Lottery Winner Convicted A Chevy Chase resident who won more than $150,000 by playing the Maryland State Lottery over several years has been convicted on charges that he failed to file state income tax returns, Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. said yesterday.
Faegh Ansari-Jaberi, 57, admitted that he failed to report lottery winnings totaling $157,000 as well as other taxable income in the three years beginning in 2000. A spokesman for Curran said Ansari-Jaberi played keno, a game that yields prizes of up to $100,000 if the numbers chosen by players match randomly generated numbers.
Ansari-Jaberi, whose home number is unlisted, could not be reached for comment. A message left for his attorney was not returned. Ansari-Jaberi is to be sentenced Sept. 12.
Son Charged A 22-year-old Indian Head man was arrested Tuesday and charged with attempted first-degree murder in the stabbing of his mother.
The Charles County Sheriff's Office arrested the man in the 100 block of Charles Place in Indian Head. He is being held at the Charles County Detention Center without bond. His mother, 41, was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening after the attack Tuesday.
The sheriff's office does not name suspects in nonfatal domestic disputes to protect the identity of the victim.

Sentence Recommended A Prince William County jury recommended yesterday that a Dumfries woman, convicted of involuntary manslaughter and felony child abuse in the drowning of her infant, serve the maximum 10 years for each offense.
Before the recommendation, Alison N. Spivey, 25, cried over the loss of her daughter and acknowledged that she had a serious drug problem. But prosecutors said she showed no remorse Aug. 27, when she snorted prescription drugs, fell asleep and left another addict to care for 6-month-old Josephine E. Mott. She drowned after being left unattended in a bathtub.
