A judge has denied Del. Donald Dwyer's request to shorten his 60-day jail sentence in drunken driving and drunken boating cases, the delegate's lawyer said.
Attorney David Fischer of Glen Burnie asked for a hearing on reducing the jail term, which Dwyer is serving on weekends. A judge denied the request last week, Fischer said.
Judge Emory Plitt, a retired judge from Harford County, sentenced Dwyer in October to a year in jail with all but 60 days suspended in the two cases.
Dwyer had pleaded guilty to operating a boat under the influence in a crash in August 2012 on the Magothy River that injured himself and six others, as well as to driving a car while impaired in August of this year, when police saw him speeding and swerving on Route 100 in Pasadena.
