Disgraced former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold has been sentenced on two counts of misconduct in office.
Leopold will spend 30 days behind bars and another 30 days under house arrest. Judge Dennis M. Sweeney, who found Leopold guilty in January, also fined him $100,000 and ordered 400 hours of community service.
The sentencing in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court closes the book on two rocky years for the Republican, who resigned from office three days after he was convicted of using county employees to do his bidding for his personal and political gain.
Leopold, who is 70 years old, apologized to the court for his actions.
