    Wandering Eye: A glimpse at new Gov. Larry Hogan, Clint Eastwood's antiwar politics, and more
    Back in 2011, Angello Osborne was arrested and jailed in Harford County for more than eight months on charges that he raped and sodomized his 5-year-old daughter in his Edgewood apartment, until prosecutors, despite having told the media that the daughter had used dolls to demonstrate exactly what Osborne was alleged to have done, declined to pursue the charges. Yesterday, Osborne's lawsuit claiming that the charges stemmed from investigators purposefully leading his reluctant daughter to fabricate the abuse story survived the efforts of one of them—Peter Georgiades, a decorated officer of the Harford County Sheriff's Department—to have it dismissed. Osborne's allegations that Georgiades "knowingly omitted relevant exculpatory evidence from his arrest warrant application and actively pressured the minor child into fabricating the underlying sexual abuse," U.S. District Judge Richard Bennett wrote in his opinion, "if true, support a finding that probable cause did not exist for Osborne's arrest and subsequent imprisonment." The ill-fated investigation began when the child's mother, Meredith Pipitone, reported the alleged abuse to the authorities, including Georgiades, who left out of his application for the warrant to arrest Osborne any mention of the fact that the child allegedly denied the abuse consistently until investigators cajoled her to make up the story, as well as any information about a medical examination that sought to find signs of the alleged abuse. Last month, Osborne moved to expunge the criminal charges against him from the court records in Harford County. (Van Smith)
