Leopold Pays $75K Fine For Misconduct In Office

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold has paid a $75,000 fine for misconduct.

The Capital of Annapolis reports that court records show Leopold paid the fine late last month. He resigned in February and served 30 days in jail and two weeks of home detention for two counts of criminal misconduct. Leopold forced members of his security detail to perform campaign work and another county employee to empty his urinary catheter bag.

As part of the sentence, Judge Dennis Sweeney ordered Leopold to pay a $100,000 fine to the state, or a $75,000 fine to the county.

Leopold is completing 400 hours of community service at the Anne Arundel Food Bank.
