Judge Criticized For Freeing Twice-Convicted Sex Offender
Circuit Court Judge Thomas Bollinger Sr. recently allowed a twice convicted sex offender to go free on bail.
Miller said Bollinger drew fierce protests from women's groups in the 1990s for his handling of a domestic violence case and for his comments during a rape case. Now, there's controversy over a decision involving a man who faces sex charges for the fourth time.
In 1993, Bollinger gave probation before judgment to a man who raped an 18-year-old employee while she was drunk and suggested the incident was the dream of a lot of men, Miller reported.
The most recent case involves Anthony Withrow, 41, who police arrested last month after a search of Maryland's DNA database linked him to a 1986 rape of two women in Essex.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
