Del. Don Dwyer gets 60 days in jail


The Gazette reports that Don Dwyer pleaded guilty in his August DUI case today and was sentenced for it and for his previous drunk boating case.

According to the Gazette:

The Pasadena Republican has until Nov. 9 to begin serving 30 days for each misdemeanor offense. Plitt, brought in from Harford County to hear the case, ordered the sentences to run consecutively and allowed Dwyer to serve them on weekends.

The three-term delegate also will serve three-years of probation on the drunken boating conviction. During that time he must complete his alcohol counseling program, attend Alcohol Anonymous meetings and submit to random testing to show he is not drinking.

Plitt fined him $1,000 but agreed to suspend it.

Dwyer had no comment today but had previously said he still plans to run for re-election next year.
