Montgomery County School Teacher Lawrence Joynes, 54, Arrested for Child Pornography
The allegations against Lawrence Joynes, 54, have detectives looking into his 27-year career as a teacher in Montgomery County schools. Investigators are sorting through a series of images — Joynes told police he made videos of students as he inserted his finger into their mouths — and weighing what might legally constitute child pornography, according to authorities.
One particular concern is Joynes’s e-mail. Police said that Joynes last June sent similar videos to a child pornography producer in South Carolina. In the background of the videos, which involve a young girl, are musical instruments and what looks like a classroom, according to charging documents.
Since Joynes’s Feb. 27 arrest, parents have questioned whether school administrators were watching him closely enough

In the days after a Virginia man was arrested and charged with kidnapping a 12-year-old Bethesda girl and child sexual solicitation, a Montgomery County judge denied the mother of the victim a protective order against the man.
County district court records indicate the protective order was filed Thursday against 23-year-old National Guardsman and Iraq combat veteran Nathan Samuel Portnoy before circuit court Judge Paul A. McGuckian, according to court records. McGuckian denied the order, stating that the petitioner, the victim’s mother, failed to meet the burden of proof and there was no basis for the order.
This decision is at odds with the State’s Attorney prosecuting that same man for kidnapping the 12 year old at gun point. It just shows how arbitrary Maryland Judges can be in issuing Temporary Protective Orders.

The Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) today announced that the state’s online Judiciary Case Search Web site will no longer display the names of petitioners for for temporary, interim, final, and permanent protective orders and temporary, interim and final peace orders. The move is being made to protect the privacy of the petitioners.
At the request of the GOCCP and the Maryland State Board of Victim Services, the Office of the Administration of Courts (AOC) researched the issue of posting protective order and peace order petitioners’ names on the Maryland Judiciary Case Search (JCS) public website and has concluded, according to Maryland Rule 16-1008 (3)(B)(i), that the petitioners’ names should be blocked.

In the wake of a recent homicide involving a 36-year-old woman in Berwyn Heights, Prince George’s County leaders are debating whether protective orders are sufficient in keeping potential victims safe.
Amber Danielle Schinault, 36, was found dead July 22 by town police, with a slash to her neck in the basement of her home on 57th Street.
Less than 24 hours later, county police arrested Andrew Kugler, 37, of College Park near the College Park Metro Station, according to Prince George’s police, who added he is Schinault’s ex-boyfriend.
Kugler had a protective order against him at the time of the incident, which was intended to prohibit him from coming in contact with Schinault under any circumstance, according to Maryland Judiciary.
