Play associated audio

Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold has been indicted and charged with multiple counts of misconduct in office.

Leopold's indictment outlines charges he misused his executive protection squad for political and personal benefit. Allegations detail how Leopold asked his county-funded police detail to transport him and wait while he engaged in sexual activity in parking lots.

Prosecutors also say he asked police officers to remove signs of political opponents.

Leopold is charged with four counts of misconduct in office and one count of fraudulent misappropriation of county funds. All of the charges are misdemeanors.

Leopold did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
