>> this is a wbal-tv 11 editorial with president and general manager dan joerres. >> after two tumultuous years of investigations, former anne arundel county executive john leopold was convicted on two counts of misdemeanor criminal misconduct. the last time we saw him, his head was bowed and hands cuffed behind his back as he was led from the court room to the county jail. now he wants to run for public office again. he was sentenced to two years but served 30 days in jail and 30 days of house arrest, and is now serving five years of probation. although he resigned his post in february, he is appealing his case, which is scheduled to be heard next january. his lawyer has filed a 90-page brief with the maryland court of special appeals, arguing that leopold should have the right to run for public office.
6:53 am
the brief says the court lacked the authority to ban him from running for office and the ban should be stricken as a condition of his sentence. many anne arundel county residents breathed a collective sigh of relief after his conviction and resignation. now, images of new york's disgraced politicians re- emerging, and the ugly scenario that followed could be the scene in annapolis. some supporters say leopold's punishment was harsh. others say violation of the public trust deserved even a stiffer sentence. leopold was elected county executive after serving in the house of delegates for 18 years, but while the court's response will be legal, the public response will be emotional, as they remember two years of embarrassment they have already experienced. for more on the case, go to
