Blaine Young

Blaine Young, former president of the Frederick County Board of County Commissioners.

The trial of a former Frederick County Board of County Commissioners president accused of prostitution has been postponed, according to court records. 

Blaine Young was charged with four counts of prostitution in Anne Arundel County after a Feb. 18 sting at a hotel near Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

Police have said Young responded to an ad on a website commonly used to arrange escort services. He gave an undercover officer $60 in exchange for sex, according to officials.

His trial was originally scheduled for Monday of next week, but has been postponed until Aug. 23, court records show.

Young’s attorney, Peter Sean O’Neill, said Wednesday that Young will plead not guilty.

Young was a Frederick County commissioner from 2010 to 2014, then ran unsuccessfully for county executive.

Yeah, you two could be bunk-mates.

Blaine said his beans have been spilt
on Facebook admitted his guilt
O'Neill said the note
was not artfully wrote
when the MBA tilted his kilt.

But, but, she was just a dancer.....

DickD

Please allow me to point out, we have overlooked one important factor, under the Frederick County Charter the CE and Council members can be removed for moral reasons. And from what I have read so far, Blaine didn't take any of his Republican buddies with him. Why not?

rbtdt5

what does this have to do with charter government? Blaine has nothing to do with any government right now.

BlueDawn666

What Dick is saying is that had Blaine been elected to CE we could have kicked him off the Council because the Charter has a moral clause. We should be able to kick Kirby off though...

rbtdt5

But he wasn't so it's a non-issue. But I get it. So if Hillary Clinton would have been elected CE we could kick her out... or if Rasheed Raequan Stansbury were elected, we could have kicked him out.

tgrace

probably not till he was convicted though....

DickD

rb, sorry to inform you, Hillary does not come under the Frederick County Charter. But Billy and Kirby do. If Blaine took Billy and Kirby with him and they too were caught and perhaps convicted, they too could be removed. (There is a God!)

DickD

Most likely, Kirby's transgressions have not reached the moral threshold necessary to be removed from office, unless being a PITA counts.

rbtdt5

Dicky, Hillary has as much to do with out county government at Blaine. Geesh, I have to explain everything to you???

DickD

You must be naive', Blaine ran for CE, would have been CE, if Jan had not beaten him. The Charter clearly states that anyone with moral character problems can be removed from office. So, if Blaine had of been elected, he would be liable for removal. God, do I have to explain everything, even the obvious?

thevoiceoffrederick

This proves Frederick is and will always be a bunch of children, of course he will pled innocent, of course the attorney will continue the cause to a different date. Most likely his attorney has told him to go to counseling "you have a problem" ;) we will get this pushed back,, take longer on discovery and see what we can find that the police did or did not do and most likely he ill pay a fine and get a probation before judgment. The legal system in this country is a joke, just look at the federal level, a presidential candidate is and has been under investigation for over a year, anyone else would be in jail. What's sad is people here are kicking a man when he is down, its so nice that Frederick is such a great place with all these perfect people living in shinny glass houses. What you all are doing is no more then cyber bullying, you want to make this a better place to live and raise children, start with yourselves. I wonder how many of you go on social media and shame others for similar behavior. He made a mistake, I believe he said he was sorry, now if you want to make a difference, go after the people involved with human trafficking , forcing young girls into prostitution, help make a stronger education system so you girls have a chance for a better education and can get a good job one day, help build a stronger economy so women can get good paying jobs and not be forced into the sex industry to pay bills or buy food for their children. Simply grow up and really start doing your part.

phydeaux994

This was no mistake. Blaine has been doing this his entire adult life. He's not only down, he's in the gutter and he put himself there. He needs to have some sense kicked into his head. He has hurt, not only himself but his family. He has humiliated his wife and especially his kids who have to take the flak from their peers. He needs more than a slap on the wrist to wake him up to his problem.

Doritos


The point is it was a undercover cop not a hooker but I sure he had many hookers in the past

jwhamann

Should've bought her dinner first....

rbtdt5

Great post.

BlueDawn666

Simply grow up and really start doing your part... well the Voice of Frederick has spoken..who died and left you in charge? Guess we had better just move along right? Not on your life...like we care what you think, actually I don't much care what anyone thinks, especially you. Don't much care what a Trump supporter thinks.

rbtdt5

"I don't much care what anyone thinks"
we know and it shows in your hate filled rants. I'm sorry you live a sad life. I think if you were happy you would have happier thoughts.

BlueDawn666

Yeah I think the very same thing about you....

Nicki

thevoiceoffrederick? Not the voice for me or anyone I know. Just goes to show how full of themselves they are. Kind of like Blaine when he belittled people that spoke at a commissioner meeting or how he publicly treated David Gray. I'm thinking it is more a "reap what you sow" kind of deal with karma.
We have every right to publicly criticize someone that has been so publicly critical of others.

Hayduke2

well said Nicki....

Hayduke2

Voice- you may be right about the ploy to get him off but have to say the rest of your discussion is what is "sad"

mom0f547

I wish I could show you how we tried to help the community. That to try to rise against the tide of the ignorance of the elected is impossible. Exceeded by only the ignorance of those electing the ignorants. I gave up, quit trying after I lost everything but my last breath. "To kick a man when he is down??" He purported himself to be of the highest moral character to be elected. If he shows he is not, he should be vilified as much as he was "honored" for his hypocrisy. .

bosco

"He made a mistake, I believe he said he was sorry'..

Yep, Blaine made a mistake, and yes he is sorry. He's a sorry husband, a sorry father, a sorry individual, and a sorry member of the Young dynasty.

RaeD8s

I agree with you on some points. I feel part of the problem here is a lack of respect in general. Gone are the days when cops were "good" cops. Gone are the days that children actually listened to their parents. Gone are the days that if you got a paycheck, it was because you put effort into your job. Gone are the days of having a work ethic. Of course, this isn't the case for everyone, but I've seen it more often than not.

FrederickFan

Tony Chmelik, Kirby Delauter and Billy Shreve are still taking direction from Blaine Young.

What does that tell you about their judgment, integrity, and leadership ability?

There isn't enough bleach in the world to disinfect after Blaine Young.

please provide proof, oh, you don't have any

BUS TRIP AUGUST 23. WHO'S IN???

Make it a one way trip, grow up

Voice, you might want to consider your own advice and not try to justify someone else's moral judgement....

DeDeuceCoupe32

You gonna foot the bill or me?

DeDeuceCoupe32

Im all for law enforcement shutting down the sex trade and such, but going after someone trying to buy sex from another adult is a waste of my tax dollars. Its as bad as tax dollars wasted on busting some one smoking a joint. More PC feel good wasted tax dollars.

bmclearen

The trial is important because it could possibly lead to other questionable things that Young did while in, and out of office. Go het him.

thevoiceoffrederick

You have no clue what you are talking about, the lawyer most likely asked for a continuance or a postponement for many reasons. The other things your are trying connect would not be admissible because they are unrelated. grow up

BlueDawn666

I actually agree with you on this....all of the above. They were two consenting adults, but again really Blaine couldn't find another consenting adult to hook-up with that wasn't a hooker?

rbtdt5

I thought you were an escort Blue?

BlueDawn666

I am at an abortion clinic...would care to join me next time? I help women access their choice would love to have you join me..you game?

rbtdt5

No, You seem very full of hate to me, not someone I would enjoy being around. Thanks for the invite though.

BstD59

I support legalizing prostitution but while it is illegal those who participate either as a prostitute or a john need to be prosecuted.

phydeaux994

Many of the prostitutes are victims of sex trafficking and are underage. Prostitution is not a victimless crime.

BlueDawn666

Legalize it and regulate it, sex trafficking and underage girls will no longer be a problem. Just like with pot, legalizing takes those elements away for the most part.

jsummerstay

No, legalizing it does not stop women and girls being sex trafficked. It does not stop underage girls being used and abused. Look at stories of underage girls (and there are many--but the official news trying to bring tourism tries to hide them) in countries or areas of countries where it is legal. Also, economic necessity/hardship causes women in difficult situations to turn to becoming prostituted out of need for food and rent and basic necessities, when they wouldn't want to do it. It leads to many instances of the most vulnerable being used and/or preyed upon, whether legal or illegal. copy and past this link and read the article (take the spaces out before .com for it to work). Girls who enter this legal brothel in India often start at 12 to 14. A much better solution for these women would have been to find other jobs and ways to make a living for them. And this is just one example that I read in the news a couple days ago. There are so so many. https://www.washingtonpost. com/news/in-sight/wp/2016/06/13/heartbreaking-photos-show-what-its-like-living-in-a-walled-city-of-a-brothel/?tid=hybrid_experimentrandom_1_na
excerpt: "The most vulnerable stage is when a young sex worker enters the brothel — she is called a bonded girl. Bonded girls are usually 12 to 14 years old.

These girls come from poor families and are often victims of trafficking. They have no freedom or rights. They belong to a madam, have debts and are not allowed to go outside or keep their money. When they have paid all their debts, which takes somewhere between one to five years, they become independent sex workers. Then, they can refuse customers and keep their own money. From the moment that a woman has paid her debts, she is free to leave the brothel. But these women are socially stigmatized outside their “homes” and thus often choose to stay and continue supporting their families with their earnings."
If one of the two adults is being paid for sex, it's not between two consenting adults because one doesn't know what economic or other pressures the one being paid is under. And so so often, the reality is that the sex trade leads to trafficking and underage victimes.

thevoiceoffrederick

That's not the smart answer, better schools, better education, stronger economy so women can get better paying jobs and not take the easy road for sex for better money. Based on what I have ready these women make more money in an hour then a shift at any fast food or retail job. That's a problem, what are you doing to help, Its sure hasn't helped in Holland. But most only hear about the "good" side f the sex industry in Holland or Amsterdam, not the hard cold reality.

BlueDawn666

Amnesty International, one of the biggest human-rights groups in the world, is calling for prostitution to be legalized worldwide. But it's facing major backlash from human trafficking groups, who say that could do more harm than good.

In August, the group will ask its delegates to vote on a proposal that calls for the decriminalization of sex work. The proposal makes it clear that human trafficking for sexual exploitation should be criminalized around the world, and certainly if the prostitution involves children. "Criminalization, in its varying forms, exposes sex workers to increased risk of human rights abuses," the proposal reads.
But some sex workers say activists like Dunham and Winslet shouldn't speak for people who aren't in their privileged situation, and that criminalizing prostitution makes it tougher for people who are trying to leave it, and can actually be harmful to women. "I've definitely experienced acts where I consider myself a victim of sexual assault and feel like there's no option, knowing the person who hurt me made that decision knowing I couldn't go to the police," a sex worker who went by the name Jane told The Daily Beast.

jsummerstay

Of course women who are prostituted should not be prosecuted. The people who buy sex should be prosecuted! Making it legal is not the answer though. This is a great article. excerpt:
"Some assert that this “profession” can be empowering and that legalizing and regulating all aspects of prostitution will mitigate the harm that accompanies it. But I cannot accept a policy prescription that codifies such a pernicious form of violence against women. Normalizing the act of buying sex also debases men by assuming that they are entitled to access women’s bodies for sexual gratification. If paying for sex is normalized, then every young boy will learn that women and girls are commodities to be bought and sold."

DeDeuce - all those young women who get involved in the sex trade and punishing those who exploit them is not a waste of anyone's tax dollars....

rbtdt5

Dang, just kick a man when he's down. Good for you Frederick, stay classy

BlueDawn666

Really? How is reporting on the news kicking a man while he is down, are you seriously defending him? See what I don't get is why he went looking for a hook-up outside of Frederick? Had Chuckle's boys have caught him this would have never made the news, they have been protecting Blaine's hook-ups for years, covering for Blaine for years. Blaine knew this, it is almost like he wanted to get caught, so it is his fault he is being kicked. Maybe you should ask him why he hooked-up outside of protected territory ? That would really be interesting to know.......

rbtdt5

I'm talking about the comments not the news. I'm glad you want to know more. Personally I don't care enough about him to wonder anymore. He'll never hold office in this town again and that's good enough for me.

BlueDawn666

yeah you must because here you are in the comment section commenting about the comments..you must care a tad for Blaine?

rbtdt5

yep, he's my buddy...

BlueDawn666

Well ask him why he didn't hook-up in protected territory....you say you don't wonder anymore, which means at one time you did care about him, what did he do to make you not care? Do you have any dirt you would like to fling about him?

rbtdt5

He left office. He no longer has any effect on my life.

Doritos

This is a health alert anybody that slept with the pig get tested

BstD59

Young has set the bar very low for unacceptable behavior by a politician as well as by a husband. He genuinely creeps me out.

BlueDawn666

Yeah it's hard to know what Karen OR Regina saw him.....his creep factor is way off the charts.

Reader1954

why is it that so many trials continue to get posponed. No wonder courts are backed up.

DeDeuceCoupe32

Your tax dollars being wasted.

KellyAlzan

Lol - not guilty, yet he started undressing as soon as he walked in

shiftless88

That description made me laugh so hard when I first read it. It was obvious that this wasn't some shy guy using a hooker for the first time.

CRSmith88

He's such a caring person too. Didn't you see he asked "what do you do?" (for a living?) before mentioning how short he was on time. It sounds like he wanted to get to know her first. People who are not guilty typically apologize to their family's immediately afterwards anyway!

DeDeuceCoupe32

KA hiring a prostitute is as low as hiring an illegal! HELLO

rbtdt5

KA hires illegals. She is throwing stones from her glass house. Also she feels it's safe to text and drive... probably drinks and drives too

KellyAlzan

How do you know who KA hires? Fact vs speculation :)

gabrielshorn2013

Kelly, you have said asuch on this forum, as well as saying that you text and drive. Were you telling the truth then, or stirring up controversy?

DickD

Blaine should sue to get his money back, Trump would. It was fraud, Blaine. lol

marylandmirage

"Young’s attorney, Peter Sean O’Neill, said Wednesday that Young will plead not guilty." ************ Of course he wasn't guilty. He must have just accidentally walked into the wrong hotel room that just happened to have a "prostitute" in it.
