal defense strategies depend on your side of the story and what can be used to create reasonable doubt in the mind of the jury.
