Judge denies request to revoke Del. Don Dwyer's bond

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.

However, Kirwan said the judge did impose the following conditions on the defendant:
  • He must successfully complete a 28-day residential treatment program in which he is enrolled.
  • He must have an interlock device on any vehicle he operates.
  • Once he is released from the treatment program he must report to and is subject to supervision by the Maryland Department of Parole & Probation.
  • He must submit to random urinalysis upon his release from the treatment program.
  • He is to remain alcohol free and to avoid any establishment that sells or provides alcohol.

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.
