T means Time, separating the DATE component on the left from the Time on the right. The time being 07(h) 33(m) 46 (S) 351 (mS) , -0500 indicates your local timezone offset relative to UTC, puts you in EDT?

See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2597083/illegal-pattern-character-t-when-parsing-a-date-string-to-java-date and http://javatechniques.com/blog/dateformat-and-simpledateformat-examples/

Looks to me like you're including the milliseconds in your date format strings.
