Maryland Delegate Sentenced To 60 Days In Jail For DWI Incidents

In May, he pleaded guilty to boating while intoxicated. A judge sentenced him to 30 days in prison for each offense.

Dwyer will be able to serve the time on weekends.

Police pulled Dwyer over in August after an officer observed him driving erratically in Pasadena. The boating collision occurred in August 2012 and left seven people injured. Police reported Dwyer's blood-alcohol content to be more than twice the legal limit at the time of the boating crash.
