Md. county exec out after misconduct conviction
Friday - 2/1/2013, 3:16pm EST
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The chief executive of Maryland's fourth-largest county has resigned days after being found guilty of misconduct in office for, among other things, having a secretary empty his urine catheter bag for months.
Sixty-nine-year-old John Leopold was automatically suspended when the judge convicted him Tuesday on two counts of misconduct for also using members of his security detail to perform political activities. Leopold announced his resignation in a letter to the acting chief executive of Anne Arundel County.
Judge Dennis Sweeney described Leopold as "predatory and cruel" for requiring his secretary to empty the urine bag on her hands and knees up to three times a day for nine or 10 months in 2010.
Leopold said in his resignation letter that he made "serious errors in judgment."
