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.

Arenas' lawyer says his client is "a peaceful man" who played a misguided prank and has already been severely punished for bringing guns into the Washington Wizards locker room. He says the more fitting punishment is probation and community service. Both sides staked out their positions Tuesday in court filings, ahead of Friday's sentencing in D.C. Superior Court.

A Maryland appeals court upheld former Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold's convictions of misconduct Wednesday but struck down a part of his sentence that prevents him from running for office while on probation. Leopold was found guilty in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court of two counts of misconduct in January 2013, relating to ordering officers on his police detail and county employees to carry out personal and campaign tasks. Leopold's lawyers argued on appeal that he couldn't have known that his actions would be illegal because they aren't specifically prohibited in the law. They also challenged a provision of Leopold's sentence that barred him from running for public office while he serves probation.
