Snow Delays Start of Leopold Trial

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Snowy weather is delaying the start of Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold’s misconduct trial.

A court spokeswoman says the trial will resume Thursday at 10 a.m., an hour later than scheduled.

Deputy state prosecutor Thomas “Mike” McDonough says prosecutors will try to wrap up their case on Thursday.

A former member of Leopold’s security detail testified Wednesday that he was ordered to run interference between Leopold and his mistress in addition to a number of other personal requests. Defense attorneys said the officer and other members of the security detail had a “fraternal” relationship with the county executives and no laws were broken.

Leopold is facing charges of misconduct in office for allegedly using his police detail for personal and political purposes. The county executive has maintained his innocence.
