Maryland Man Sentenced to 10 Years For Stabbing Woman in Butt With Semen Filled Syringe

You read that right.

Thomas Stemen, 52, of Churchton was sentenced to 10 years of active incarceration and five years of supervised probation in the stabbing of a woman with a semen-filled syringe outside of a local grocery store.

The defendant entered an Alford plea to one count of felony first degree assault and one count of second degree assault on June 16, 2020. He must also undergo a substance abuse and a mental health evaluation and receive treatment upon his release from prison.

“The defendant’s actions were truly horrific,” said State’s Attorney Anne Colt Leitess. “He intentionally went out into our community with the goal of assaulting unsuspecting women. With this sentence, he will removed from our community for a long time. I am thankful for the citizens who identified him from video released by law enforcement and that the survivors are able to move forward after this senseless assault.”
