He was convicted of misconduct in office, resigned from his post and served time in jail.
But that hasn't stopped John Leopold from criticizing current Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman.
Leopold is currently serving 30 days of home detention, giving him time to write several letters to local newspapers. In them, he has criticized Neuman for her saying the county is falling behind in culture, attitude and investment.
Neuman says she's aware of the letters, and she isn't impacted by the comments.

ABC2 News attempted to reach out to Leopold several times today, but he declined to comment.
