Former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold was released from the Jennifer Road Detention Center Friday morning. He served a 30-day sentence after being convicted earlier this year of misconduct in office.

In addition to his sentence, Leopold, 70, still must serve 30 days of home detention, perform 400 hours of community service, and pay a $75,000 fine.

A judge convicted the Republican in January of forcing members of his security detail to perform campaign work and having another county employee empty his urinary catheter bag.

Leopold resigned from officer three days after he was convicted.
