ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Attorneys have failed to reach a plea agreement in misconduct cases relating to Delegate Tiffany Alston.
State prosecutors and defense attorneys met Wednesday for a hearing on a plea deal, but an agreement did not come together.
Anne Arundel Circuit Court Judge Paul Harris set a Nov. 5 hearing for arguments relating to a case in which Alston was found guilty of using $800 in state money to pay an employee in her law office. Her attorneys are contesting the jury's finding.
Alston, D-Prince George's, is scheduled for a trial next month on charges she used campaign money to pay wedding expenses.
J. Wyndal Gordon, Alston's attorney, says the question of whether Alston can remain in office is one of the issues attorneys are discussing in a possible plea agreement.
