Judge strikes conviction, places man on probation

September 19, 1996

A Carroll County Circuit Court judge yesterday set aside the conviction of a man who surrendered to police in the burglary of a Finksburg restaurant.

Judge Luke K. Burns Jr. struck a guilty finding against Daniel S. Waddell, 30, of the 2800 block of Old Westminster Pike, Finksburg, after hearing that Waddell has successfully worked to overcome drug and alcohol addictions.

Burns placed Waddell on three years' probation, the first half to be supervised.

He also ordered Waddell to pay $3,000 in restitution and continue treatment.

As part of a plea bargain, Waddell had agreed to serve up to 90 days in jail.
