Brannon Joel Powell, Charged With Sexual Assault in Crofton, MD

What is happening to sleepy little Cofton? First we have the David Raszewski rape of a 7 year old, and now a woman who was selling newspapers door to door was sexually assaulted.  Maybe it is time that the Anne Arundel Police and the Crofton Police put their heads together and figure a way to stop this alarming trend.

According to Anne Arundel County Police, On Tuesday, April 14, 2009, at approximately 5:15pm, officers from the Western District responded to the 1000 block of Chilmark Court in Crofton and spoke with the 18-year-old old female victim, who advised that she had been selling newspapers door to door. The victim reported that she was invited into a residence, where she was forced to perform a sexual act on the resident. The victim then ran to a house in the neighborhood and requested police assistance.

As a result,  Brannon Joel Powell, 29, of 1013 Chilmark Court, Crofton, Maryland, was arrested and charged with Second, Third, and Fourth Degree Sex Offenses and Second Degree Assault and is being held at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on $1,500,000 bond .

Even more disturbing is that Brannon Joel Powell is an employee of the District of Columbia Public Schools. His primary job is a staff professional development instructor and his contact with children is minimal. The District of Columbia Public Schools has been notified of his arrest.

Kudos tot he police, but seriously, what’s going on?
