Corporal testifies in Leopold trial

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WMAR) - More police officers took the stand today in the John Leopold misconduct trial. So far, we are hearing about everything from sexual activity in a car to a urine bag emptied in a coffee can. 

 
They were assigned to Anne Arundel County Executive Leopold, but during that time, his behavior has been called into question. 
 
Corporal Howard Brown says he was directed to pick up Leopold's campaign signs while on the County's time. 
 
The Corporal also described, in detail, the sexual activity Leopold had with another County employee. He went on to say that security officers were instructed to wait un a vacant parking lot at least once a week. 
 
Karla Hamner was listening to the testimony, and makes similar accusations in her own civil lawsuit. 
 
"I'm not sitting six feet away from him facing him like these other people are," says Hamner. "You can see and hear the fear and kind of turmoil in their voice."
 
The defense argued Leopold never had to sign off on overtime pay and complaints to to Chief of Police were not addressed. 
 
The trial continues at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow.
