Dwyer urges tough DUI penalties for public officials

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.
