David Ector of Calvert County has been sentenced to probation for illegally discharging fill material into the Chesapeake Bay. Ector must remove the fill material from the Bay as a condition of his sentence, which was imposed Wednesday in federal court in Greenbelt.

Prosecutors say the 55-year-old Ector owned a cliff-front property in Calvert County and, in May 2010, was responsible for dumping large rocks over the cliff face and into the Bay without a permit.

Prosecutors say the dumping interfered with the habitat of an endangered species.
