The state's attorney of Cecil County, Md., spent too much time naked at his sliding glass door, and complaints by four Pa. tourists led to his arrest.
UPDATE, 2:02 p.m.: Worcester County Circuit Judge Brian Shockley imposed a $1,000 fine and a 90-day jail sentence with all time suspended for Ellis Rollins, along with 100 hours of community service, 18 months of supervised probation and mental health treatment. Worcester County State’s Attorney said he asked for a two-year sentence with 18 months suspended, which would have meant Rollins would have spent six months in the Worcester jail, but Shockley did not take that recommendation.
UPDATE, 11:17 a.m.: Ellis Rollins submitted his resignation on Monday as state’s attorney, Cecil County Administrative Judge Keith Baynes confirmed today. The resignation is effective Friday at 4:30 p.m., Baynes said. The move was first reported by the Cecil Whig.
It’s Valentine’s Day, and the top prosecutor in Cecil County, Md., having already celebrated his love with his wife in full view of numerous others, will stand before a judge today and receive a criminal sentence for such public displays of affection.
