A special prosecutor is asking a judge for a new sentence in the drunken-driving case of the director of the civil rights office of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.

Last month, Carl Snowden received probation before judgment on a drunken-driving charge for the second time in eight years. That sentence means Snowden would avoid a conviction if the terms of probation are completed. But under a 2009 change in the law, a person can only get probation before judgment every 10 years in such cases.

Talbot County Assistant State’s Attorney Henry Dove said he did not know the law had changed, and filed a request on Monday to correct the sentence.
