Del. Don Dwyer has lost a bid to modify his 60-day jail sentence for a drunken boating crash and a drunken driving arrest.
A judge refuses to revoke bail for Don Dwyer–the Anne Arundel County delegate arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. The decision isn’t sitting well with some, since he pleaded guilty to being intoxicated during a boat crash last summer.
The Annapolis District Court Judge told the Maryland lawmaker he made a bad decision and has to accept the consequences. Now Delegate Don Dwyer is appealing, meaning his jail sentence is on hold.
A Maryland politician says he’s reached a deal with prosecutors over a drunken boating accident. He says he’s sorry—but is that enough?
Public humiliation and a fresh start. A drunken boating accident last summer forces prominent State Delegate Don Dwyer to admit he’s an alcoholic.
A Maryland lawmaker charged with operating a boat under the influence of alcohol says that he began drinking more after separating from his wife and feeling “betrayed” by longtime colleagues who voted for gay marriage.
A prominent state delegate is now officially charged for a serious boating accident. Police say he was drunk while operating that boat.
