Md. Man Gets 12 Years In Attack On Campers

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Hagerstown man accused of terrorizing four teenagers at a campsite last year is going to prison.

Zachary Lee, 22, pleaded guilty Wednesday to four counts of attempted armed robbery. A Frederick County judge sentenced Lee to 12 years behind bars for his role in the attack last April at a campsite along the Monocacy River near Tuscarora.

Lee is the final defendant in the case.

Nicholas Cann, 22, of Frederick was sentenced to 12 years in prison in February. Co-defendant George Carroll of Frederick was sentenced in November to 18 years in prison.

The victims told police that the defendants, who were camping nearby, threatened them with machetes and a baseball bat and took their money.

  • Sick of stupid

    I camp regularly and have for several years, with five kids what else is there to do that will actually bring relaxation and fun. Other then the occassionally stolen beer out of the cooler by curious kids, we have never had any trouble. But I will tell you that I will be arming myself from now on. People have changed and now nothing is sacred!!!! SAD
