Prince George's County Executive, Wife Face 20 Years If Convicted

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA) -- Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson and his wife Leslie face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, according to a federal indictment.

MVA: 1,300 Could Be Driving With Bad Licenses

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- The head of Maryland's Motor Vehicle Administration says more than 1,300 residents may be driving on licenses that could be suspended or revoked.

MVA officials reviewed more than 10,000 licenses with eight or more violation points after a state audit revealed problems with oversight at the administration.

MVA Administrator John Kuo says more than 1,300 cases drew potential red flags and are being reviewed manually. He told lawmakers Tuesday that automated software that translates data from courts into points on people's licenses was responsible for the failure to notice the problem.

Kuo says he has addressed other issues uncovered by the audit, including a conclusion that MVA electronic databases left drivers' personal information vulnerable to theft.

Courtroom Chaos: Victim Tackled After Confronting Her Attacker

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA) -- Teka Adams lifted her shirt and showed scars where her attacker tried to cut her unborn baby from her womb.

The child, Miracle, is doing well and was in court with her mother. Her attacker, Veronica Deramous, of Suitland, plead guilty and was sentenced Friday.

Both Deramous and Adams addressed the court. Adams said she wanted to be in court to find answers and show her attacker her child.

At times, she yelled. Adams then lifted her shirt to show the judge her scars. She turned around and yelled at Deramous' family. She cried and passionately described her life since the attack.

After Adams spoke, Deramous addressed the court with a prepared statement. But shortly after describing how she bought items for the child, Adams lashed out.

Gov. Martin O'Malley Wins 2nd Term In Maryland

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Democratic incumbent Gov. Martin O'Malley won a second term in a rematch with Republican former Gov. Robert Ehrlich on Tuesday in a race that featured negative advertising and sniping debates between Maryland's two biggest political rivals.

O'Malley's victory provided a bright spot for Democrats suffering big losses in both congressional and governors' races. His first term was hampered largely by the recession, which made budget cuts routine over the last three years. Still, the governor emphasized throughout the campaign that he has worked hard to protect priorities in public safety and education while positioning Maryland to weather the recession better than most states.

With 6 percent of precincts reporting, Harris had 51 percent of the vote to Kratovil's 46 percent. Libertarian Richard Davis had 3 percent.
