Bowie Man Pleads Guilty to Gambrills Burglary

A Naval Academy teacher admitted breaking into his ex-girlfriend's home and was granted probation before judgment, according to The Baltimore Sun.

 

Charles D. Spera of Bowie pleaded guilty Tuesday to fourth-degree burglary charges related to an October incident, according to online court records.

Spera, who teaches cyber-security at the U.S. Naval Academy, admitted breaking into his former girlfriend's home and will spend two weekends in jail and be on probation for 18 months, reported The Baltimore Sun.

Court records show that Erin McNamara obtained a peace order against Spera in October after the burglary incident.

Breaking into a home while the occupant is inside--"enjoy your time in jail, you deserve it."

I think it is significant that a judge in the state of MD, a state traditionally lenient with first time offenders, responded to this fourth-degree burglary offense with jail time. This LCDR Spera must be a real class act to get jail time after pleading guilty to a fourth degree misdemeanor offense.

MD is one of few states that offer something so liberal as "fourth degree burglary." In my home state of Virginia, any burglary is a felony and this guy would be looking at 5-20 years in jail. In my book this 'officer and a gentlemen' is really a just another felon. What else would you call a 32 year old man that breaks into a woman's house at night when she is inside.
