A 17-year-old girl admitted Wednesday in Washington County juvenile court to driving under the influence in August. Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley, sitting in juvenile court, ordered the girl to serve the juvenile equivalent of probation before judgment. Probation before judgment is the conditional avoidance of imposition of a sentence or, in a juvenile case, a disposition. If certain conditions, which in this case included community service, are not satisfied, the girl could be sent back to court for violating probation.

By MARLO BARNHART Staff Writer Two Ohio doctors - convicted in January of carrying 100-plus doses of morphine in their family van - were granted probation before judgment Thursday in Washington County District Court. But Judge R. Noel Spence stopped short of letting Drs. Arlene Marie Basedow and William Kent Basedow off lightly. "For people who are highly educated and respected by your peers and your patients, you have exhibited extremely foolish, thoughtless and ignorant behavior," Spence said.

A judge refused Tuesday to grant probation before judgment to a Smithsburg Town Council member who pleaded guilty to one count of driving an uninsured vehicle. In denying the request, Washington County District Judge Noel Spence said Michael Todd Rohrer had been given enough breaks. Probation before judgment prevents a defendant from having a record unless he or she gets into trouble with the law during the probation period. Rohrer had been charged with concocting a phony vehicle validation sticker with his home computer and driving without insurance since 1995.

By MARLO BARNHART Staff Writer Washington County Circuit Judge John H. McDowell challenged a 13-year-old boy Wednesday to "imagine himself on the receiving end" of the May 31 robbery and beating that landed him in juvenile court. The boy told the judge he didn't know his 16-year-old companion was going to commit the crime when it occurred. But what convinced the judge to place the youth on supervised probation and allow him to remain at home was the good report from his school.

Over the objections of a police officer who said he could have been shot in the incident, a father and son were granted probation before judgment during a sentence-modification hearing Thursday in Washington County Circuit Court.
