ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold, released after serving 30 days in jail, reflected on his time there in an essay and poem he sent to a local newspaper.

The essay, titled “A View from the County Jail,” was sent to The Capital of Annapolis on Wednesday. In it, the 70-year-old Leopold wrote about being able to see a few rooftops and leafless trees.

Leopold also sent the newspaper a 15-line poem called “The Inmate.”

Leopold was released from the county detention center last week. He was convicted in January for misconduct in office for forcing members of his security detail to perform campaign work and another county employee to empty his urinary catheter bag.
