Lawyer: Police Want Immunity In Leopold Probe

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — An attorney for members of the security detail of Anne Arundel’s county executive says he is negotiating an immunity deal that would let his clients provide information without the threat of prosecution in a probe of County Executive John R. Leopold.

John M. Singleton, who is acting on behalf of five members of Leopold’s security detail, says he is negotiating with state prosecutors. Details of the probe have not been released, but the office of state prosecutor investigates state election law violations, ethics law violations and misconduct in office by public officials.

Leopold said earlier this week that members of his security detail helped him during his campaign last year when he was recovering from back surgery.

    What are they investigating this time? I believe County Executive Leopold has done a tremendous job in Anne Arundel County, and that someone is out to get him.

      Evidently you haven’t been reading the papers over the past couple of years, or listening to the news. Time to wake up and smell the coffee! It’s like saying Clinton did no wrong as president.

    That’s pure political BS! Should discovery show if any of these individuals did wrong, they too need to be disciplined like (and this is the funny part) any other criminal. The dirt has only just been scratched – no doubt there is more dirt under that dirt. Wrong is wrong!!!

    To Supporter: you must live in a nice area of AA County. I live in Glen Burnie which used to be very nice. Every year, it is more and more of a cesspool. I can’t see anything he has done for us in GB.

    Why does he even need a security detail. He sure didn’t need one when he was getting alittle something something in the parking lot of Annapolis Mall.
