At what had seemed to be a rather routine trial today for defendant Ray Ray Richards, charged with reckless endangerment in a dirtbike incident, Baltimore City Circuit Court judge Judge Sylvester B. Cox has handed down a sentence that defies logic. “Mr. Richards, for your wanton lack of regard for the safety of the public at large, I hereby sentence you to watch every Orioles game for the next three seasons.”
The decision passed down by Judge Cox will certainly be seen as controversial by many and may even find its way before Amnesty International if the public perception for the sentence worsens, especially when based solely on the performance of the Baltimore Orioles. More to come as the situation develops.
