ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Calling him a "public safety risk," a prosecutor unsuccessfully fought to have the bond revoked of a Maryland lawmaker who was arrested last month for allegedly driving under the influence despite awaiting sentencing on a drunken boating conviction.
Howard County State's Attorney spokesman T. Wayne Kirwan said prosecutor Claude de Vastey-Jones filed the motion to revoke the bond of Del. Don Dwyer, an Anne Arundel County Republican. The motion was denied because Dwyer has not been convicted of his most recent charge yet.
Dwyer will be sentenced on his drunken boating conviction on Oct. 25 in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. He has a Nov. 18 trial date in Anne Arundel District Court on his August DUI arrest.
