The Lutherville Republican pleaded guilty earlier this month to driving under the influence.
In February, Councilman Huff was stopped by an officer while driving in his county vehicle on York Road in Towson.

As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped other charges, including a headlight violation and negligent driving.
Prosecutors wanted Huff to face a harsher consequence, pointing to his guilty plea in a hit-and-run that led to injuries 18 years ago.
Huff will also have points added to his driver’s license.
