Del. Don H. Dwyer Jr., convicted twice of alcohol-related offenses over the past two years, urged fellow lawmakers Wednesday to approve his bill requiring mandatory minimum sentences for officials convicted of drunken driving. The Anne Arundel County Republican was one of two witnesses in favor of the bill at a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. He argued that elected officials who violate the law should be punished more severely than ordinary citizens. "You are held to a higher standard, and you are not an average Joe," was the message the judge in Dwyer's case delivered to him, the lawmaker told the committee.

The cases were part of a food stamp fraud sting that implicated 10 convenience store owners in the Baltimore area in September.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Heather R. Mizeur plans to propose what she calls a "transformational" approach to fighting crime on Wednesday, in which she would eliminate mandatory minimum sentences and use the governor's clemency and pardon powers to cut the prison population. Mizeur will introduce a detailed plan calling for a holistic approach to reducing crime, including social and educational programs as well as law enforcement strategies. "We cannot settle on 'tough on crime' after the fact - we need to stop crime before it occurs," she says in a 13-page plan.

A former employee at the Maryland School for the Deaf was sentenced Friday to seven years in prison for sexually abusing two girls at the school. Clarence Cepheus Taylor III, 38, showed no emotion as Howard County Circuit Judge William V. Tucker pronounced the sentence after a three-hour hearing. A young man seated in the spectator's gallery stood up quickly, shouted in protest and stormed out of the courtroom. Taylor, who worked as a school aide, was found guilty in a jury trial in November of two counts of child sexual abuse for inappropriately touching a 10-year-old girl and a 12-year-old girl at the Columbia campus.
