ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Maryland Del. Don Dwyer will serve 20 weekends in jail, beginning Nov. 9 as part of his sentence related to two DUI-related cases over the past year.
Dwyer was sentenced Friday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court to 30 days in jail for each case – 60 days total – but will only have to serve 40 of those days in jail. He also was placed on three years of probation and is not allowed to drink or be around alcohol.
Dwyer, an Anne Arundel County Republican , pleaded guilty in August to driving a boat while under the influence of alcohol, online court records show.
On Aug. 22, 2012 Dwyer's boat collided with another boat. Prosecutors said Dwyer drank eight beers and had a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit at the time of the crash.
The most recent case happened about a year later , when this past August, an Anne Arundel County police officer saw Dwyer committing several driving violations at around 12:40 a.m. in the area of Route 100 East and Edwin Raynor Boulevard in Pasadena. The officer, who was transporting a prisoner at the time, felt the violations were serious enough that he had to pull the vehicle over at that time.
