Burglar In West Ocean City Crime Gets Break In Court, Again

A Baltimore teen-ager who got a legal break after burglarizing a West Ocean City residence in July 2011 got another break in court last Friday.

Although Shane Andrew Cohill, 19, did not do what he was supposed to do while on probation for the burglary, Judge Richard Bloxom said “there is some chance” Cohill would do as required this time.

Cohill, a 19-year-old young woman and two 17-year-old boys came to the resort area and broke into a residence on Village Lane, just off Old Bridge Road. They pried open the back door to get in. Police said they were using it as a temporary place to stay.

A day or two later, the owner returned to his home to find the four teenagers inside and his television on. He did not know the intruders.

That is good thinking JUDGE. Just a light tap on the wrist and send him home and say NOW BE A GOOD BOY. What if he breaks into your home? would YOU give him the same sentence . I doubt it.
